The Black Phone is a 2021 American supernatural horror film directed by Scott Derrickson and produced by Jason Blum. Written by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, it is an adaptation of the 2004 short story of the same name by Joe Hill. The film stars Mason Thames as an abducted child who can communicate with the past victims of his kidnapper, portrayed by Ethan Hawke.
In January 2020, Derrickson announced his departure from directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences with Marvel Studios. As a result, he decided to partner with Cargill on The Black Phone. The feature film was announced in October 2020, and filming began in February 2021. Principal photography took place for two months in North Carolina.

Finney Shaw is a shy but clever 13-year-old boy who’s being held in a soundproof basement by a sadistic, masked killer. When a disconnected phone on the wall starts to ring, he soon discovers that he can hear the voices of the murderer’s previous victims — and they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.
