The Quiet Ones opens this Friday, April 25th. To mark the occasion I sat down with the film’s stars Sam Claflin (The HungerGames: Catching Fire), Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”) and Jared Harris (“Mad Men”) to discuss the biggest challenges behind bringing this supernatural tale to life. There’s also a hint of a potential unrated cut for the film (even thought we had to cut out the bulk of the answer due to spoilers).
In the film from director John Pogue, “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.“
