From the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, here comes a new supernatural horror film about an empty room and a disconnected phone. The Black Phone, written and directed by Scott Derrickson, will premiere in the UK starting June 24, 2022.
Starring Ethan Hawke (Before Sunrise), The Black Phone tells the mystery of a serial killer known as The Grabber. The masked figure kidnaps children and locks them in a room, where there is only one phone that doesn’t work. But for one child, this phone may be his only hope.
The Black Phone, an adaptation of a short story by Stephen King’s son Joe Hill, premiered at Fantastic Fest 2021. The film was critically acclaimed for its faithfulness to the original story, Derrickson’s directing, and Hawke’s stunning performance. Along with the veteran actor, child actors Mason Thames and Madeleine McGraw add to the appeal of the film, as siblings whose lives have been shaken by The Grabber’s acts.

A quiet suburban town in Colorado is buzzing with relentless kidnappings. It’s 1978, and five children have gone missing, taken by an unknown figure. He is nicknamed by people as The Grabber (Ethan Hawke). Gruesome gossip and missing-child posters are enough to frighten the cowardly kid Finney Shaw (Mason Thames), but not his more practical sister, Gwen (Madeleine McGraw).
Until one day, Finney runs into a strange man beside a van. The one-time encounter leads Finney to The Grabber’s hold room, which is filled with only a black phone with a broken wire. Unexpectedly, when he picks it up, Finney hears the voices of other children: the kidnappers’ past victims. As they are trying to help Finney escape, out there in the neighborhood, Gwen starts getting visions that guide her to save her brother.
