About the movie

Finney Shaw, 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, 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.

📣 Top user review: I don't understand the depravity of the world. Nor do I understand why anyone would want to view depravity of this nature. I find it contradictory that our society spends so much time making and watching Super Hero films, then turns around and produces sick trash like this. But the glorification of inhuman atrocities definitely seems to be a business. The sad aspect is that Depravity Art like this inevitably leads to real life occurrences. Which makes everyone involved in the production of films like this complicit in crimes against humanity. Hollywood likes to pretend it cares about children. The production and popularity of films like this proves that it does not. Shame on you, Hollywood!

A great time for a thrill-seeker. I’d categorize this movie more so a thriller vs horror but there are a couple of “jump scares”. Appreciate some injected humor to break some tension.

It’s a decent film, wouldn’t watch it again though only because I know what’s coming so I’m not really full of anticipation anymore. the plot was alright but I didn’t really find it scary

So glad I was able to make it to theaters to see this one. Mason Thames is a brilliant child actor and I’m looking forward to seeing more of his work. I appreciated that aspects of the film aren’t explained, they’re just there. It really opens the door to audience interpretation, something I think only benefits this film. Ethan Hawke does phenomenal per usual as The Grabber, I only wished we had seen a bit more of him.

Always love seeing Ethan Hawke in this type of horror/thriller! Everyone was great in this, and the atmosphere was appropriately frightening. The plot and the characters kept me on my toes and overall very happy with how I spent my afternoon and would happily see it again! Glad to see a couple of potential references to sinister (in addition to the casting) as well, love that movie dearly

Overall I thought this was a good watch for the night. Based off a short story I don’t remember any movie like this one so seems like an original storyline. I only gave this a 6 though because I felt there were some parts that were just too convenient for the movie, like that wouldn’t happen in real life.

Amazing movie. Everything was on point; the script, the acting and the scare jumps. A great horror movie.

A slow and brutal build-up to a very cool and truly satisfying ending.
