Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Quiet Ones

Derivative horror yarn with some fine acting (Harris oozing gravitas in every scene) and a decent plot. Its a shame then that the director has virtually no sense of how to convey dread and suspense. He resorts to the most boring tropes of LOUD and SUDDEN sounds and found footage stylings. A missed opportunity for sure.
