I think I expected a more scares from this first trailer for “Quarantine 2: Terminal” director John Pogue’s “The Quiet Ones”, but I guess when you consider it’s from the folks at Hammer, who gave us the Daniel Radcliffe supernatural drama “The Woman in Black”, it sort of makes sense that the horror is very limited and mostly unseen. At least, in the film’s first teaser trailer. Still, consider me unbowled over.
But judge for yourself and take a look at the very first footage from “The Quiet Ones”, starring Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis and that hunky, shirtless guy in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”.
Inspired by true events,THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox professor (Harris) who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.
Starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke, and Rory Fleck-Byrne.
She arrives sometime this year (or possibly early next year).
