  • The Quiet Ones

    Trailer for the upcoming theatrical release from the 'new' Hammer...

    A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment -- to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). 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.

    Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones 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.

          I didn't realize until a couple weekends ago that the big hunky guy from HUNGER GAMES 2 is the star of this. I hope he acts better in this one, though.

              Opens in the UK today.

              A fairly positive review here.

              "The Quiet Ones remains cautiously recommended as a titter-inducing night out at the pictures, however: it's well-acted, nicely shot and possessed with enough ideas of its own to distinguish it from the supernatural chiller crowd. Had it balanced its scares with its plot more effectively, it could have been an even more effective piece of modern horror."

                  Watched this last night and for the most part thought it was a pretty cool kinda-sorta ghost story. Olivia Cooke is pretty good in this. Took us a few minutes to realize 'that's the girl from Bates Motel' as obviously her character here is pretty different. I haven't seen The Hunger Games movie Ben references above so I can't compare the hunky guy's performance in this movie to that one but I thought he handled the material well enough. I think the movie bounced back and forth from the 'documentary' footage to the live action footage too haphazardly for its own good and there were times where it took me out of the movie. There's also two spots where the CGI sticks out like a really, really sore thumb. Overall though, being an admitted sucker for supernatural horror and particularly supernatural horror from the UK for whatever reason, I liked it.

                    Oh and the lossless mix on the Blu-ray is fan-fucking-tastic. I had to keep turning down the subwoofer because the room was shaking. This mix gets really, really aggressive and intense in spots, obviously in an attempt to generate jump scares, but it worked.

                      I've read some pretty dire reviews and opinions on this film in the Hammer groups, but saying that my copy will arrive Monday so will form my own opinion once I've watched it (obviously).

                        Didn't like it at all. I thought it wasted the acting talent. Hated the sound too.

                          I thought the sound mix was great BUT I can completely see how it is at odds with the technology used in the movie - it doesn't feel like 16mm (I think that's what they were supposedly shooting on) footage from the 70s when your subwoofer is blowing up every thirty seconds. But I can forgive obvious gaffs like that if I dig the story and I dug the story. Again though, I have a soft spot for a lot of the elements that make up movies like this.

                            I watched this last night and liked it up to a point. Olivia Cooke is great as Jane (nearly typed a massive 'spoiler' there. Oops ). The undercurrents of sexual licentiousness and abuse worked nicely. But it just didn't function as a horror film: most of the scares are predicated on the use of loud noises (of the quiet quiet BANG type) and the appearance of ectoplasm was ridiculous. There's a good scene in which one of the lead characters actually visits a library and does some research (and that's something you see too little of in films these days), but that sequence is too late and too short.

                              That was the bad CGI I was referring to. That part was just flat out stupid. The movie didn't need it and it didn't benefit the film in any way whatsoever.
