Why Is The Grabber Never Revealed In The Black Phone?

Adapted from a short story by Stephen King’s son Joe Hill, The Black Phone is undoubtedly a chilling fear trip, yet the movie refuses to answer one central mystery – why The Grabber is never revealed in The Black Phone. The Black Phone follows the horrifying plight of Finney (Mason Thames) as he tries to escape the gnarled clutches of The Grabber (Ethan Hawke), with help from The Grabber’s past victims calling Finney through a black phone in his basement cell. The Black Phone is a grim story about comradery in the face of evil, but the mystery around the antagonist elevates this film above others in the genre.

This one overlooked detail of The Grabber elevates The Black Phone into an instant cult classic and something new horror movies should look out for.
