The Quiet Ones first trailer (exclusive)

Teaser from Hammer Films' follow-up to The Woman in Black.

The first trailer for ‘The Quiet Ones’, the new horror from Hammer Films, has arrived - exclusive to Yahoo Movies UK.

Inspired by true events, ‘The Quiet Ones’ tells the story of an unorthodox professor (played by ‘Mad Men’s Jared Harris) 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 and evil than they ever could have imagined.

‘The Quiet Ones’ was filmed at The Bodleian Library and Merton College in Oxford, and also features Sam Claflin, who's also starring in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.

Hammer was founded in 1934 and produced films until the 1980s. They returned to film production in 2010 with the critically acclaimed ‘Let Me In’.
