They say that truth is stranger than fiction, which may be why some of Hollywood's most unbelievable films are those that claim to be based on a true story. But no matter how unlikely the plot of the upcoming, supposedly true horror film "The Quiet Ones" is, there's at least one thing about it that we're sure is true: Sam Claflin is going to be totally rad in it.
After all, keeping it real is what he does best.
Claflin, of course, is an up and coming British star who became an overnight international sensation thanks to his role in last year's mega blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean." And his star is set to rise even more this summer thanks to his turn as Prince Charming (okay, technically Prince William) in the Kristen Stewart actioner "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Now, though, he's digging his toes into the world of pseudo-reality horror. And, according to The Hollywood Reporter, this one is a doozy: Supposedly inspired by true events, the movie tells the tale of an "unorthodox but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy."
That doesn't sound quite like any college course we ever took, but just because Claflin is apparently teaching at the University of WTF won't keep us from hitting the theaters to check it out, especially since his co-star is "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" baddie Jared Harris. Frankly, we'd be happy to check those two out in pretty much anything at all.
And that's really a true story.
