The real horror is being stuck on iOS 3 forever.
Netflix has released a trailer for its latest adaptation of Stephen King, Mr. Harry Root’s Phone , based on the short story of the same name. In the trailer, we see Craig played by Jaeden Martell (who starred in the most recent it Adapted from and Knives out ), forging a connection with the titular Mr. Harrigan, an aging billionaire who was founded by Donald Sutherland (Snowland) The President played in The Hunger Games and Mr. Bennet in 2005’s Pride and Prejudice .
According to Netflix, this movie is about Craig and Mr Harrigan’s connection on their first iPhone seems to keep them connected after the old man’s death. Of course, the trailer looks more sinister. The man was left with a voicemail after the boy’s death, which resulted in a call back and his bully was found dead. (Hopefully this movie is better than other Netflix adaptations of similar concepts. Thankfully, Netflix has a decent track record of making Stephen King stories.)
A quirk in the trailer Almost distracting is the age of cell phones. Mr. Harrigan gets what looks to be the original iPhone, and at the back of the trailer we see Craig using an iPhone 4 or 4S. The short story adaptation of the film is not from that period – it was published in 2020 If It Bleeds , but perhaps more credibly, these characters got their first smartphones in the late 2000s instead of using the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The movie will be available on Netflix starting October 5th, just in time for the start of the Halloween horror movie season . Personally, I’m looking forward to watching it and desperately trying to distract myself with my phone in the many shots in the trailer that really look like they’re going to end with a jump scare.

Pausing a Starlink RV subscription is a very cost-effective feature.
Starlink can be expensive, but for me it was totally worth it this year to pay an average of €53/month from the remote beaches where I work and play in the summer (read my review here ).

With any luck, the price will drop again when I restart it.
