Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an "experiment" on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbors unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected.
Horror Suspense - This British supernatural horror thriller is quite slow and talky as
well as light on effects and graphic violence; however, there are a
number of intense scenes involving blood and other disturbing images
that make the film not for kids. Jared Harris is the only familiar
actor in the cast.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word, 2 S-words, 2 GD's, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Fleeting non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, hits, blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Very frequent smoking. ACTION: A fight and a fire. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average I gotta tell ya: I had my fingers in front of my eyes about a half dozen times during this movie.... if you look at a horror movie's prime directive to be to scare the viewer, there's no denying that, at times, "The Quiet Ones" got me.
NY PostFull Review Poor This film was sponsored by the venerable British horror studio Hammer, which would have known what to with somebody like Harris during its heyday in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It wouldn't have been a bore like this.

An unorthodox professor uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist.
