THE BLACK PHONE Trailer & Release Date Revealed!

Filmmaker Scott Derrickson (SINISTER, THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) returns to his genre roots and partners up again with Blumhouse for the new horror thriller, THE BLACK PHONE.

Now fresh from its world premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin TX and subsequent rave reviews, the Trailer has dropped…

Finney Shaw (Mason Thames), a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer (Ethan Hawke) 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 Oscarnominee Hawke (THE PURGE, SINISTER) in the most terrifying role of his career and introducing Thames in his first ever feature-film, THE BLACK PHONE is produced and directed by Derrickson and co-written with his writing partner on SINISTER and DOCTOR STRANGE, C. Robert Cargill, based on a short story by author Joe Hill (HORNS).

THE BLACK PHONE is dated for January 27 in Aussie cinemas.
