As with Hammer Films’ highly successful “The Woman in Black,” their latest offering, “The Quiet Ones” seems to be a return to practical horror filmmaking with a little dose of CGI here and there to help with setting the mood. Or I could be wrong and it’s all practical effects. That would be something, wouldn’t it?
Anyways, get another dose of British horror with John Pogue’s “The Quiet Ones,” which has released a new UK trailer and poster, both of which you can take a gander at below, take a ganderers.
A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students, led by their determined professor (Jared Harris of Mad Men), are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.
Starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and Olivia Cooke.
