I enjoyed meeting the three stars from the upcoming film “The Quiet Ones” namely Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”), and Jared Harris (“Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows,” “Pompeii,” “Lincoln”).
The film, bearing the mark of Hammer Films, talks about extracting demonic energy or negative energy according to Professor Joseph Coupland (Harris) and he wants to do exactly just that to Jane Harper (Cooke) who has been talking about a supernatural entity named Evey. Coupland hires videographer, Brian McNeil (Claflin) to document the experiment.
I sat down with the cast to talk about their interest in making the movie, working on the set, and the age-old argument between science and the supernatural.
“The Quiet Ones” from director John Pogue arrives in theaters on Friday, April 25.
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. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris (Mad Men and Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), and is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.
