Trick Or Treat Studios Dials Up Mask From ‘The Black Phone’

by Thomas Tuna

It’s never too early to plan your Halloween costume.

The Black Phone–one of last year’s horror hits–was symbolized  by the macabre mask worn by Ethan Hawke’s The Grabber, and now Trick or Treat Studios has unveiled a screen-accurate replica that will arrive in plenty of time for October fun ‘n games. Check out the photos of the new mask on this page.

Available now for pre-order for $59.99, the injection-molded mask will ship in September, and will include three switchable mouthpieces. The film’s original mask was designed by Tom Savini and Jason Baker.

The Black Phone--directed by Scott Derrickson from a screenplay by C. Robert Cargill–stars Hawke and Mason Thames as young Finney Shaw–along with Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies, James Ransone and E. Roger Mitchell.

In the horror pic, Shaw is abducted by The Grabber and trapped in a soundproof basement. But, when a disconnected black phone starts to ring, the boy discovers he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And those voices “are dead-set on making sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.”

Given the film’s critical and commercial success, talks have already been held about a possible sequel. Derrickson said he has spoken to Joe Hill, who wrote the short story upon which the movie was based. “Joe pitched me a wonderful idea for a sequel,” the director said. “He’s got a great idea. I really liked it.” So, stay tuned.
