Hammer’s “THE QUIET ONES” Experiments with the Supernatural in New TrailerNews Samuel Zimmerman
Forget simply seeking it out, scientifically experimenting with the supernatural is where the true fun lies. It’s why stories like Richard Matheson’s HELL HOUSE and THE STONE TAPE endure, and it’s there where Hammer’s brand new haunter THE QUIET ONES plants its feet. In the 1974-set film based on actual events, a professor and his group of students investigate “creating” a poltergeist through the energy of their subject, a troubled young girl and her damaged psyche. Frights and plenty of sternly messing about with equipment ensue.
Starring Jared Harris (MAD MEN) and BATES MOTEL’s Olivia Cooke, and directed by John Pogue, Lionsgate releases the Hammer-produced THE QUIET ONES April 25, 2014.
