There is only one clue that their captors always leave behind, which is a black ball in the location where they went missing. Once home from school, Finney Shaw was tricked by a magician and then kidnapped. He was put in a black car and locked in a soundproof basement. In the room there was only an old black phone stuck to the wall with long broken wires and an old bed.

The amazing thing is that the phone can ring and every time Finney picks up the receiver there will be a young boy’s voice guiding him away from his cruel kidnapper.

Review of the movie The Black Phone

The supernatural aspect of dead children talking to Finney over the phone sounds bland, but is well done through weird special effects and editing. Their ragged voices combined with a bloody presentation of what “The Grabber” did to them in their final hours is really nerve-wracking.

Not only that, the film gives viewers a nostalgic American scene in the 70s that makes the audience feel like they are immersed in old times in a realistic, vivid way without being forced. To build on this timeframe, Brett Jutkiewicz added texture to the film’s story using classic lighting and grainy cinematography. The sound in the film is also very well invested, creating a tense atmosphere that is gradually pushed up throughout the film.

Although it does not contain many scary scares like demonic movies except for a few sudden appearances of the killer, The Black Phone is not bad when it comes to giving viewers a long-lasting tension. Following the protagonist’s every move while using a cordless phone, Finney is able to contact the five boys who died at the hands of the kidnapper The Grabber, each offering tips from his own experience. They were in the basement, helping Finney with clues, puzzles, and objects they discovered during their stay.

If you are a horror movie enthusiast, Salenhanh thinks that The Black Phone is a movie worth watching, surely you will not be disappointed when it hits theaters on June 24 to watch this movie.
