Synopsis: Finney Shaw is 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 no 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. READ REVIEW

Release Date: June 24, 2022 (USA) | Length: 102 min | Genre: Horror | MPAA Rating: Rated R for violence, bloody images, language and some drug use. | Note(s): Release date moved from January 28, 2022 to June 24, 2022. In the trailer, there is a woman who looks to be the principal that I can’t identify. I have to wait until the movie is released to see if the cast list is updated.
