Hammer Films and John Pogue‘s The Quiet Ones (2014) will be released in movie theaters this upcoming April 25, 2014 in the US and April 11, 2014 in the UK so here is the latest movie poster. The poster is meant to be creepy but I give it a 6 out 10 score as movie posters go. I really like the story so far and enjoyed the movie trailer so I am really hoping that the finished movie is executed well. The Quiet Ones stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin and Olivia Cooke.
