New Trailer For The Quiet Ones Haunts The Web

Jared Harris and Sam Claflin investigate the supernatural

The first trailer for Hammer’s latest chiller, The Quiet Ones, arrived on Halloween last year. This new effort falls in the less spooksome depths of January, but should still be good for a shiver or two. Take a look…

Inspired by real events, The Quiet Ones follows Professor Coupland (Jared Harris), a charismatic, unorthodox Oxford academic who recruits student Brian McNeil (Sam Claflin) and some classmates to carry out a private experiment to create a poltergeist and hopefully crack the key to curing certain negative aspects of the mind. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke). 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 are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation… Yes, as pretty much anyone who has seen a horror film or knows anything about the supernatural could tell you, tangling with such dark forces is pretty much a one-way trip to crazytown, with added screaming and death. Yet people still insist on trying in these things…

The Quiet Ones is out on April 11. Please watch it before submitting your thesis proposals suggesting a poltergeist-based line of study.
