The Black Phone Reached 100% Rating On Rotten Tomatoes

“The black phone rotten tomatoes” – Before its premiere next month, a new Blumhouse horror has a fresh 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, with experts praising it for exceeding ‘very high expectations.’ Here is a link to the trailer:


The film, named Black Phone, had Scott Derrickson as its director and present-day horror pillar Jason Blum as its producer. It is based on Joe Hill’s short story of the same name from 2004.

The movie tells the story of a kidnapped youngster, portrayed by Mason Thames, uses a disconnected phone to contact with the previous victims of his captor (Ethan Hawke).

Director Scott Derrickson comes back to his terror origins and collaborate one more time with the leading brand in the category, Blumhouse, to introduce a brand new horror movie.

A vicious killer kidnaps Finney Shaw, a shy but bright 13-year-old kid, imprisoning him under a soundproof cellar where shouting is almost useless. Finney then realizes that he can hear the voice of the prior victims of his abductor, when a disconnected phone hanging on the wall starts ringing. And the victims are dead set on preventing Finney from suffering the same fate as them.

“Starring four-time Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke in the most terrifying role of his career and introducing Mason Thames in his first-ever film role, The Black Phone is produced, directed, and co-written by Scott Derrickson, the writer-director of Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Marvel’s Doctor Strange.”

The picture is produced by Derrickson, Jason Blum and C. Robert Cargill, while Universal and Blumhouse are responsible for its distribution.

The film earned a wave of positive reviews after its international premiere at Fantastic Fest in late 2021, and now boasts a fresh 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating.

The Black Phone, according to Marisa Mirabal of IndieWire, is a ‘sleek, stressful, and violent zeitgeist of a horror film,’ capturing the audience’s sentiments as rapidly as the movie’s villain abducts kids in broad daylight.

The antagonist was described by Eric Vespe from Slash Film as a ‘mask-wearing psycho’, who is portrayed with ‘exceptional relish and devotion’ by Hawke. Vespe also complimented young newcomer Thames, who ‘absolutely knocks it out of the park here, carrying the movie with confidence and a sense of reality that you need in order to make the supernatural stuff hit home’.

Vespe continued to say that Derrickson and his team took a lovely little horror premise from a really short short story, and succeeded in broading it using methods that are really feasible, without making audience feel like filler.

In the meantime, IGN’s Amelia Emberwing believed that the film seemed like the cousin of Derrickson and Cargill’s 2012 horror movie Sinister, which featured Hawke as well. However, Emberwing deduced that somehow it incredibly exceeded great expectations in practically all aspects.

“The writing/directing combination brilliantly showcases the problems of children in the ’70s and the very real monsters of our world,” Emberwing commented, “while the performances of the young actors Mason Thames and Madeleine McGraw push the already tight plot to new heights.”
