Stephen King is back in ‘Mr Harrigan’s Phone’the new Netflix movie based on the short story included in his novel ‘Blood rules’ of 2020 in which, how could it be otherwise, the one from Maine returns to combine some of horror, intrigue and fantasy in which it is also one of the most human films by Stephen King, by adding to the equation the theme of school bullying.
Although it is not one of the best adaptations of Stephen King, but neither does it reach the level of ‘Transformers’, from which King fled in terror from the cinema, ‘Mr. Harrigan’s telephone’ does deserve a viewing. The film introduces us to friendship story between young man Craig (Jaeden Martellwhom you will remember for his role as Bill Denbrough in ‘It’, also King’s adaptation) Y the old man Mr Harrigan (Donald Sutherlandwhich needs no introduction) and the strong bond between the two, even beyond the death of the old manthanks to a bridge rare: cell phone with which they buried him and that serves as a connection between them.
From here, there are spoilers for ‘Mr. Harrigan’s Phone’
Craigwho is completely dejected after the death of his friend, continues to contact Harrigan, at which point receives three indecipherable messages from beyond on his screen, cryptic and so difficult to interpret that they would delight Klaatu and his “Klaatu barada nikto” in ‘Earth Last’, one of the best robot movies ever, and leave us with that nagging feeling that ” We’ve missed something key in the movie.” Well, maybe it’s not that big of a deal but, just in case, and because he’s always very active on RRSS, Stephen King has decided to lend us a hand from his Twitter account to make known the meaning that contains each of them. Let’s see them.

The first message quoted by the writer, CCCx, it would mean “I love you” (from Mr. Harrigan); the second, CCC aa, it would be equivalent to “it hurts”, as a kind of cry of pain; finally, CCC sT would be a “Craig, stop”perhaps responding to the wishes of the deceased that his young friend let him rest in peace.
The most disturbing thing about all this is that, at the beginning of the tweet, the author of works like ‘Misery’ and ‘The Shining’ does not hesitate to ensure that it’s just “your personal interpretation” and, assures, “not be 100% sure” that this is its real meaning in the Netflix movie. Pure Stephen King.
