Scott Derrickson Integrated Some Of His Upbringing In The Black Phone

Filmmaker Scott Derrickson returns to his hit horror genre as a director with The Black Phone. A film based on the short story written by Joe Hill

The Synopsis 

Finney Shaw (Mason Thames, “Evel”), a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.

I was a part of the round table with Scott Derrickson to talk about The Black Phone. He opened up about how personal this film is to his growing up environment. As well as some differences from the short film to this full length feature, working with kids in scenes that can be demanding. Derrickson also speaks about a particular scene he was asked to remove, but he kept. In addition to clarifying a false headline to why he left Doctor Strange and more!

The Black Phone is available in theaters June 24, 2022
