THE QUIET ONES is an upcoming supernatural thriller/horror film directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal, U.S. Marshals) and co-written by Craig Rosenberg, Oren Moverman and Tom de Ville. The film stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne and Laurie Calvert. It is the first production from Hammer Films since the record-breaking The Woman In Black.
Inspired by true events, the film tells the story of an unorthodox professor (Harris) who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.
