The Ethan Hawke movies is a poster that reveals Ethan Hawke as Masked Killer The Grabber.
The picture that will be behind your eyelids as you fall asleep tonight has just been published by Blumhouse Productions. You simply know things aren’t going to work out for some folks when you look at the new The Black Phone poster. For a few nights, you will sleep with the night light on. We’ll never be able to look at Ethan Hawke without remembering him as the frightening and twisted Grabber. I’ve heard rumors about his ‘no villains rule,’ but he’s obviously broken it.
“The Black Phone follows a kidnapped youngster who is imprisoned in a cellar smeared with the blood of a half-dozen dead children. He has an ancient telephone in the basement with him, which has been long ago unplugged but still rings at night with calls from the dead.” The Black Phone, a Blumhouse horror film starring Ethan Hawke, terrifies CinemaCon attendees.
The Black Phone, according to Jason Blum “Is without a doubt one of the creepiest films we’ve ever made. Scott considers it to be his greatest film. Scott’s music is one of my favorites… Every one of his films is one of my favorites. I enjoyed Sinister, and it is without a doubt one of his finest films. It’s possible that this is the greatest film he’s ever produced.”
The film also includes James Ransone, Jeremy Davies, Mason Thames, and Madeleine McGraw, and it stars Ethan Hawke as the cruel murderer ‘The Grabber.’ Hawke will reunite with Scott Derrickson, the director of Sinister. With his novella of the same name, Joe Hill has supplied the source material. Joe Hill has been hitting it out of the park with his unique blend of horror and humour. Locke & Key, on the other hand, is a film that appeals to a younger audience. The graphic book and teleplay would not make you want to sit down with the kids and watch a television show. His style of modern horror is distinct, and filmmakers are eager to work with him.
With films like Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge, Split, Get Out, Happy Death Day, Halloween, Us, and The Invisible Man, Blumhouse is a natural match. Blumhouse’s business strategy of working with a modest budget, allowing its filmmakers artistic leeway, and releasing under larger studio umbrellas isn’t new. You’ve seen me, a la Sharknado, spread the word about the micro-budget treasures. Their worldwide success in their efforts is what distinguishes them. The low-budget Blumhouse concept started with the $15,000 picture Paranormal Activity, which earned over $193 million worldwide. Insidious, which earned over $99 million globally on a $1.5 million budget, and Sinister, which grossed over $87 million worldwide on a $3 million budget, were both produced by Blumhouse.
It gives you hope that independent cinema will not be limited to a small group of people. When companies like Blumhouse create films that attract talent by encouraging innovative and unique stories and giving filmmakers the freedom to tell their stories without the influence of focus groups and “suggestions” from higher ups, it proves to future investors that independent films can be profitable. We have till January 28th, 2022 to buy or ask Santa for the nightlight. It’ll come in handy.
