Check out the new teaser poster for “The Quiet Ones”, inspired by true events. The film has been one of my most anticipated films nearing release. It also takes that definite, step of validation marking the 21st Century return of Hammer Horror. I feel all is write with my world once more and that has a lot to do with the return of this iconic studio who defined what horror was in the first half of the 20th Century.
“The Quiet Ones” is directed by John Pogue and stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, Olivia Cooke. Lionsgate has just unleashed the teaser poster showing a very modern embrace of the retro appeal of the Gothic, romance that studios had toward the classic, gothic love affair we had with the supernatural and paranormal story telling. “The Quiet Ones” is due out April 25th, the film comes from the producers of “Let Me In” and “The Woman In Black”.
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.
