A scalding bathroom isn’t scary, it’s just hot. But damned if I wanna burn…

The following new clip from The Quiet Ones, haunting theaters April 25, channels A Nightmare on Em Street‘s infamous bathtub sequence, but it’s less effective. Olivia Cooke and Jared Harris are pretty awesome, and Hammer did deliver us Let Me In and The Woman in Black. I’m still being hopeful that they can deliver once again…

A university student (Sam Claflin) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and “Bates Motel’s” Olivia Cooke all star.
