The Black Phone is the latest Blumhouse-produced horror movie starring Ethan Hawke.
The film is based on a book by Joe Hill (who is the son of world renowned horror writer, Stephen King).
The movie is centred on a serial killer called The Grabber (Ethan Hawke) who has been kidnapping and murdering children in the local area. Enter Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by the killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.
Starring four-time Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke in the most terrifying role of his career and introducing Mason Thames in his first ever film role, The Black Phone is produced, directed, and co-written by Scott Derrickson, the writer-director of Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
Also featuring Finny Shaw (Mason Thames), Gwen Shaw (Madeleine McGraw), Terrence Shaw (Jeremy Davies) and Max (James Ransone).
The film’s screenplay is by Derrickson & C.

The film is produced by Derrickson & Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse. Jason Blum, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill are producers on the film, which is executive produced by Ryan Turek and Christopher H. Warner.
