After diving into some scientific (at least fringe science) research last night, I decided that it was time to hit Family Video to see what was in stock. While the one movie I was looking for was out again, they did have a couple of flicks that seemed interesting. The first movie up for this Saturday night is the 2014 paranormal flick, The Quiet Ones.
Plot/ A university professor and a team of students conduct an experiment on a young woman, uncovering terrifyingly dark, unexpected forces in the process.
This was an interesting film on many levels and one the acted as a solid scary movie for the kids to enjoy. That being said, it did deliver some creepiness with some solid performances, heavy atmosphere, and an intriguing mix of true stories within the fabric of the fictional foundation. Sure, at PG-13, it did not pack an overwhelming punch, the scripting left some holes in the backstory, and the ending felt rushed (and unsatisfying). In the end, this may not be a perfect movie, but it is an entertaining mix of found footage and and regular cinematography. Yes, it has some flaws, but if you like creepiness, give it a shot.
