Hammer has released a new sneak peak video on their new YouTube page giving us our first look at their upcoming new horror film The Quiet Ones. The movie is based on a true story about a professor who with his students create a poltergeist in the early 70's. The movie is being directed by John Pogue, and stars Jared Harris (Mad Men, Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman).
Here's the Synopsis:
Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones tells the story of an unorthodox professor 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 than they ever could have imagined.
I glad to see Hammer back in action making horror films! I love Hammers style and I'm excited about this film, and the other films they have in development. Enjoy the first look at The Quiet Ones.
