Horror movies like X, You Won’t Be Alone, and Scream gave fans plenty to enjoy in 2022. Of course, the year still has a lot of highly anticipated horror releases on the way. But perhaps one of the most intriguing films is The Black Phone from director Scott Derrickson. The movie stars Ethan Hawke as a serial killer known as The Grabber, a role he felt compelled to take at this point in his life.

‘The Black Phone’ happened because of Marvel Studios

The Black Phone reteams Derrickson and Hawke for the first time since 2012’s Sinister. That movie became a box office success and even spawned a sequel, which Derrickson produced. But casual moviegoers probably know Derrickson for another film. The director dipped into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to make 2016’s Doctor Strange but ultimately didn’t return for its sequel.
