The Quiet Ones by Theresa TalbotIf only someone had listened...
When the supposed suicide of famous Scottish football coach Harry Nugent hits the headlines, the tabloids are filled with tributes to a charitable pillar of the community that gave so much back to sport and to those less fortunate.
But something isnt right. Normally celebrities are queuing up to claim to have had a very special relationship with the deceased, but investigative journalist Oonagh ONeil is getting the distinct impression that people are trying to distance themselves from Harry.
Oonaghs investigation leads her to uncover a heartbreakingly haunting cover-up that chills her to the core... and places her in mortal danger from those willing to protect their sadistic and dark secrets at any cost...
Perfect for fans of Patricia Gibney, Angela Marsons and Cara Hunter.
The Quiet Ones and its True Story
Now this one is a stretch, guys. We all know someone who claims to have experienced a supernatural event, or maybe even you yourself have have seen a ghost. But do ghosts actually exist, or is it something that our very mind manifests? Can we actually be the ones creating the ghost? In doing so it would prove their theory that those unexplained bumps in the night are actually products of the human mind. A psychologist named Dr.
Horror films are often based on creepy events throughout history, but The Quiet Ones is the first to be based on a strange psychological experiment and comes to Blu-ray and DVD August In , a team of Canadian parapsychologists set about attempting to create a ghost in an effort to prove that the supernatural is produced by the human mind through expectation, imagination and visualization. World-renowned expert on poltergeists Dr A. The team communicated with Philip by asking him to tap yes or no on the table, he occasionally even turned lights in the room on and off, made sounds in various corners of the room and levitated the table. Philip answered questions correctly about his fictitious history, but was unable to provide information outside what the team had conceived. He did however give historically consistent details about people and events at the time, although the scientists theorised that this most likely came from their collective unconscious.
Released theatrically on 10 April in the United Kingdom and 25 April in the United States, the film stars Jared Harris as a university professor attempting to prove poltergeists are manifestations of the human psyche and not supernatural beings. The film is loosely based on the Philip experiment , a parapsychology experiment conducted in Toronto. In a student attends the class of Oxford University Professor Coupland, who wishes to prove that the supernatural does not exist. Coupland shows a video of a possessed boy and explains that research will be done to find a cure for this kind of disorder. One of his students, Brian McNeil, is invited to film the experiment process and joins Coupland, his two assistants Krissi and Harry, and their subject Jane Harper, a young woman who generates strange phenomena and has been abandoned.
Horror returns to the big screen this coming weekend with The Quiet Ones , the latest production from legendary company Hammer Films. The Quiet Ones is marketed as being based on actual events, and a similar experiment was indeed conducted back in the s, by a team of Canadian parapsychologists. Led by poltergeist expert Dr. George Owen, the goal of The Philip Experiment was to prove the theory that the human mind could essentially be coaxed into producing paranormal entities, through certain suggestions and visualizations. No doubt one of the more fascinating and interesting experiments ever conducted in the field, the experiment was named after Philip Aylesford; a completely fictional entity that Owen and his team hoped to conjure up, and make contact with. The series of experiments began in Toronto, Canada in , and the first order of business was to create a biography for Mr.
During the course of the investigation, Evey becomes more aggressive, lashing out at the professor and his students. In , mathematician A. G Owen and Psychologist Dr. Joel Whitton wanted to test the theory that humans have the ability to communicate with fictionalized ghosts through the use of imagination. For this experiment, the imagined ghost was named Philip. He was married to a woman named Dorothea, but fell in love with a young Gypsy girl. His Gypsy lover was later accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake.
