'The Black Phone' Trailer: Take Your First Look at Scott Derrickson's Eerie Joe Hill Adaptation

Described as a disturbing and chilling childhood horror by Dark Universe’s Jacob Harper (read review here), director Scott Derrickson‘s new thriller The Black Phone has given audiences a first look at its eerie offerings today with the arrival of the film’s trailer via Universal Pictures.

You can check out the official trailer for The Black Phone below.

An Adaptation of Joe Hill’s short story by the same name, Derrickson’s horror thriller The Black Phone stars Mason Thames as:

Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer 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.

The film’s screenplay is by Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange, Sinister). The film is produced by Derrickson and Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse. Jason Blum, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill are producers on the film.

The film also stars Ethan Hawke, who plays a child killer named The Grabber, Jeremy Davies as Finney’s father, Madeleine McGraw as Finney’s sister, and James Ransone as a character named Max.
