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 Black Phone features a cast that includes Ethan Hawke (Sinister), James Ransone (It Chapter Two), Mason Thames (For All Mankind), Madeleine McGraw (Toy Story 4) and Jeremy Davies (Saving Private Ryan).
The Black Phone arrives in cinemas on February 4th.
