Alrighty horror sickos, this one’s for you. I say ‘sickos’ with peace and love by the way. The Black Phone starring creepy king Ethan Hawke is comin’ out on July 21, and I need you to know that this movie looks absolutely, bloodcurdling-ly terrifying.
Now I’m a long-time horror fan, and not much phases me anymore. I’ve grown to understand the conventions of the genre so not to brag or anything, but I’m super brave.
That is, I *was* super brave, until I watched the trailer for The Black Phone.
When the trailer finished I dropped something on our floorboards and the noise made me jump about five feet in the air. This one GOT to me, you guys.
Produced by Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Get Out), The Black Phone has everything. Ethan Hawke in the most terrifying role of his career, a mysterious disconnected black phone that just WON’T STOP RINGING, a dank room with a dirty mattress (and no top sheet, disgoostan’) and some brave and tenacious little kids – both dead and alive. It currently boasts a cool 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes too, so you know it’s gonna be brilliant.
We’re giving you the chance to win tickets to a v spesh pre-release screening of The Black Phone on Monday, July 11, so you can experience the spooks IRL – and before all ya mates too.
