Did someone watch "the Awakening"?

So, I want to go a little bit old school for my age :P !

I saw a frozen section of the forum about the Steeles and maybe there's someone here who still likes their stuffs. They were really beautiful women and in my opinion they've made a lot of great pics and movies for who likes this kind of products, before they totally disappeared from the web (sigh).

Particularly I'm referring to "the Awakening", Mandi's movie of 2005. I found out this movie three years ago watching videos on YouTube and I immediately felt in love with it, alas, just watching single scenes of the movie on YouTube and since then I always struggled finding the complete version of it. My favorite videos about it were the most complete ones, "Awakening v.4" and "Awakening v.2 Maria's cut", before they also disappeared from the Tube.

Fortunately I've found "Awakening v.2" on YouKu, a Chinese YouTube-like site, but I never ever found the complete version of the movie. Now I'm curious: did someone watch "the Awakening" fully? If yes, what do you guys think about it ? Was it enjoyable as it looks on those video? Is there someone who is in the same situation as me?

I really hope that here there's someone who likes this movie (or the scenes from it :P) the way I do and maybe someone who can help me to take over it, finally :)

I've (as a few others on this site I imagine) have seen it.

I even still have my DVD copy from way back when (before digital downloads were the norm :P ) that was shipped from the US :)

I found it very enjoyable and certainly great for its time (still is, to this day, in many ways tbh) :)

I'm not sure how you would go about acquiring a copy though. Maybe someone else can help in that regard.

Peace.

Considering the various independent films that I have found on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu, I am actually surprised that the original producer/director has not put the film online there.

I watched and enjoyed it. I have the DVD, but not sure my blue ray player still works. With streaming, I have not used my blue ray player in years. Also helps I don't watch much TV anymore. No time.

I have the DVD as well.

I thought it was a great movie. My only problem with it was the occasional gore (Like when Mandi punched a guy's head clean off). I'm just not a fan and didn't think that was necessary. Other than that, it was awesome.

Dang, now I'll have to dig it out and watch it again :)

The production crew and actors (all from Vegas) were big fans/players in the independent horror genre, and it was their calling card. That is why there was a lot of seemingly unnecessary blood/gore in certain scenes.

Somewhat sinfully, I still haven't seen this...I really should get around to it this year.

Yup - still got this from the mid-2000's. I think my favourite scene was 'The Truck Scene" Amazing!

Just out of curiosity how many of you got the physical DVD and how many the digital download version?

The download link is broken.
I'll see about getting it back up tomorrow.
Also, if you're interested in the DVD I have a few left. (Like 200 or so)
Maybe Sarge can distribute??

DVD format - I don't think digital download was around in those days...(Christ, I make it sound like it was the 1970's back then or something!)

Thanks BP! If there is any problems getting the link fixed I'll purchase one of those DVD's for sure. :)

I can assist with distribution. I bought the DVD way back when it came out. Most of whatever was on Youtube was likely pirated.

The Awakening was a fun independent production. I had no hand in it. Just encouragement.

Are you talking about GIRL OF STEELE, or RAVEN?
Pulled them from my YouTube channel a few years ago.
