The Quiet Ones Review:

This new possession film, by the director of Quarantine 2, is another forgettable one in the ever-growing list of new releases about possession movies (The Last Exorcism, The Devil Inside, The Possession, etc.)

The Quiet Ones is only unusual in that it combines classic-filming type, for most of the story aspect, and found footage type for all of the possession and horror scenes. This is obviously done so as to render the possession scenes more scary by using poor quality pictures (which always leaves more space to imagination and therefore makes things scarier) while keeping the story part watchable. The movie does get quite creepy at times, but nothing more than a few well-timed jumps scares.

The pseudo-scientific story is not bad either, and the realism of the scientific approach towards possession is quite interesting (reminding The Exorcism of Emily Rose in some ways). Unfortunately, the movie simply fails at captivating its audience. The moments between the horror scenes feel too long and makes that movie a lot less good than it could have been…
