With elements of the supernatural, The Black Phone is set in Denver in 1978 and follows a serial child abductor nicknamed “The Grabber”.

Siblings Finney and Gwen Blake live in the area and knew one of the boys, Bruce, who was abducted by the Grabber. Then the Grabber abducts Robin, Finney's friend at school. And before long, Finney is also taken.

Why Was The Black Phone Delayed?

There are a couple of reasons why The Black Phone was delayed. The first was that Scott Derrickson really wanted to direct it but was already committed to Marvel Studios. His co-writer agreed to wait until he became available to start work on the film.

That happened in January 2020 and from there on it was all systems go. Casting was completed in early 2021 and filming began soon after. Post-production was completed by December 2021.

The second reason The Black Phone was delayed was because of how successful it was in the previews. Blumhouse delayed it from its initial January 2022 release to June 2022 because of how great the early reactions were. They knew it would get a bigger audience if they gave it a summer release date.
