It’s so hard to resist a ringing phone.
The Black Phone–a summer horror entry from Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures–this week dropped another tension-filled trailer that reveals even more of the frightening storyline. Check out the video on this page.
The film–directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Doctor Strange) from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill (and based on a 2004 Joe Hill short story)–lands in theaters June 24.
In The Black Phone, 13-year-old Finney Shaw (Mason Thames in his first-ever film role) is abducted by a sadistic killer dubbed The Grabber (Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke) and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of no use.
But, when a disconnected black phone on the wall starts to ring, Finney “discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims,” according to the synopsis. “And they are dead-set on making sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.”
The cast also includes Madeleine McGraw (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Jeremy Davies (Lost), James Ransone (It Chapter Two) and E. Roger Mitchell (Outer Banks).
