The makers of the The Woman in Black, the highest-grossing British horror film of the past 20 years, have completed filming its follow up.

The Quiet Ones was filmed at The Bodleian Library and Merton College in Oxford by Hammer Films.

It follows an Oxford professor as he creates a poltergeist through a series of dangerous experiments.

Jared Harris, who takes the lead role, described the experience of filming at the college as "amazing".

The actor, who starred in Mad Men and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, added: "Normally you'd have to peer in here or bribe the porters."

The film also features Sam Claflin from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and the BBC's White Heat.

Producer Ben Holden said: "Oxford sets up the traditions and the scope of the magnitude of what these characters are trying to do."

The Quiet Ones wrapped filming on 16 July.

Hammer was founded in 1934 and produced films until the 1980s, including Dracula and One Million Years B.C.

It returned to film production in 2010 with Let Me In, a remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In.
