The first reviews of the new Ethan Hawke thriller come to light


Published on:

“Moon Knight”, “The Northman”… Ethan Hawke is back and in the best way; And if there were any doubts, now comes his great performance in the terrifying thriller “The Black Phone”.

With a release date scheduled for June 24 in the United States, the film directed by Scott Derrickson, behind contemporary horror classics such as “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” and “Sinister”, has already been screened at some festivals and in front of the specialized press, who gave their opinion on this film that seems to be a real gem worth seeing.

“I just saw The Black Phone, which I liked more as a compelling, mysterious supernatural thriller than a terrifying horror movie. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high, but in the end I was a bit disappointed with how it all came together. It’s a great ride though,” said Gizmodo’s Germain Lussier.

“The Black Phone was wonderful! An exciting, tense, disturbing and harrowing horror film. I love this movie! Scott Derrickson brought the best parts of the Joe Hill story to life and expanded them into something unique and wildly entertaining. I loved it!” was the opinion of Screen Rant’s Shawn DePasquale.

“I really loved #TheBlackPhone, a tense 1970s kidnapping thriller featuring a super creepy performance from Ethan Hawke. Prepare to squirm on his seat and jump several times. It’s also a good story about finding your confidence as a kid. But as a father, he is an absolute disaster!” wrote Erik Davis of Rotten Tomatoes.

“I saw #TheBlackPhone at Beyond Fest and I can confirm that it is a great horror movie full of suspense. Ethan Hawke delivers a terrifying performance, but Mason Thames and Madeline McGraw steal the show. They are great and deliver the products. Plus a solid soundtrack,” added Courtney Howard of Variety.

“The Black Phone” is based on Joe Hill’s short story about a man who poses as a professional magician to kidnap and murder children in a conservative American town. During the kidnapping, he locks his victims in a room with an old black telephone and, when approaching them, he does so with an evil mask that hides his true face.
