Hammer Horror's The Quiet Ones has begun filming on the outskirts
The studio's 1970s-set follow-up to The Woman in Black stars Jared Harris as a charismatic Oxford
professor investigating the possibility of creating ghosts from negative human
With his controversial methods
shunned by colleagues, he goes off the grid and sets up shop in a remote country
house to conduct his experiment, accompanied by two students (Erin Richards and
Rory Fleck-Byrne), and psychiatric patient Harper (Olivia Cooke), who has
volunteered to act as the source of the negative energy.
(Snow White and the Huntsman) plays a local cameraman who's hired to
document the experiment, but becomes increasingly troubled by Coupland's
(Harris) ethically dubious approach.
"He doesn't have small ambitions,"
Harris told Digital Spy of his character. "He's out to destroy
God, or the idea of God. By creating [ghosts] from human agency, he gets to
shoot down the idea of there being any sort of divine power at work causing
Director John Pogue - who previously helmed
Quarantine 2: Terminal - went on to explain that while the methods are
extreme, they are by no means implausible and are in fact based on a real
experiment conducted in 1970s Toronto.
"The early '70s were a time where
telekinesis and all these supposedly paranormal ideas were thought to be worthy
of very intellectually rigorous study," Pogue said.
"And gradually when
that didn't pan out, they started closing those departments, and now there are
maybe three or four left in the world."
Needless to say, the experiment
is not likely to end well for many of the people involved, with Pogue employing
a combination of straight narrative and a found-footage element (hence the role
of Claflin's character) to tell his disturbing story.
Ones is currently filming in Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, and is likely
to be released in 2013.
