New TERROR based on a short story by Stephen King debuts on Netflix; Check out the reviews!

Published

on

Netflix has released another adaptation of a Stephen King short story, after adapting “Dangerous Game”, “1922” and “Field of Fear”.

This is the movie ‘Mr. Harrigan’ (Mr. Harrigan’s Phone), who accompanies the boy Craig.

He befriends a much older billionaire, Mr. Harrigan. When Mr. Harrigan dies, Craig puts his iPhone in his pocket before being buried. But one day, Craig sends a message on his smartphone and discovers that his old friend is able to communicate with him from the grave.

Although highly anticipated since the announcement, the production only has 33% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.

Of the 18 reviews published so far, only six are positive, while the rest are negative.

Have fun watching:

Among the critics, critics said that the film brought an interesting development between the protagonists played by Jaeden Martell (from ‘It – The Thing’), Donald Sutherland (‘Moonfall – Lunar Menace’).

However, the plot is long and boring, in addition to not providing any element that holds the viewer’s attention.

Check out the reviews:

“The only thing that gets you hooked on the movie is the warm relationship between Craig and Mr. Harrigan, but that’s not enough to stop you staring at your own phone.” – Mix of prints.

“Unfortunately, despite its intriguing premise, ‘Mr. Harrigan’ lacks the necessary ingredient to make it truly unforgettable; it’s just not terribly scary.” – The Hollywood journalist.

“‘Mr. Harrigan’ is a boring, drawn-out film that tries to be both a coming-of-age drama and a supernatural horror flick, and fails to make an emotional impact in either genre. – CinemaBlend.

“While the relationship between Craig and Mr. Harrigan is what keeps this movie alive, the adaptation loses the fight trying to keep up. – Nightmarish Conjurings.

“As with King’s greatest stories, the best parts here aren’t the horror elements (of which there are few). It’s the time spent with the characters. – Arizona Republic.

“A good start turns into a fable of dull, uneven morality that is ultimately too vague to have any impact.” – Bloody disgusting.

John Lee Hancock (‘The Little Remains’) directs. The cast also includes Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Colin O’Brien, Cyrus Arnold and Joe Tippett.

Ryan Murphy (“American Horror Story”) and Jason Blum, via Blumhouse, are the producers of the project.
