If you approach 'The Awakening' as I did, a fan of Dominic West from 'The Wire' (gritty West) and 'The Hour' (dashing West)  -- well, we’ll always have 'The Wire' and 'The Hour.' He is is so underused that he barely gets to raise an eyebrow in 'The Awakening,' a modest, watchable but pedestrian ghost story set just after World War I.

No one wants to sympathize with a serial killer, yet real life has shown us how often they charm their victims. Dominic West eerily walks that line between seductive and repellent in Sundance Channel’s sharp psychological thriller Appropriate Adult (a film premiering Saturday at 10 PM ET). West plays the real-life Fred West (happily for him, no relation) who tortured and killed at least a dozen women over more than a decade, including one of his own daughters. Sometimes he had an accomplice – his wife.
