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.

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.

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.
