Once upon a time, Hammer Films was the studio behind seemingly every great horror movie that came out of England. 'The Quiet Ones' is the latest film to be released under that resurrected brand, and the newest trailer for the film promises a movie that seems to walk hand-in-hand with the studios' classics. Well, at least in spirit. We'll have to see how the whole "quality" thing works out.
With the success of this year's 'The Woman in Black,' Hammer Films is officially back on the map. The studio that pushed the boundaries of horror back in the day (namely, the '50s through the '70s) has been dormant for awhile, but their return to the scene is a reason for much celebration amongst horror buffs. Now, Hammer not only has their own YouTube channel, but they have exclusive content to premiere on it! How about a sneak peek at their next release, 'The Quiet Ones'?
Young adult fiction is the latest craze in Hollywood and studios are doing everything they can to lock up as many properties as humanly possible that even hint at being successful with children. And now two actors from two very different, and popular, television shows, have been cast in the latest hot property.
Following the success of their spooky ghost story 'The Woman in Black' starring Daniel Radcliffe (and failure of their 'Let the Right One In' remake 'Let Me In'), British studio Hammer Films has signed actor Jared Harris ('Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' 'Mad Men') for their latest film, 'The Quiet Ones.'
