Lionsgate has released the first trailer for their latest movie The Quiet Ones, which is inspired by a true story about a group of students who participate in a dangerous experiment to create a poltergeist. As you can imagine, things don’t end well.
Here’s the synopsis:
A university student (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation. Inspired by true events.
The movie was directed by John Pogue and stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne, and Olivia Cooke
The Quiet Ones is set to be released on April 25th, 2014.
