The Quiet Ones
These days horror movies, for the most part, tend to come fast and cheap, with little in the way of craft other than loud noises and found footage aesthetics. But classic genre banner Hammer are doing things differently as they return to big screen productions. They scored a big hit with "The Woman In Black," a stylish and genuinely spooky ghost story and now they're back with "The Quiet Ones," another period tale that looks like it has an actual budget and something to say.

The Quiet Ones
While the forthcoming "The Quiet Ones" boasts all the hallmarks of horror movies you've seen before — an ancient evil, a based on a true story premise, things banging around loudly — there is reason to be optimistic. Firstly, it's the latest from the revitalized Hammer horror shingle, who dropped the very, very good "The Woman In Black" a couple years back. And, this also has a script co-written by Oren Moverman ("The Messenger," "Rampart") which certainly piques our interest. And now some fresh teases have raised the stakes just a little more.

The Quiet Ones
We got a taste of what the newly revitalized Hammer was cooking up following their smash hit "The Woman In Black," when they dropped a teaser for their next effort "The Quiet Ones" on Halloween. And while the day of the Oscar nominations don't quite carry the same aura of terror, they're nonetheless delivered a full length look at the next chiller.

With over $125 million in the bank for "The Woman In Black" and a sequel on the way, it's safe to say that vintage, and newly rebooted, horror studio Hammer is off to a very healthy start. They managed the rare combo with their Daniel Radcliffe-starring debut: creating a genuinely creepy flick that not only shivered the spines of audiences, but critics too. Can they do it again with "The Quiet Ones"? Well, the first teaser trailer is here and...

Once a go-to institution for screams in the horror world, Hammer Films had a fine output of chillers from the late ‘50s to the mid ‘70s, which included the classic string of monster films in which actor Christopher Lee re-imagined iconic characters like Frankenstein, Dracula, and The Mummy. Then in the late '70s and ‘80s, right as Americans were starting to favor gory slashers like “Friday the 13th” and brutal horror films like “Last House on the Left” and the original “I Spit On Your Grave” to name a few, the fog strewn atmospherics of Hammer Films didn’t seem quite so scary any more. As of late the company has seen a resurgence of sorts, proudly putting out Matt Reeves’ excellent “Let Me In” and the predictable but atmospheric and entertaining “The Woman in Black” this past weekend, along with a few forgettable titles like “Wake Wood” and “The Resident.” Current co-chairman of Exclusive Media Guy East, Nigel Sinclair, along with Hammer Films CEO Simon Oakes, understand that their banner carries a certain amount of prestige and they seem to be heading in the right direction on a number of future projects.
