From the producer who brought you The Woman In Black and Let Me In comes the unnerving tale of The Quiet Ones. Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland (Jared Harris) along with a team of university students conduct an ‚experiment‚ on Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke), a young girl who harbours unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris (Mad Men and Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), and is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

Olivia Cooke, Erin Richards

Now I've seen a far amount of crappy horror films, films I have brought with the hope of a fright be it big or small. Just something a little different, a little thrilling and without the usual 'trying to make you jump' moments. Most of my hopeful purchases find their way into charity shops however for me the Quiet Ones will not one of them.

Invoking the spirit of early 1970s psychological experiences The Quiet Ones uses both found footage and more standard storytelling to show a scientific investigation into the paranormal. But this film isn't intended to be some exorcism on screen (which are overdone), it's not high gore (yawn), or dead bodies by the bucket load (meh). The Quiet Ones does an impressive job of transporting you back to the 70s with great set design, a fantastic naturalistic score and dare I say it some stella acting!

Admittedly its not really going to set the box office alight as their are some flaws with the script which at times feels uninventive but I have to say I generally found it enjoyable and can certainly see myself going in for multiple re-watches. If you've ever seen the British Horror Fracture it sort of reminds me of that in some strange way.... I suppose its because compared to the US horror its more understated.

So I ask that before you poo poo, have a little looky and make your own mind up about this horror offering.

Oxford Professor Joseph Coupland (Jared Harris) leads a pair of student researchers plus a camera man, known as the "quiet ones" to discover and cure the insanity of Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke) through experimental means. Dr. Coupland believes Jane has "negative energy" that manifests itself into telekinetic which can be controlled to cure the patient. Belief in the supernatural is not tolerated.

During the process, Brian (Sam Claflin) the camera man develops mutual feelings for Jane who has an imaginary demon named Evie. The time frame for this film is 1974 and it makes use of Slade's "Come On Feel the Noise." Early in the movie, the funding for the experiment gets cut so Brian volunteers to use cheaper lower quality film, just what I wanted to hear. Part of the movie is amateur hand held genre while some of it is not.

The film scare factor doesn't pick up until about an hour into it. It then has some bad minor clue twists which didn't help the film's cause.

Might work as a cheap rental. Not overpowering.

Parental Guide: 2 f-bombs. Implied sex. No nudity.

It's great to see Hammer films back as I grew up on their spine-tingling output in the 1960's and 1970's.
The Quiet Ones isn't the best of Hammer by a long shot but it's an interesting enough story with a few nice little shocks along the way.
It's good it's British and not yet another shaky camera Paranormal clone from the USA which seem to have over-run the horror end of the cinema in recent years.
It's a nice jumpy little film if a little messy at times. Maybe the direction could've been a bit tighter, but all in all well worth a watch.

Okay, not the best film ever, but certainly better than the reviews here suggest. It's creepy, well acted, with a great story line. Basic outline? Students, along with their professor, spend time away in an isolated house doing a paranormal experiment on a young girl who they think is possessed. It is a solid film. Creepy, a few jumpy moments. I really liked this film.
