Who here believes in ghosts? Anyone?
Perhaps you’ll start to believe after sitting through our exclusive trailer for “The Quiet Ones,” the new Hammer horror film directed by John Pogue and starring “The Hunger Games” veteran Sam Claflin, “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” villain Jared Harris, and more.
The film takes place in the 1970s, and follows an Oxford scholar named Professor Coupland (Harris) and his pupil Brian McNeil (Claflin) as they document their attempts to rid a test subject of disease — although from another angle, it would appear she’s possessed. The experiment eventually takes the team to an isolated house in the countryside, where all sorts of horrible things begin to occur.
The trailer is narrated by the haunting voice of a little girl, who recites the following ominous words:
Through the eyes, there’s a door
Uninvited they come in
And the quiet they pray
For the soul has worn thin
There’s those who are young
Those who are weak
They inhabit, possess
They slither and roar
On this night, the Quiet Ones
Will be quiet no more
If the final film is even half as harrowing as the trailer, then we’re all destined for some sleepless nights.
“The Quiet Ones” hits theaters on April 25.
