“After being abducted by a child killer and locked in a soundproof basement, a 13-year-old boy starts receiving calls on a disconnected phone from the killer’s previous victims.”

Director: Scott Derrickson
Writers: Scott Derrickson, C. Robert Cargill, Joe Hill (Based On Short Story)
Staring: Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Davies, James Ransome
Release Date: June 24, 2022

I have no idea what to expect from The Black Phone (2022), but my excitement is through the roof. I feel like Stefan from SNL when I say, this movie has EVERYTHING. It has a famous actor, it has a creepy mask, it has a Pennywise The Clown but in real human body character, it has supernatural scares and off-the-wall visuals. The Black Phone had buzz on it when its first trailer dropped last year, but now, it has reached a whole new level.

Ethan Hawke is on a ride. He is grabbing the attention of the masses. He is in The Northman (2022)…WHICH I REALLY WANT TO SEE BUT ALL THE THEATERS AROUND ME ARE CLOSED! He is Arthuer Harrow in Moon Knight and is going to be staring in Knives Out 2 later this year. Hawke is having a little bit of renascence and I like it.

The Black Phone is written by Joe Hill…who is the son of Stephen King and Tabitha King. An accredited writer himself, if he has the blend of supernatural and realism like what was in The Outsider on HBO…I am all for it.

Scott Derrickson is the director, and he has a history of making some good horror movies. The Exorcism Of Emily Rose (2005) is a quality flick and Sinister (2012) was legit scary. He got his chance to direct a Marvel movie with Doctor Strange (2016), which was entertaining till the ending. This is his first major release since then, and after The Black Phone, he has three projects in the works.

The Black Phone is released into theaters on June 24, 2022.
