Hammer was the British master of horror movies in the '60s and '70s, and now the famed production company is returning to its heyday with The Quiet Ones, about a group of students led by professor Jared Harris who manage to create a ghost. Here's the trailer.

The official synopsis, as per Hammer's website:

Inspired by true events,THE QUIET ONES tells the story of an unorthodox professor (Harris) who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying and evil than they ever could have imagined.


I'm a Hammer fanboy anyways, but being set in the '70s, this looks like a classic, old-school Hammer horror movie, and I love it. You can practically imagine Peter Cushing in the role of the professor. Add a few topless ladies and some bright red corn syrup for blood, and I'd swear it was 40 years old.

If it's as spooky and as beautifully shot as The Woman in Black, I'll be happy. That was the last movie that scared me. Not The Conjuring. Not Sinister. The Woman in Black.
