Halloween Spotted: The Black Phone behind the scenes...

I started working my way through my new themed list of movies (more on that closer to October) and one of the entries I was looking forward to watching was the adaptation of author Joe Hill's "The Black Phone" short story.  Having really enjoyed it I of course dove into the making-of featurettes that were included on Peacock Premium.  I was super surprised and pleased to see that both lead actor Ethan Hawke and the Make-Up FX Department Head Rick Pour made references to the Halloween season in their interviews.  Ethan Hawke, The Black Phone behind-the-scenes.   "The joy of doing a scary movie is that I always like to picture a group of friends going to a movie theater at midnight on Halloween or people having a sleepover party, and it's your job --like you're sitting around a campfire-- it's your job to tell a scary story." - Ethan Hawke, The Black Phone "Ethan Hawke's Evil Turn" behind the scenes segment.

Halloween Spotted: The Hunt

Halloween Spotted: New York Times Arts & Leisure Film section...

Oh, New York Times... you're so cheeky. As part of the large Arts & Leisure Film section of Sunday's 9/11/22 paper, Halloween Ends gets a mention in the calendar for the rest of the year's releases.   Though I'm looking forward to the "final" installment of this franchise, I can't say I disagree with them...
