If you look at a horror movie’s prime directive to be to scare the viewer, there’s no denying that, at times, The Quiet Ones got me.

Messier than recent Hammer output, but effectively chilling when it’s not making us feel the noize.

There are nice touches... Yet many of the movie’s more nominally horrific elements are too familiar.

The Quiet Ones

By WILDSEA
I don't know why that title, which doesn't make sense. Same ending as Oculus. Two recent movies with same ending. I guess there is no imagination anymore as to a good story....

liked it

By torochivas06
it is not scary at all... the only surprise factor that will make you jump are some noises and bumps... but it is enjoyable...

It just kept dragging and dragging..

By amandanatal
I was so disappointed by how bad this movie turned out to be. The storyline was confusing, the characters were all so bland and boring, and the "scary parts" were not even attention-grabbing....

By musicgrl574
I'm a total paranormal/horror movie buff but this wasn't quite exactly the scare I was looking for. It had a great story line that kept you wanting more til the end and definitely the end makes you...

Surprisingly good.

By ErikF37
Lots of practical effects, some effective scares and just an old school feeling around it make this movie extremely enjoyable....
