the black phone

This movie was based on a short story by Joe Hill, son of Stephen, and one of my favorite authors. It’s been a while, so I don’t remember how true to the original story the movie was, but I liked it. It was good, but not great. Definitely worth watching, but probably not worth watching twice. I can’t remember if the story got into it, but the movie didn’t say what motivated “The Grabber” to do what he did. Some backstory would have been nice.

My rating: 3.5/5
