It starts as so many of these stories do, Michele (Steffani Brass) invites her friends Sophia (Brooke McKenzie), Travis (Getty Olm), Nate (Dabier), Brandon (Charlie Ian), Jessica (Masha Mendieta) and Rachel (Ann Tomberlin) for a camping trip, but halfway to their campsite they are caught by the rain and seek refuge in a nearby, conveniently empty house - where Sophia then nicks a pendant from a Satanic altar ... and from the moment she's wearing it, she starts to act weird. Later that night, she runs away, and when the others find her, she's reading incantations from a book she has dug up with her own bare hands. After that, Michele and Sophia's friends start falling like flies.

Days later: Michele is now in a hospital, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, while a compassionate detective (Chantelle Albers) wants to learn from her what has really happened to her friends, and whether she actually is a victim or rather a suspect. Michele's testimony though makes little sense and is somehow connected to the witch burnings from the 1600s - but the real problem is, the more she does tell, the more everybody gets (literally) drawn into the story, with fatal endings for those involved ...

 

Reawakened is a very clever horror thriller that really knows how to play with audience expectations and use them to create suspense as well as jump scares: Basically the first half of the film plays like your usual slasher movie, if a well-made one, where teens go to party, encounter a threat, and their inability to make the right decisions only makes whatever it is stronger and has most of them killed. But when the usual slasher movie ends (the final girl got away), this one evolves, adds layers to the story, unfolds the underlying mystery - and goes creepy as hell in the process. And thanks to clever writing as well as an atmosphere-heavy directorial effort and a very competent cast, this strategy works like a charm and offers a great eerie ride for all genre fans.
