Just back from seeing The Black Phone. A really solid horror from a short story by Joe Hill. The child leads are great as is Ethan Hawke. There's a really decent jump scares that made a guy in the cinema cuss loudly which was fun, but it doesn't rely on jump scares in any way. Just a well crafted horror, very enjoyable
I understand why this movie is so divisive, and it really is a filler before the finale Halloween Ends, but I enjoyed this one. Some good kills, very violent and Michael looked great. Nice to see addressing the mob mentality and the inclusion of some of the actors from the original playing the same roles such as Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers and Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett.
