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.
Hit the jump to watch the UK trailer. The film also stars Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke, and Erin Richards. The Quiet Ones opens in theaters on April 11, 2014.

Here’s a synopsis for The Quiet Ones:
Inspired by true events, THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox professor (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 negative human 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.
