The Quiet Ones

The Quiet Ones

An unorthodox professor (Jared Harris, Mad Men) takes his best student (Sam Claflin, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) off the grid, to take part in a dangerous experiment - testing a troubled young woman with powerful telekinetic abilities - in this British horror. Inspired by true events.

Their subject is a dangerous and disturbed woman (Olivia Cooke, Bates Motel), whose dark energy they hope to manifest. As the experiment unravels, along with their sanity, the rogue PhD students trigger a terrifying and other-worldly force. Produced by legendary British film studio Hammer Films.

Joining Let Me In and The Woman in Black as period-set horror from the resuscitated Hammer Films, The Quiet Ones exploits its 1970s setting in an attempt to conjure nostalgia for the Hammer name. While the results may not be as distinctive or entertaining as the legendary studio’s classics, this even-handed supernatural tale still provides entertainingly spooky thrills.

The arrestingly [Olivia] Cooke is surely a star in the making.

Relies on high production values and sense-battering shock tactics to make up for wooden performances and an illogical, silly script.
