Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke, in the most disturbing role of his career, stars in a new psychological thriller from Blumhouse and the director who brought you Sinister and Doctor Strange. Finney, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer (Hawke) 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.

    Goes well with the mainstream “stranger things” theme. Small town, best friends, bicycling… It was not as “horrific” as I had imagined at first. Not very many gruesome scenes until the very end. Some good comic relief provided for by the younger sister and the grabber’s brother. Great acting! Great cast. All in all, I definitely recommend!
  • Good

    Good movie. Definitely feel a prequel coming at the very least. Wouldn’t mind seeing a direct sequel picking up where the first left off also.
  • It’s a good movie

    It’s a rlly good movie one of those ones you can watch over and over without getting bored but it’s just hyped up a lot to be all of that it’s mid they made it seem it’s was traumatic and had jump scares it doesn’t it’s not scary at all that’s all false info…

    My daughter wanted to watch for the second time, this time with me and I went without any idea about the movie and came out loving the movie. Another one to my movie collection.
  • Joe Hill is a hack

    If the studio had spent as much time on making this a watchable movie as they did making iTunes accounts just to give this a ton of five star reviews maybe this would be a positive review. They didn’t. It isn’t.

  • Not bad, not great

    By movies011
    Definitely a movie to watch on iTunes on not in the theaters. Could’ve been better but still would recommend. Should’ve explained why he has mask and more backstory on the killer.
  • Whoah!

    Great casting, directing, writing. Has a serious Sinister vibe as well. Really engaging and keeps you the edge of your seat from start to finish. Enormously rewatching experience.
