Consensus: While it definitely sports a few palpable scares, The Quiet Ones finds Hammer Films trading too heavily on past glories.

"The Quiet Ones" simply has nothing to say.

"The Quiet Ones" is rated PG-13, but it's scarier than R-rated gorefests, like "Proxy," "Nurse 3D," and "American Mary." Anyone can create disgust; creating slowly-building disquiet is entirely another proposition.

There is a lot to admire as the film embraces a pleasing brand of old-school chills over modern-day, pop-culture hipness.

The Quiet Ones is a pretty ironic title for a horror film whose primary scare tactic is to periodically crank up the volume, sending the needle to the red with a sudden spike in the decibel levels.

With its many desperate attempts at scares and a completely lacking narrative, "The Quiet Ones" is a failure on just about every level.

Unfortunately, it's all very familiar and somewhat tediously played out.

Things certainly do go bump in the night--and the day and the morning and at just about every other possible moment that Pogue can toss in an amped-up sound effect to scare the pants off his hopefully susceptible viewers.

Smarter than the rest despite some dumb tricks, the ironically titled but true blue scare-maker The Quiet Ones undoubtedly leaves you screaming for more. Most… More

A somewhat confusing but uninteresting horror! That doesn't scare nor thrill !
