What is the black phone about?

The black phone is based on the short story of the same name by American author Joe Hill, which is part of the short collection 20th century ghosts. In the book, a 13-year-old boy is kidnapped by a man named Al and taken to a basement room, where he finds a broken black phone on the wall. When the phone starts ringing, he hears the kidnapper’s former victims now dead. The movie adaptation follows more or less the same premise, but with more dramatic takes on the characters, as well as the plot. In the film, there is a lot of focus on the Grabber, from what we learn from the promos.

In 1978, in a small town in Colorado, Finney Shaw and his sister, Gwen, notice many missing posters depicting teenagers like them. One day, on his way home from school, Finney meets this very scary-looking magician who abducts him and takes him to a dark, dungeon-like basement of an old house. Finney finds a broken black wall phone, but somehow it seems to be ringing at night. Soon, Finney discovers he can talk to Grabber’s first victims via this phone, all of whom are dead (most likely killed by Grabber). These dead children try to help Finney escape, but his captor continues to win. In short, The black phone is an escape story with a mix of paranormal and slasher elements and we can’t wait to see how it plays out!
