Sam Claflin made a big splash in The Hunger Games:Catching Fire and decided to shift gears into the horror genre to star in the paranormal-themed flick The Quiet Ones.
Sam recently chatted with ET at the film's Hollywood premiere and revealed his feeling that moviegoers will leave the theaters thinking about the film's paranormal themes. "It's rare to see a horror movie that leaves you thinking. ...Is the supernatural something that we conjure up in our own mind, or is it something else?"
The new scare-fest, from the producers of Let Me In and The Woman in Black, stars Claflin, 27, as a university student recruited by his professor, Mad Men star Jared Harris, to to explore the dark energy that an alluring but dangerously disturbed young woman, Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel, may possess.
The secret experiment soon begins to unravel, and the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with the terrifying reality that they've triggered an unspeakable force with incredibly dangerous power. "I was still jumping out of my seat," Claflin admitted upon seeing the film despite starring in it.
The Quiet Ones, in theaters now, also stars Erin Richards and Rory Fleck-Byrne and is directed by John Pogue.
