Despite being a lifelong horror fan, I tend to avoid all the recent  so-called PG-13 horror flicks as typically they are horribly filmed. The Quite Ones happens to be one of the exceptions that caught by eye for two reasons:

1. Hammer Film Productions produced it! 
2.Olivia Cooke from Bates Motel is in it!

The Quite Ones is a found-footage flick and centers on a college professor (played by Jared Harris) and a group of students, Brian McNeil (played by Sam Claflin), Krissi (played by Erin Richards) and Harry (played by Rory Fleck-Byrne), who are all trying to prove that supernatural occurrences do not exist. They are especially trying to discredit a video of a possessed boy. Their plan is to run experiments on Jane Harper (played by Olivia Cooke). Of course strange occurrences occur, leading the students to speculate that a  demonic presence called Evey has possessed Jane.

I'm not going to waste my time writing a long review for this. Let me just say that this movie sucks! I'm glad that I bought the film cheap off of eBay because I would be kicking myself right about now for paying full price for this silly film. I would like to point out that I don't care for found-footage movies to begin with, but I came into this movie with an open mind. This is first horror movie that I kept dozing off through. Yes, it was that boring. The plot had potential, but the script was weak and the added use of the found-footage crap didn't help either. I don't recommend buying or renting The Quite Ones. If you want to see it, then wait until it airs on the Syfy channel.
