THE QUIET ONES Trailer. THE QUIET ONES Stars Jared Harris and Sam Claflin | Collider
Hammer Films has released the first trailer for director John Pogue’s (Quarantine 2) supernatural horror film The Quiet Ones. From the studio behind The Woman in Black, the film stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor who sets up a series of dangerous experiments in order to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. While genuinely good original horror films are few and far between these days, The Quiet Ones doesn’t look half bad. There’s a nice aesthetic to the piece that evokes the found footage genre without feeling forced, and Harris is pretty intimidating as the film’s lead.
Ha, yeah, sorry. Didn't care for Inside all that much.
***Possible SPOILERS for "INSIDE"...***
I found the story a bit predictable (just a lucky guess, maybe) and the French socio-political commentary stuff they threw in seemed kinda clumsy to me. I really liked it visually, though, and thought it was pretty unsettling, in a good way. Just found it to be overrated.
But I'm gonna see Martyrs over the next couple of days since I have a bit of a break in my schedule. After your description to lagwagon, I'm both scared and excited!
Completely second the recommendation of Martyrs. ****, that movie was awesome. I bought it the day the DVD came out and have yet to watch it a second time. One of these days.
As for the list, I agree that it's interesting. Lots of unexpected films. Really glad to see Kairo/Pulse on there.

[BD Review] 'The Visitor' Is a Blizzard of Cinematic Madness -
I think they are showing this at Cinefamily...may have to check it out. I think this was one of the RARE movies on the shelf of the video store I worked at that I never did watch.Quote:
The cast is absolutely bonkers and looking at it, it’s obvious that Assonitis had some kind of pull in Hollywood. Or a lot of people owed him money. Acclaimed director John Huston stars as Jerzy, an intergalactic warrior who’s pursuing a descendant of an evil alien named Sateen. This descendent is a little girl named Katy, who is quickly developing supernatural powers. She’s also wicked good at ice skating and has a pet hawk that’s very possessive of her. Kinda like how Damien had those dogs, Katy has a hawk. Katy’s mom is targeted by a group of shady old men who wish to get her pregnant so she can have an evil baby boy. That’s the gist of the plot, I think.
Glenn Ford also stars as a detective. Lance Henriksen plays Katy’s dad and the owner of an Atlanta basketball team. Shelley Winters (Night of the Hunter) plays Katy’s new nanny, who is on to her nefarious little game. Franco Nero is space Jesus. And Sam Peckinpah plays a doctor, but his lines are dubbed probably because he was ****faced during filming. Seriously, this cast is a enigmatic smorgasbord of talent.
Watching The Visitor may seem like sitting through a collection of random scenes, but it really is a cohesive film. For all of its insanity and exploding basketballs, there’s an engaging story beneath the surface. But once you think you have it figured out, the film jets in a completely different direction. It’s really tough to explain the actual plot, but there are so many consistently entertaining, bat**** crazy scenes that whether you’re following along or not, it’s a blast. One particularly amazing scene is the aforementioned ice skating rumble. Katy is doing her thing on the ice when all of a sudden a bunch of teenage boys start messing with her. So she starts absolutely wrecking **** in a volley of telepathic beauty. If you can’t enjoy that scene you may want to check your pulse.
Drafthouse Films has salvaged The Visitor from obscurity and they’re releasing it in theaters this month. This is one to see on the big screen, for sure.
