A decade on from 2012 sleeper hit Sinister, Ethan Hawke reunites with director Scott Derrickson and his Doctor Strange co-writer C. Robert Cargill for this adaptation of Joe Hill’s New York Times Best Seller short horror story.
Finney, 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, he starts to get help from an unlikely source.
