We only got a trailer for new Scream film, and here’s another horror trailer with a ringing phone it’s perfectly timed for a spooky season (even if the film itself doesn’t come out until next year): Black phone. The latest is from Scott Derrickson, whose greatest credit 2016 Dr. Strange but whose screaming abilities have also been extensively shown elsewhere in his filmography, including Emily Rose’s exorcism,, Deliver us from evil, i Ominous. This last title stands out in particular because Black phone also stars Ominous‘s Ethan Hawke– although he seems to play a much different kind of character here. Check it out!
Here is the official description Black phone, in case that trailer hasn’t scared you enough already: “Finney Shaw, a shy but smart 13-year-old boy, is kidnapped by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of no use. When the disconnected phone on the wall starts ringing, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killers of previous victims. And they’re dead on making sure Finney doesn’t happen to what happened to them. ”
We’ve seen a lot of movies about kidnappers who kidnap children, but usually the story is told from the point of view of terrified parents or determined cops – not the young victim and his apparently psychic classmate, and certainly not with that element of “previous victims returning from the dead to help break some ass from a serial killer.”
Along with Hawke, it’s Mason Thames who made his film debut as Finney Shaw; the rest of the cast consists of James Ransone, Jeremy Davies, E. Roger Mitchell and Madeline McGraw. Directed by Derrickson, Black phone co-authored by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange, Sinister) and is based on a short story by Joe Hill (Locke & Key, Creeping, Horns).
Black phone coming to theaters on February 4th.
