'The Black Phone' Movie Review

'The Black Phone' is a touching coming-of-age story masquerading as a horror film. Director Scott Derrickson crafts a winning supernatural movie that is focused more on the characters and less on the horror.

Opening in theaters on June 24th is the new supernatural horror film 'The Black Phone,' from producer Jason Blum ('Us') and director Scott Derrickson ('Doctor Strange'). Based on a short story by Joe Hill, Ethan Hawke stars as The Grabber, a child killer that abducts a 13-year-old boy named Finney (Mason Thames), who begins to receive calls on a disconnected phone from the killer's previous victims.
