Jason's Review of The Black Phone 2021 ★★★★


Watched Jun 27, 2022


This review may contain spoilers.

A bleak and disturbing horror film that is somehow simultaneously a rousing, emotionally gratifying, edge-of-your-seat crowd pleaser. Also, not surprising that it’s just a real good yarn, being based on a story by the son of Stephen King. It was gunning for a solid 4.5/5 but it seemed to wrap itself up far too quickly and cleanly for me. After such a great buildup I wanted more of a climax. But I really loved it otherwise, and that might not bother me on subsequent viewings (of which there definitely will be some).
