I thought it was pretty decent. Atmospheric setting, around Oxford University 1974, I found it quite engrossing, a small group consisting of an academic and students conducting very unethical research into paranormal activity/possession of their subject matter. It wasn't exactly scary but more creepy in parts. I thought the acting was good myself and the story flowed well and it had a satisfactory conclusion.
It's pitched as a 15 age rating I suspect due to its subject matter; there's no significant violence, sex or bad language in itself to catagorise it as a 15 in isolation. There's some blood associated with various injuries sustained but you generally just see the aftermath of something. It's filmed partially as a standard film and partially via the hired camera operator enlisted to record all elements of the testing.
The story involves the standard fare of young disturbed girl with the usual question mark hanging over her. Is she possessed or experiencing delusional beliefs? It's only a small cast who carry the majority of the film (5) and I thought all the characters contributed to the proceedings and the different dynamics worked well.

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.

There once was a time when the studio was synonymous with classy horror. Then they disappeared. Then they came back. And only a few people really noticed. Their first efforts returning to the genre had mixed success. However, ‘The Quiet Ones’ really is a film that is best left off their C.V.

It’s a sort of mixture of ‘found footage’ and possession film. Luckily, the whole film isn’t found footage. It’s *supposedly* based on true events. I haven’t looked into this, but I’m guessing it’s about as true as most films that are allegedly based on true events. A university professor is conducting experiments on a girl who is apparently possessed. He also wants it documented by a student cameraman (hence we have elements of point of view shots thrown in the mix for ‘added scare’).

Nothing radical about the premise, but perhaps my biggest gripe was that they tried to set it in the seventies. Seriously… it’s like the film-makers only had access to a sixth form college’s wardrobe department. The ‘costumes’ (and I use that word lightly) are basically the most clichéd seventies outfits I’ve ever seen. In fact, they pretty much look like they could be worn today and no one would really notice. The biggest nod to the seventies are in the haircuts, which are bad. The nerdy cameraman-guy has a clichéd nerdy haircut. The suave rich guy has a clichéd suave rich haircut and the girl just looks like she’s wearing a wig (don’t get me started on the girl – she shows just how ultra decadent she is by constantly waving a cigarette around in one of those long holders they never use any more and wearing mini dresses). Then you have the professor in charge of it all.

First of all i really can't understand why this intelligent,creepy,original and generally disturbing British horror film has been getting bad reviews?..i was gripped at the cinema,and was still gripped watching on the small screen.Horror films these days seem to have all the same scares..where in this film the scares are part of it's story and atmosphere and there isn't a need to keep throwing scare after scare at you like most horrors these days.The story is based on a real life experiment(which i haven't researched,but like the characters you don't know what's going to happen next in their experiment into the supernatural so your as much in the dark,as the characters are and i really like this approach,and my opinion it works..what holds a good horror film is good story and good acting this film has both..and i thought that all the actors were great in this film especially Jared Harris,Sam Claflin and Olivia Cooke!..i really don't get also why people are saying its boring do people have low attention spans?..thought provoking,chilling,disturbing and well acted in equal measure..hammer definitely haven't lost their touch!
