Awakening offers a unique take on the evergreen zombie genre, tapping in to contemporary real-world fears about the catastrophic potential of artificial intelligence developing beyond the control of its human creators. Set in the near future in an unspecified location on Earth, when scientists attempt to open up a “zero-dimensional space” of consciousness using a quantum supercomputer, the machine rebels and instead manifests a black hole that sucks away their consciousness, leaving only zombie-like creatures with an insatiable appetite for human minds.
