One of my most anticipated horror films of the year has to be Hammer’s new production, The Quiet Ones. The film had me really excited from the moment it was announced, and the first trailer had me hooked.
However, my excitement level went through the roof when the incredibly frightening second full length trailer was released a few days ago. I have included that superb trailer below, along with the creepy US poster for the film.
Inspired by true events, THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox professor (Jared 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 realises they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.
Directed by John Pogue, the film stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and Olivia Cooke.
THE QUIET ONES IS RELEASED IN UK CINEMAS ON APRIL 11TH 2014 and US THEATERS ON 25TH APRIL 2014
