Although there are some script holes and unanswered questions, and yes, some of the unavoidable horror tropes, at the end of the day, there's nothing quiet about The Quiet Ones. It screams frightening terror.

A solid, entertaining effort that suggests the freshly-risen corpse of Hammer Studios won't be returning to the crypt any time soon.

This one floats right through the eyes, past the brain, and out the other side with little more than a whiff on the old neurons.

"The Quiet Ones" is elegant genre work, and Harris' performance is delightful - over the top, but delightful - his annunciation alone worth the price of admission.
