The Quiet Ones is inspired by true events and tells the story of an unorthodox but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. The film is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and produced by James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Gift Shop), Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, and Simon Oakes along with Steven Chester Prince and Ben Holden in association with The Traveling Picture Show Company (TPSC).

Starring Jared Harris (“Mad Men”, The Ward) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and directed by John Pogue, The Quiet Ones (inspired by true events) tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying than they ever could have imagined.
Other cast members include Erin Richards (“Breaking In”, “Being Human”), Olivia Cooke (“The Secret of Crickley Hall”, “The Fuse”), and West End theatre actor Rory Fleck-Byrne.
