“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.

I am really sorry to say that The Mandalorian has turned into Halo for me. Season three has been a slog for me and I am sad to report that it has been over a month since I have watched an episode of Din DJarin and Grogu traversing the universe. And the saddest part? I…

A Taylor Swift Concert, Or 1 Million Dollars? Easy Answer.

Call me crazy. Call me an idiot. Call me moronic. You can call me whatever you want, but most importantly, call me a Swiftie. Last week John Rich put out this hypothetical tweet out there talking about the price of reselling Taylor Swift tickets. I immediately replied saying that the Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert…

Ranking The “Scream” Movies

No. 6Scream 3 (2000) Horror movie franchises tend to jump the shark at some point. Scream 3 (2000) pokes fun at this nature…but also falls into the same trap itself. The setting for Scream 3 is right up my alley. It is set on the set of a horror movie. It is on the set…
