‘The Black Phone’ Will Reunite Ethan Hawke With ‘Sinister’ Director Scott Derrickson

Ethan Hawke is reuniting with his Sinister director Scott Derrickson for the upcoming Blumhouse horror movie The Black Phone. The film is based on a short story by Joe Hill in which a boy is kidnapped and locked away in a basement with a disconnected phone that suddenly starts to ring. It was recently reported that Jeremy Davies would be joining the cast as well, and I theorized that Davies would be playing the kidnapper since he kind of has the market cornered on playing intense, weird guys.

The Six Weeks of Halloween: Speed Round

It’s tradition around these parts to finish off the Six Weeks of Halloween with a Speed Round of brief thoughts on films I watched for the marathon, but haven’t otherwise covered. Maybe it didn’t fit with a given week’s theme. Perhaps I just don’t have a lot to say about it. Or it may be that I have too much to say about it and just don’t have the time or inclination to organize my thoughts. As of this writing, I have seen 69 horror (or horror-adjacent) movies during this Halloween season. Th...

Creepshow Animated Special

I was very happy to see that this was going to get released this week — as I wrote in my other post about Creepshow, it’s what reminded me to go back and watch the rest of the series. This was quite good, especially the first story which is by Stephen King, and deliciously macabre — the second tale, by his son Joe Hill, gets good by the end, but the constant Twitter chatter by the main character annoyed me a bit. Also, this is more done as motion comics than purely animated, but it didn’t ...
