    While the movie is not without its charms, there's nothing indicating that it's actually a Hammer movie.

    Worth making a little noise about if you’re a horror fan. Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Aside from a few cheap but effective shocks and jumps, there's nothing here that horror fans haven't seen in better recent films like "The Conjuring." Not to mention all of those wonderful Hammer films from the '50s and '60s.

    If you look at a horror movie’s prime directive to be to scare the viewer, there’s no denying that, at times, The Quiet Ones got me. Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    If the stock concessions made to genre cliché by The Woman in Black can be charitably viewed as deliberate tips of the hat to the heyday of Hammer Films, then John Pogue's period-set exorcism yarn The Quiet Ones more interestingly upends those tropes.

    The arrestingly fierce Cooke, in particular, is surely a star in the making.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Paul Bradshaw

    There’s creepy dolls, cameras tipped on their side, blasts of white noise and a horny teenage Scooby gang helping Jared Harris’ Oxford prof stir up a poltergeist in the mind of a moody emo girl (Olivia Cooke).

    Messier than recent Hammer output, but effectively chilling when it’s not making us feel the noize.

    Empire Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    all the retro production design in the world can’t disguise the sheer familiarity of the film’s paranormal parlor tricks.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Harris’ wondrous arrogance as Coupland nearly justifies The Quiet Ones, because he’s so absolutely certain of a methodology that’s so absolutely incoherent.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    It's mostly full of schlock.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    There are nice touches... Yet many of the movie’s more nominally horrific elements are too familiar.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephen Dalton

    The film relies on high production values and sense-battering shock tactics to make up for wooden performances and an illogical, silly script. As an exercise in retro pastiche, it impresses. But as a postmodern genre reinvention, it fails to deliver.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Charles Gant

    The 1970s setting offers a retro feel that should strike appealing chords for fans of old-school horror, but there’s little here that’s exactly new or fresh.

    Variety Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    There are a couple of decent jumps and a few giggles, but nothing armrest-clenchingly scary about The Quiet Ones.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s a load of horrific hooey.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Kiva Reardon

    With its latest, The Quiet Ones, the company continues a tired trend, choosing the trite over the terrifying. The stale tone is struck from the outset with four simple words: “Inspired by actual events.”

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Despite its outstanding performances, The Quiet Ones remains the very thing its protagonist scoffs at: a pointless story about “evil begetting evil for the sake of evil.” Evil can be defeated, but emptiness always prevails.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    This demonic possession story is at times so lame it makes the last "Paranormal Activity" flick look like a masterpiece.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It's a junky, unscary genre piece with a misleading title, because director and co-writer John Pogue jacks up the decibels so often to manufacture frights that you fear a punctured eardrum more than anything else.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    The Quiet Ones simply has nothing to say.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Veteran screenwriter John Pogue, in his second directorial outing, tries repeatedly and mostly unsuccessfully to jolt his audience by amping up the abundant sound effects to ear-shattering levels.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    There’s no sense of trepidation in The Quiet Ones, because suspense requires a cogent storyline to either create or defy the viewer’s expectations. This lack of plausible narrative is either the result of lazy filmmaking or shortcut editing. Either way, you lose.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Ah, wait — it’s an ancient Sumerian curse. That seems like poppycock to everyone but this film’s four screenwriters, who also unfortunately go for crashes and yelling instead of a frightening story.
