"THE QUIET ONES is a retro possession story....[With] a deliciously sinister performance from Jared Harris..."

"The movie's script...is a little more conspicuously intelligent than most, threading an intriguing sexual jealousy theme into the movie's narrative mix."
New York Times - 04/25/2014
"[The film makes] a modest racket with the usual bumps in the night, some cackling and screaming, a bit of door slamming and table knocking."

"Another pretty good fright-fest from British horror masters Hammer Films."
A physics professor gathers a group of Ph.D students to help him conceive a poltergeist in this Hammer Films production based on actual events. Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke) is a deeply troubled girl possessed of an all-consuming blackness, and Professor Joseph Coupland (Jared Harris) has a particularly unconventional plan for getting the darkness out of her. Summoning his top students to a secluded estate on the outskirts of London, Professor Coupland proposes that they attempt to manifest the malevolent energy in Jane. What the brilliant instructor and his ambitious students discover when they attempt to do so, however, is a horror so unrelentingly baleful and powerful that it may destroy them all before they even realize what a terrible mistake they've made.
