Teaser: Hammer’s “THE QUIET ONES” Experiments with the Supernatural
The latest picture from the new incarnation of Hammer Films (who, with the likes of WAKE WOOD and THE WOMAN IN BLACK, hasn’t exactly let us down) loosely adapts the real life experiments of 70s parapsychologists who theorized one could create poltergeists and paranormal phenomena with our minds and energy.
In THE QUIET ONES, an unorthodox professor (MAD MEN’s Jared Harris) 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.
This first look at THE QUIET ONES is comparatively quiet itself, setting up its players, their equipment and the promise it will all go horribly wrong. Yahoo! UK premiered. The U.S. will see THE QUIET ONES this April 11, 2014.
