Hammer has launched their YouTube with a sneak peak behind-the-scenes of their new film, The Quiet Ones, starring Jared Harris and Sam Claflin. Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne also star. The horror pic is currently lensing in Oxfordshire.
Directed by John Pogue, 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.”
The Quiet Ones marks Hammer’s next production after the worldwide box office hit, The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date.
Other Hammer productions in the works include The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death, to be produced with Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures and Alliance Films; Boneshaker to be produced with Cross Creek Pictures; Gaslight written by newcomer Ian Fried and the newly announced The Winchester Mystery House to be produced with Imagination Design Works (IDW) and Nine/8 Entertainment.
