The Tagline: Something unspeakable is happening to Jane Harper.
The Overview: *** Beware – spoilers are found below ***
The Quiet Ones is based on real events (yeah, right) which took place in 1974 when a college professor along with three of his students studied a young girl named Jane in an effort to explain away her supposed supernatural powers.
Jane has no memory of her past, no family and believes she is possessed by a spirit named Evey. Evey sometimes lives in a doll. Perhaps Jane has telekinetic powers. Maybe it is the thing that possess her. Either way one of them is a firestarter. The professor plans to explain things scientifically and also to get Jane to push the evil possessing her into a doll which they can then destroy. How does he plan to do this? By depriving Jane of sleep.
At this point it doesn’t matter because most of the audience is already snoring.
