Yahoo! UK has just premiered the first ever trailer for Hammer Films’ The Quiet Ones, the John Pogue-directed supernatural thriller that stars “Mad Men’s” Jared Harris and Sam Claflin.
Inspired by true events, “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 trailer plays more like a teaser as it really holds back on the scares. I’m really hoping there’s a second trailer that gets me crazy excited. Jared Harris is pretty fantastic, and Hammer really hasn’t let us down yet, so there’s no reason not to be excited!
Lionsgate has already slated the pic for release on April 25, 2014 here in the States.
