Can you see this?

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.

"Scott, our director, changed his mind and decided that all the ghost kids were going to be practical makeup effects.  Everybody was really, really excited about it and the kids loved it.  We were told multiple times that we're their favorite department to work with because they got to, y'know, play Halloween every day."  - Rick Pour, Makeup & Makeup FX Department Head, The Black Phone "Devil in the Design" behind the scenes segment.
