The Quiet Ones Blu-ray & DVD Release Details

2 June 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A college experiment gone terribly wrong usually results in a failing grade, but for the students in The Quiet Ones, it could result in their deaths. In Hammer’s 1970′s-set film about paranormal possession, more is on the line than getting good grades… far more. With this summer already brimming with ghoulish goodies coming out on Blu-ray and DVD, The Quiet Ones is adding their own home media horror flavor to the witch’s brew of upcoming releases.

Good day, crafters of all things abyss-filled. This weekend saw the wide release of John Pogue.s The Quiet Ones, the latest return to form from iconic horror studio Hammer Films, and while the movie was an exercise in style over substance . especially Jared Harris. overly dramatized version of substance . it.s hard to rail against big-screen horror in any form. I just hope Hammer.s next production, the Jack the Ripper tale Gaslight, offers more depth to its jump scares. In bite-sized news, the ever-busy Eli Roth announced casting will soon begin on an untitled paranormal thriller that he co-wrote with Aftershock writer Nicolás López and director Jessica Chandler. Craig MacNeill.s upcoming serial killer trilogy The Boy landed the genius German composer and musician Hauschka to add his signature melodic madness to the films. And indie distribution company The Orchard, as part of their partnership with »

Quiet Ones, Paul Walker Movie Flop, While Derided Diaz Female Revenge Comedy to Top Us/Canada Chart

‘The Other Woman’ 2014 box office: Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann comedy to top North American box office chart despite mostly bad reviews (photo: Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann in ‘The Other Woman’) Starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the Nick Cassavetes-directed comedy The Other Woman will easily top the North American box office this weekend, April 25-27, 2014. The story of three women who gang up to take revenge on their cheating husband/lover, The Other Woman — which would have been more accurately titled "The Other Women" — opened with a solid $9.3 million at 3,205 U.S. and Canadian locations on Friday, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. As the old saying goes, "If you give them trash, they’ll gobble it up (and ask for seconds)" — or something along those lines. Anyhow, 20th Century Fox’s $40 million-budgeted The Other Woman, which has »

Box Office: ‘Other Woman’ Dominates ‘Captain America’ With $9.3 Million on Friday

26 April 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newcomer “The Other Woman” has knocked “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” off its throne after a three-week rule.

Fox’s revenge comedy opened Stateside to $9.3 million on Friday, dominating Disney-Marvel’s superhero pic, which earned $4.5 million. “The Other Woman” is on track for $25 million and “Captain America” will likely draw $15 million-plus.

While the “Captain America” sequel was runner-up on Friday, the blockbuster may come in third in the weekend race as “Heaven Is for Real” poses a real threat. Sony’s faith-based hit looks to repeat last week’s second-place finish with upwards of $15.4 million. Studio projections, however, are more modest at $13 million to $14 million.

The femme-driven, female-skewing “Other Woman” from director Nick Cassavetes has been benefiting from positive word-of-mouth. Although it was mostly panned by critics (24% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), the raunchy girl power pic is performing well partly thanks to its three leading ladies: Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton and Leslie Mann. »

.The Quiet Ones. Movie Review

25 April 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

.The Quiet Ones,. bearing the mark of Hammer Films, is a scary flick that features the age-old debate between science and the supernatural. Jared Harris stars as Professor Coupland, a professor who thinks he can exorcise demons using science. His subject for his experiment is Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke), a possessed young girl with deep, dark secrets. Capturing the entire experiment is Brian McNeil played by Sam Claflin (.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire).

Is .The Quiet Ones. worth your time and money? Check out my review.

Official Synopsis:

From the producer who brought you The Woman In Black and Let Me In comes the unnerving tale of The Quiet Ones. Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an "experiment" on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbors unspeakable secrets.

The Quiet Ones Review

25 April 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Quiet Ones – those who have witnessed the unexplainable, the possibly supernatural, and are rendered speechless beyond logical response. Psychologists, men of scholar, can remain calm behind a wall of reason, pointing to mental manifestations, emotional sickness, and events that can be controlled, but the quiet ones refuse to let the unknown be contained by theories and experiments. Scientists will burn the world down in their quest for knowledge and answers, but sometimes the most preposterous summation begs more attention than the conclusion within safe grasping distance, especially when dealing with demons, possessions, or paranoias thought to be nothing but campfire stories. The quiet ones embrace fear, humility and acceptance while arrogant intellectuals bullishly disregard methods without proof – a confident practice that many knowledgeable minds may discount after watching Hammer’s latest haunted story.

Professor Joseph Coupland (Jared Harris) is a heralded university professor looking to break the boundaries of psychological research. »

Fearnet Movie Review - The Quiet Ones

25 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The recent resurrection of the historical Hammer Films studio was, of course, cause for much celebration among horror fans around the world. The British production company built a name for itself in horror in the 1960s and it's been great to have them back. (You don't have to bother with The Resident, but Hammer productions Wake Wood, Let Me In, and The Woman in Black are all worthwhile horror films.) The company's latest offering is, at best, a mixed bag. The Quiet Ones aims to combine an effectively creepy story set in 1974 with a bunch of "found footage" footage that serves no real purpose.

The plot is pure, simple Hammer stuff: a dedicated but plainly obsessed university professor (the great Jared Harris) and his two graduate students welcome the arrival of a new cameraman (Sam Claflin) who will document their work. And as poor Brian McNeil quickly discovers, the trio's »

‘The Quiet Ones’ Review: Jared Harris Leads a Cast Too Good for This Demonic Nonsense

25 April 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The history of science is so rife with preposterous experiments and stark exploitations that it needn't be cheapened by one more junky mad-scientist horror flick that aims only to scare audiences into jumping out of their seats. And yet director John Pogue's “The Quiet Ones” exists, and it doesn't even aspire to frighten; it's satisfied to screech and shriek. Clever and stylish uses of 1970s period detail and a cast too good for this thin, thought-free material are the only features that distinguish this otherwise generically nonsensical tale of demon possession.

The Quiet Ones – The Review

24 April 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Jane Harper is not the only thing that needs saving in Lionsgate ‘s new 70′s horror film The Quiet Ones.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones tells the story of Professor Joseph Coupland and his team of researchers as they attempt to cure an abandoned foster child named Jane who has been surrounded by strange and alarming behavior her entire life. As their experiments begin to unfold, they recruit a young camera man named Sam to document their findings. What they don’t realize is that they may be dealing with something bigger than mental psychosis. They may be dealing with the supernatural.

Director John Pogue set out to build on the screenplay The Philip Experiment, written by Tom de Ville, and incorporate the fascination of parapsychology and social scientific research of the 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s with a horror film.

Box Office: ‘The Other Woman’ to Ensnare ‘Captain America,’ ‘Heaven Is for Real’

24 April 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The lull before the summer box office storm begins next weekend sees a trio of modest newcomers bow nationwide Friday.

Tracking in the mid-to-high teens, Fox’s femme-driven PG-13-rated comedy “The Other Woman” leads the pack of new entries, expected to rival Disney-Marvel’s three-week box office champ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” So far, the superhero sequel has cumed a marvelous $207 million domestically; pic should gross around $15 million through Sunday.

In addition to “Captain America,” which should fall around 45% Friday-Sunday, Sony’s faith-based hit “Heaven Is for Real” also is expected to have a stellar hold, down potentially 30%, which would translate to approximately $16 million in three days. The film has grossed more than $36 million through Thursday.

Internationally, Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which debuted last weekend to a stellar $46.1 million from just 14 territories, expands to another 18 markets, including Italy, Japan, Russia and South Korea. The sequel will »

‘The Quiet Ones’ Review: Even Seventies Stylings Can’t Save This Standard Issue Haunter

24 April 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Perhaps the most terrifying thing about The Quiet Ones is how blatantly the Hammer horror film rips off other, better features – in fact, for long stretches during its muddled and flat middle act, it’s nearly impossible to not wish that you were watching The Conjuring, a recent outing that does everything that The Quiet Ones wants to do with all the style and flair lacking from the latter production – with little regard for possible repercussions. That kind of recklessness is chilling on its own, that lack of care and originality, the kind that will likely be ripped to shreds by plenty of audience members and critics alike. The Quiet Ones just isn’t original, at least, it’s not original until it tries to be (really tries!) far too late in the feature, when it suddenly slaps on a series of revelations that sound cool and weird and scary in theory, but »

The Quiet Ones - Witness the Film's True Events

24 April 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This weekend's horror offering, Hammer's The Quiet Ones (review), is supposedly based upon true events. So we figured we'd look around and come up with the actual video of said events. Curious? Take a look!

The film draws inspiration from the Philip Experiment of 1972, in which Canadian academic researchers tried to prove that telekinesis, poltergeists, and the like manifest solely through the human mind.

A quick trip to YouTube yielded some fruits for us paranormal-loving souls. The video you see below contains actual footage from the aforementioned experiment, and honestly? It's pretty damned interesting. Check it out, and tell us what you make of it!

The Quiet Ones is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and stars Jared Harris ("Mad Men," The Ward), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Erin Richards ("Breaking In," "Being Human"), Olivia Cooke ("The Secret of Crickley Hall," "The »
