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

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.

Co-written by Oren Moverman ("The Messenger," "Rampart"), and starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and Olivia Cooke, the film follows a London professor in the mid-70s, who works with his students on conducting eerie experiments, that of course, lead to supernatural trouble. Yeah, we know, sounds pretty generic but we're digging the overall mood, and we're hoping that Hammer continues to bring more to the table than just jump scares and shaky cams.

A new trailer for the film has dropped, which you can watch below, along with a clip and featurette. "The Quiet Ones" arrives on April 25th.
