Gather round, gang! Ethan Hawke is about to fill us in on The Grabber, the make-your-skin-crawl villain from the upcoming The Black Phone. In this brand new featurette, Hawke discusses venturing to the dark side, and the potential pitfalls of being a little too good at it, a little too often. The soft-spoken delivery behind the sinister grabber mask is bone-chilling, to say the least.

Director Scott Derrickson and Blumhouse bring us the story of Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy. As a series of abductions take place in Finney's town, he soon realizes he's next on the list. Abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement, Finney discovers a disconnected phone, on the other end—the voices of The Grabber's previous victims, as they attempt to use their own stories to aid Finney during his captivity. Take a look at the full featurette below for a sinister sneak peek.

Check out FANGORIA issue #14 and get yourself hyped with an in-depth conversation between director/co-writer Scott Derrickson, co-writer C. Robert Cargill, and short story author Joe Hill. We also hit up Tom Savini protege Jason Baker to learn how the terrifying mask from The Black Phone was made (and be sure to check out the back cover for a related surprise).

The Black Phone hits theaters June 24th.
