A not so very scary, interesting or atmospheric PG-13er
13 April 2014 | by (Bundelkhand Region) – See all my reviews

'The Quiet Ones' starts out as intriguing only to plummet into muddled vagaries and plot-less shenanigans with an overly ambitious undertone and is never fully realized. 'The Quiet Ones' does try to be scary and its vocabulary is for the most part that of British horror with a brisk pace, plenty of moody scenery be it a creepy clinic or the a forest scenes that seem to invoke such classics as the Tale of Two Sisters. Unfortunately it does not adhere to the aesthetics by adding conspicuous special effects that become more laughable as the movie reaches its convoluted climax.

Through most of it there is a feeling of disconnected bits all pieced together with no actual sense, almost as if scenes could have been edited in any random order to the same general effect. While not long it feels like it exhausted itself long before it comes to an actual conclusion. The characters seem only half present and their very stilted lines about the afterlife ring hollow.

All and all, it's a shame how such promise was wasted. Here was an opportunity for dealing with one of the darkest sides of Great Britain, its high suicide rate and to possibly go into beyond disturbing human experiments to justify the title of 'The Quiet Ones'. Hailing from the writer of the ever so famous The Uninvited remake this effort comes across as a disappointment on all fronts.

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of PG-13 violence and terror, PG-13 sexual content, PG-13 thematic material, PG-13 language, PG-13 gore, and PG-13 smoking and PG-13 alcohol usage throughout.
