WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The Black Phone, the horror movie which was filmed in Wilmington this year, will be released in January.

The film is directed by Scott Derrickson and stars Ethan Hawke.

Deadline released the following description of the movie:
“The film is about Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy who 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, 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.”
