On April 25th, 2014, The Quiet Ones opens in theaters nationwide. Based on actual events, the film stars Sam Claflin, Jared Harris, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and Olivia Cooke and was directed by John Pogue.
A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) 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 of Bates Motel). 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, led by their determined professor (Jared Harris of Mad Men), 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.
While I no longer find any claim of "based on actual events" easy to believe, I must admit I do like the trailer. That coupled with how much I dig Olivia Cooke's performance in Bates Motel makes me more than just pretty interested in seeing this.
