Storyline

In 1974, Oxford professor Joseph Coupland invites introspective lad Brian McNeil to film his experimental treatment of subject Jane Harper, aided by student assistants Krissi Dalton and Harry Abrams. Jane, a young woman with no memory of the past and repeatedly abandoned by foster families, believes herself possessed by a doll named Evey that gives her telekinetic power. Keeping her awake in an isolated house, Prof. Coupland intends that she puts her evil energy into an actual doll, thereafter destroying it to heal Jane. Amidst strange things happening in the house, Brian feels sorry for Jane and, researching her tattoo, learns an evil secret about Jane's past, and of Prof. Coupland's motivation. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil / revised by statmanjeff

When they put the candle under Jane's arm, the 'flame' can be seen to clearly be one of the plastic 'flameless' battery operated candles - the flame is a stiff piece of paper that doesn't bend. See more »

Lame, Unoriginal and Boring
26 September 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1974, in Oxford, Professor Joseph Coupland (Jared Harris) invites his introspective student Brian McNeil (Sam Claflin) to film his research about the supernatural with his two assistants, Krissi Dalton (Erin Richards) and Harry Abrams (Rory Fleck-Byrne), and the subject Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke).

Jane is a young woman with no memory from the past that has been abandoned that believes she is possessed by a doll named Evey that gives telekinetic power to her. She is kept awake in an isolated house with a doll, where Prof. Coupland intends that she puts her evil energy in and then destroy the doll to healing Jane. Strange things happen in the house and Brian feels sorry for Jane and he researches her tattoo, learning an evil secret about the past of Jane.

"The Quiet Ones" is a lame, unoriginal and boring movie by the new Hammer. The predictable story is not totally bad, but the screenplay is tedious and the camera work is awful. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "A Marca do Medo" ("The Mark of the Fear")
