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.

James Rocchi

"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.

The Quiet Ones is a horror movie that knows how to make its audience squirm, alternating a creepy, unsettling quiet with explosive outbursts and gruesomely realistic violence.

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.

The Quiet Ones is uninspired even by contemporary horror standards - which comes as a bit of a shock, given its pedigree.

The Film Stage

This one floats right through the eyes, past the brain, and out the other side with little more than a whiff on the old neurons.

Village Voice

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

A retro possession story that will wind up being best remembered for its groovy '70s setting (lots of mutton-chop sideburns and T. Rex and Slade songs on the soundtrack) and a deliciously sinister performance from Jared Harris.

"The Quiet Ones" is elegant genre work, and Harris' performance is delightful - over the top, but delightful - his annunciation alone worth the price of admission.

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