"There's something there with you, isn't there?" The second trailer for Hammer's newest horror film The Quiet Ones showed a mix of found footage and traditional narrative filmmaking, and now a new shorter trailer does the same, but this one is pretty intense, showing a lot of the craziness that happens in this supernatural college experiment gone wrong.

This looks better than Hammer's The Woman in Black, so we're definitely interested. Watch it! Here's the latest trailer for John Pogue's The Quiet Ones, originally from Apple: The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal) from a script he wrote with Craig Rosenberg (The Uninvited) and Oren Moverman (Rampart, The Messenger).
