The U.S. release seems to miss out on the director's audio commentary track that is in the U.K. release.

Yeah, which kind of sucks. I guess Studio Canal stepped up and paid to have the commentary done on their own. It's not going to keep me from possibly blind buying this though.

Was going to blind buy the UK release awhile back since they got a cool lenticular slipcover, but I think I'll just wait and see if the US release at least gets a slipcover before I take the plunge on the UK release.

Already have it preordered in Canada, not sure of what features we'll get or miss out on here, but this is a great movie. Was one of my favorites from the Toronto Film Fest that year.

I gave a low score for the UK disc's picture quality.
It's not very noticeable from afar, but if you look closely, there is some very strange DNR work going on which smears the details out.

Is this supposed to be a good quality horror / mystery film? I'm looking for a good one every once and a while.

Edit: Is this anything similar to "The Woman In Black"? I absolutely hated that movie.

They're both films set around the same time period in England and have their similarities, but they are pretty different in story. But if you hated "Woman In Black", you might not like "The Awakening" either.

It's a shame the director's commentary is not on this disc. The track is excellent.

Watched this tonight. Good film, but I am tired of this "let's drain the picture of 90% of its color because it's moody" nonsense.

No spoiler here, but I didn't find the ending ambiguous.

I preferred the Woman in Black to the Awakening. Woman in Black was far scarier in my opinion.
