Atom User Reviews for The Black Phone
So good it’ll make you wanna slap your momma
The Black Phone exude nostalgia, mystery and crime even though I wasn't born around the 70’s. That is due to the amazing acting performance of all the cast and the stylistic choices by the director. The cinematography and visual helps depict a forlorn era, but relatable as a human experience. The music composition and soundtrack also evokes them even further. If you like reading Stephen King's best mystery/horror books, this movie is for you. Be forewarned, some scenes might be triggering because it depicts child abuse. Don't expect a lot of gore. There are few jump-scares that works to dial up the suspense instead of giving you a cheap scare like most commercial horror movies. This movie should get high recognition, but I feel that it is going to be a sleeper hit since they are competing with other blockbusters. Must see for Stephen King, Stranger Things, Eerie Indiana and other suburban horror/mystery fans.
This movie to me was more horrifying than any ghost haunting movie because it can actually happen.
Must see movie
go see this mo in. it was really good!
10/10 could give it infinite stars. It’s been forever since a movie genuinely got me on the edge of my seat like that. It was amazing, and blew my mind.
It’s creepy. And it’s amazing
A MUST SEE! might look a bit boring but trust me it’s not! Definitely recommend
was so good
I LOVED IT, IT HAD A BIT OF EVERYTHING
I didn’t like the profanity with the children and using Gods name in vain
just don't see it at Bay plaza. 12:15 start time. Movie didn't start until 1:10 due to incompetence.
Reminds me of the lovley bones

Movie was a banger 👍🏻
The movie theater lied about the time it started so all i could see was the ending so im kinda upset about that

I never get got by jump scares but this one got me. If you like stranger things mixed with scary movies go see this
overrated and unbelievable
on the edge of my recliner through the whole 2nd half
A:TLA meets NCMEC (Google the latter IYDK)
A little rushed but still very good. Recommend seeing it
We LOVED this work of Art!
Best movie I’ve seen ever
There are stretches in this movie, which I saw in a crowded preview last night, where you literally could hear a pin drop. The silence on the soundtrack is breathless, the held breaths of the audience deafening.
The Black Phone mixes the supernatural with relatable horrors in ways that will leave you both terrified and hopeful.
