Jared Harris Sets Out to Create a Poltergeist in this New Trailer for THE QUITE ONES!

Hey guys! Horrorella here...

The latest film from Hammer Films, THE QUIET ONES stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor, who enlists a group of students to assist on a series of scientific experiments designed to create a poltergeist.

Period horror can be a lot of fun, and I'm loving the setting on this one. Framing the story within an academic experiment in the 1970's gives it an interesting set-up. It pits science against the supernatural in a way that is not altogether modern. The machines and instruments shown here are at once familiar and foreign. And the addition of recording the proceedings allows them to use a first-person approach when it suits the scene, while still being able to maintain a traditional narrative, as opposed to going found-footage with it.

Check out the trailer below. There's a CGI shot at the end that is a bit jarring, but other than that, I'm excited. I've really enjoyed Hammer's latest offerings, and I can't wait to see what's in store with this one.

THE QUIET ONES co-stars Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne. It opens April 25th.

What do you guys think?
