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.

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.

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.

Terrible film, well acted by everyone just a dull story and certainly no scares.
I really wanted to like this film as it is from the (once) mighty HAMMER FILMS stable but there is very little to reccomend it and I certainly won't be giving it a 2nd viewing, even to see Erin Richerd's legs, for me the only thing worth praising!

Out of Hammer Films, The Quiet Ones is loosely based on the Philip Experiment in Toronto 1972. It involves paranormal research that seeks to prove supernatural entities are in fact manifestations of the human mind.

The complete opposite of Hammer's hugely successful The Woman in Black, The Quiet Ones is set in the 70s (Oxford, England). The house the action is set in is naturally remote, though it lacks the Gothic chill required for maximum impact. The makers are more intent on jolts and screeches to get their scares, which sadly gets a bit tiresome come the mid-point. It's effectively chilling at times, with some well mounted spooky atmospheric moments - while Olivia Cooke as the focal point of the "happenings" gives a sturdy and impressive turn, but it feels old hat and fails to deliver on its promise. 6/10

Oh my good god! Don't even know where to start with how awful this film is. Oh god...so bad! Apart from the truly dreadful acting, and I mean TRULY dreadful, the film was dull as dishwater, in fact the only thing that made it even slightly interesting was the awful acting! The story didn't even make sense, was completely all over the place and was completely unoriginal. I was so utterly offended by what drivel I was watching that I didn't even make it all the way to the end!! I decided I would have more fun trimming my toenails so I did that instead.

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.
