First Behind-The-Scenes Look At Hammer’s ‘The Quiet Ones’ – Starring Jared Harris & Sam Claflin
Accompanying the launch of Hammer’s new dedicated YouTube Channel, the UK’s most celebrated genre film brand has premiered this first look at their upcoming supernatural thriller/horror ’The Quiet Ones.’ The film follows on from Hammer’s worldwide box office hit, ‘The Woman in Black,’ which starred Daniel Radcliffe and has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date. Directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal), ‘The Quiet Ones’ is lead by Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,‘Mad Men’) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), while Erin Richards (‘Breaking In’, ‘Being Human’), Olivia Cooke (‘The Secret of Crickley Hall’, ‘The Fuse’) and West End theater actor Rory Fleck-Byrne co-star.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows: “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.” Check out the new behind-the-scenes featurette and press release for Hammer’s Youtube Channel below.
