From the author-director behind Scary and Doctor Strange comes a chilling new horror movie that reminds you to never talk to strangers again. Scott Derrickson returns to his terror roots with The black phone, who plays Ethan Hawke as a masked killer who kidnaps children by posing as a clumsy magician. In his first film role ever, Mason Thames plays a 13-year-old boy who falls victim to the criminal’s stray plan.
Produced by horror heavyweight Blumhouse Productions and co-written by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, The black phone is based on Joe Hill’s award-winning short story from his New York Times best selling Ghosts from the 20th Century. See the trailer for the spine in the following:
According to Universal Pictures’ official press release, the prerequisite for The black phone is as follows: “Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, being abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement, where screams are of little use. When an interrupted phone on the wall starts ringing, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead to secure to what happened to them does not happen to Finney. In addition to Hawke and the Thames, the rest of the cast includes Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies and Scary‘s own James Ransone.
While The black phone seems to be the perfect movie choice for a Halloween horror, we actually have to wait a few months longer to see it for ourselves. The black phone arrives in theaters on February 4, 2022.
