The Boring Ones would have been a more appropriate title...
"The Quiet Ones" turned out to be somewhat of a dull and boring movie experience. Which was a shame, because the movie did have potential to be so much more, especially given the setting of the movie.
The story is about a college professor and some of his student assistants performing an experiment on a young woman who is either haunted, possessed or suffering from an unknown ailment.
Story-wise then "The Quiet Ones" wasn't particularly impressive, because the aspects and possibilities that the movie had at hand weren't utilized. And instead, the movie just trotted ahead at a very dull and slow pace, without anything even remotely scary happening. Sure there were some nice enough moments here and there, but they were few and far between, and were hardly enough to salvage the movie in any possible way.
The best parts of "The Quiet Ones" were the acting of Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke.
If you are looking for a good thrill or scare, then "The Quiet Ones" is hardly the movie to spend time on, because it doesn't offer that at all.
The movie doesn't bring anything new to the genre and as such it was a much below average movie. I am rating "The Quiet Ones" a mere 3 out of 10 stars, because I wasn't impressed in one bit.
