Chilling, highly-rated horror film set in 1970s Denver suburb | OutThere Colorado

“It’s difficult to watch The Black Phone and not draw lines between the Atlanta child murders of 1979-1981 or the Detroit-area Oakland County Child Killer cases of the 1970s.”

    I lived in Oak Park, was raised there, Moved to Warren in 74. It never leaves me, the OCCK. We moved to Waterford fall of 75, Nothing was known to me of this area, all was woods, lakes, open spaces. 1976, When my dad read the papers, I knew the areas kids vanished from, obviously he did too. Kids snatched from places I knew, what made me safer? that I was no longer in the area? I remember fear, walking to the bus, walking home. Always looking over my shoulder. I was usually alone. I remember when Winter came, newspapers plastered with OCCK. My parents took me and my brother, we stayed in Salem Township with my Grandparents. My parents on edge. That spring, surrounded by lakes, woods, too many places a Boogeyman could hide ( my thoughts) I stopped going outside, I stopped riding my bike, the seed was deeply planted. My dad kept saying the press is withholding information. He knew things weren’t adding up, the reporting that is.
    I watched 40 seconds of the Black Phone premier, that was enough. I know it exists in reality. I simply can’t bear to watch it. I do believe these scripts are depictions of real cases. They can say it’s Fiction all they want. I call BS. They love these perps, esp after they’re dead, Having their secrets, diaries, ledgers and god knows what else. These movies too give up and coming sadists instructions. I stop here. Bless you Cathy for all your efforts, I come here and read at random, wing and prayer, something tangible has been discovered.
