The most epic scene is when Finney can hear his previous victims through the black phone. He hears them call out to him, they are asking him to leave them alone.

Finney Shaw learns that there are a lot of things you don’t know if you’ve never been through something difficult before like having many kidnappings and murders happen around you in this movie, and he learns that even though things may seem normal at first, there might be a bigger problem underneath the surface that you might not be able to see with your own eyes.

Would you recommend watching this ?

I would definitely recommend this film because it contains many action sequences. There are also some more suspenseful moments, but I would not recommend this film to anyone who gets easily scared. This film has received a R rating from the MPAA for violence/disturbing content. This film is supposed to be pretty intense and gruesome, because of all the murders and kidnappings that take place in it. Thanks for reading !
