The Black Phone Review
The Black Phone debuts in theaters on Feb. 2, 2022. Spoiler-free review by Amelia Emberwing.
The Black Phone, C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson’s clear sister to Sinister, has managed to exceed extremely high expectations in nearly every aspect. The writing/directing team puts personal traumas on full display while expertly showcasing the complications of childhood in the ’70s and the very real monsters of our world, while the performances of the child actors Mason Thames and Madeleine McGraw take the already tight story to new heights.
