The Quiet Ones

Synopsis: In 1974, Oxford professor Joseph Coupland invites introspective lad Brian McNeil to film his experimental treatment of subject Jane Harper, aided by student assistants Krissi Dalton and Harry Abrams. Jane, a young woman with no memory of the past and repeatedly abandoned by foster families, believes herself possessed by a doll named Evey that gives her telekinetic power. Keeping her awake in an isolated house, Prof. Coupland intends that she puts her evil energy into an actual doll, thereafter destroying it to heal Jane. Amidst strange things happening in the house, Brian feels sorry for Jane and, researching her tattoo, learns an evil secret about Jane's past, and of Prof. Coupland's motivation.

Luckily, Joseph discovered her.

He ruled out

schizophrenia, the usual.

Then he measured her brain waves.

Frequencies off the charts, look.

That's why he chose her.

He took her from the asylum.

Well, Brian, welcome

to the Experiment.

Don't look into her eyes, don't say

anything to her if you can help it.

I can't have the experiment

corrupted by outside influences.

I understand.



Did you think my head

was going to spin off?


Sorry if I disturbed you.

It comes and goes.

Excuse me?

What's inside.

Stop staring at my wrists.


I promised Joseph that

I wouldn't try again,

that I'd give him time.

Is there time?


Yeah, of course.

Can he cure me?

I'm sure he can.

I just want to get better.

Tell Joseph that I'm ready.

Ask him to let me sleep.

I'm begging you.

And, Brian,

thank you.


Seen a ghost?

(STAMMERING) She knew my name.

She probably heard us talking

about you at some point.

She's no fool.

Um, she said to tell you

that she needs sleep

and that she's ready.

Excellent, that is a good sign.

I really don't know if

I can do this, sir.

If you think you're scared,

imagine how she feels, hmm?

Besides, aren't you just

a little bit intrigued?



Hey, you! You over there!

Is he in? Is he in that house?

I am going to go mad if

this sound does not stop!

What's the point, exactly?

Remember, "Cure one

patient, we cure mankind"?

Jane Harper is that patient.

If we can push our subject

to manifest negative energy

in the form of

telekinetic activity,

we can harvest that energy and

remove it, like extracting a tumor.

We cure mental illness for good.

Are you a skeptic, Brian?


Don't you think we can cure Harper?

We can't have non-believers
