A terrifying new serial killer horror has been rated near perfect scores on Rotten Tomatoes.
‘The Black Phone’ stars Ethan Hawke and is based on a 2004 story written by Joe Hill, the son of horror legend, Stephen King.
It’s the tale of a 13-year-old named Finney Shaw and how he gets abducted by a masked kidnapper known as the Grabber, who has famously been kidnapping and killing children in the area.
