Awakened is a faith-based thriller. Jacob Harker (Rob Boltin) loses his job as a newspaper reporter. He and his wife, Haley (Gwendolyn Edwards) moves into a rental house owned by Webster Kane (Michael Monks). While cleaning the basement, Jacob found an old audio recording of 60's singer named Carol James (Hannah Hughes). He is captivated by Carol's voice and becomes obsessed with solving a mystery concerning her death that took place in 1965. His curiosity and investigative habits lead him to question Carol's sister, Evelyn and Carol's lover, Webster. Meanwhile, an evil spirit distorts Jacob's mind, frightens Haley in their home, and wreaks havoc on their marriage. Awakened is a rare genre among Christian films. They did a great job at showing that spiritual warfare is real. Ultimately, God always wins because "greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world". (1 John 4:4). Never mess around with an evil spirit. Satan is the father of lies and deception. It's vital that we must familiarize ourselves with truth (God's Word) so that we can detect any lies from the Enemy immediately. Check out this interesting film about faith, spiritual forces, God's power, mercy, and forgiveness. Great performance by the cast. Not recommended for young children.
