EURONEWS.COMGuaranteed retro chills for new British horror movie ‘The Quiet Ones’.

Set in 1974, it tells the story of an Oxford University professor with highly unorthodox methods, who brings together a team of students to document his attempt to create a poltergeist.

The cast hit the red carpet in London for the world premiere.

Starring British actors Jared Harris, Sam Claflin and Olivia Cooke, the film was produced by legendary Brit-horror studio Hammer, which has been making scary movies since the fifties, including Frankenstein and Dracula.

Simon Oakes, the President and CEO of Hammer Films, explained the plot: “The film is about two things. Mainly it’s about control and power and relationships, and it’s about an experiment that goes wrong and it’s about scares. So it’s a proper psychological horror film,” he said.

The role of Professor Joseph Copeland is played by Jared Harris, who praised the spirit of the movie: “I really liked that it was sort of one of those old fashioned type of supernatural thrillers where you’re allowed to really take your time in developing the story and the characters and they make you wait for it,” said the actor.

Rising British actor Sam Claflin, who plays one of the students, said. “I’m sort of the outsider, the guy that’s sort of brought into the group purely to document the experiment but yeah, he sort of becomes part of the family.”

Olivia Cooke’s character is a young psychiatric patient pushed to the edge of sanity during the experiment. “She’s been in Joseph’s (Dr. Joseph Copeland) care for about six months and she believes, herself, that this is her last chance and if she’s not cured then she will eventually take her life,” said Cooke.

Based on real events that occured in Toronto in the 1970s, the film offers all the elements of a classic horror movie – which is precisely what one reviewer deplored, saying there’s little here that’s exactly new or fresh.

‘The Quiet Ones’ is on worldwide release from this month.

Legendary horror studio Hammer have teamed up with Lionsgate for the chilling film The Quiet Ones, out on Thursday April 10th.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is the story of single minded Oxford Professor Coupland (Jared Harris) who takes his best students off the grid and embarks on a dangerous experiment to create a poltergeist. His theory is that paranormal activity is caused by negative human energy and conducts a series of tests on a disturbed young patient, Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke). Needless to say, things take a turn for the terrifying…

We caught up with down to earth rising star Olivia Cooke for an intimate roundtable interview ahead of the films world premiere to discuss her part in The Quiet Ones and her future projects including the hit TV show, Bates Motel.

HOLLYWOODREPORTERThe cable network’s flagship drama, which saw a time slot shuffle in its sophomore return, will be back again in 2015.

A&E will check back into Bates Motel. The cable network has renewed the dark drama for a third season.

“The incredible writing team and talented ‘Bates Motel’ cast has made this series one of the most compelling original dramas on television,” said network executive vice president and general manager David McKillop. “The brilliant twists and turns of the past two seasons keep its loyal fan base coming back for more. We are so proud of the show.”
Bates Motel’s sophomore run opened in the 9 p.m. hour of Monday nights before the shuffling of Those Who Kill off to Lifetime Movie Network returned it to its 10 p.m. time slot. With live-plus-7 ratings now available for the March 3 premiere, the series has earned 4.6 million viewers and 2.6 million adults 18-49. It remains the network’s top drama to date in the key demo.
The Psycho prequel joins a scripted roster that also includes Longmire. The network last year canceled The Glades — its first and previously longest-running original drama series — after its fourth season. Word of a renewal comes as little surprise.
A&E has been continuing its push into original scripted fare but hit a bump with Those Who Kill. The Chloe Sevigny drama, paired with Bates, failed to draw an audience and was pulled after the series lost half of its viewership in week two. (A&E eventually moved the series to sibling network LMN.)
Produced by Universal Television for A&E Network, with Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin serving as executive producers for Carlton Cuse Productions and Kerry Ehrin Productions respectively, Bates Motel will return in 2015. The current season is scheduled to run through May 5.

Sam Claflin & Olivia Cooke talk new film The Quiet Ones, snogging ghosts and show us their best scary whispers

Earlier this week we sat down for a chat about all things spooky with the stars of new horror flick The Quiet Ones, Sam Claflin (of The Hunger Games fame) and Olivia Cooke.

Rather than get them to tell you what the movie is all about in a normal fashion, however, we thought it would be fun for them to describe the plot in their scariest whispers.

We also got them to play snog, marry, avoid with famous ghosts, reveal if they were scared they’d ACTUALLY create a poltergeist while filming (which is what the characters do) and give us their best terrified faces.

VIRGINMEDIA.COMOlivia Cooke and her ‘Ouija’ co-stars had to send a set assistant to check out an empty room as they were convinced they had heard a ghost.

Olivia Cooke was convinced she heard a ghost while filming ‘Ouija’.

The British actress admits she and her castmates were so nervous about the unexplained noises, they asked a set assistant to go and check an empty room.

She said: “Just before Christmas we were in a bedroom filming and there was noise going on upstairs. We sent a PA to go up and ask whoever was up there, could you just hold the work? She went up and then came back down and told us there was no-one up there!”

As well as shooting ‘Ouija’, ‘The Bates Motel’ actress is currently promoting horror/thriller ‘The Quiet Ones’ – which also stared Sam Claflin and Jared Harris – and can be seen in sci-fi ‘The Signal’ later this year, but she insists she isn’t only drawn to supernatural stories.

She said: “I think I’m drawn to the characters more so I think I’m definitely moving away from horror. ‘The Signal’ was sci-fi so that was more of a branch out, but I love thriller, I love sci-fi and I’d love to explore that more but I think I’m just open to anything.”

And the actress admitted to finding filming ‘The Quiet Ones’ very different to her role as Emma in American series ‘The Bates Motel.’

She told BANG Showbiz: “There’s a lot of me crying in it, so I was emotionally drained. With the stunts and when I was attacking people I had like bruises and cuts all over me and I knew I had worked hard that day.

“I didn’t really prepare myself for the intense scary scenes, I kind of just threw myself into it. I just went in to it expecting nothing and tried to react off what the surroundings were. When you read a script it’s always so different to what you actually do so I just went in open to everything.”

‘The Quiet Ones’ opens in cinemas on April 10th.
