The Black String is a horror movie from 2018 that stars Frankie Muniz, Blake Webb, and Chelsea Edmundson. The movie is directed by Brian Hanson and is written by Brian and Richard Handley. The movie is rated R for strong sexual content, language throughout, some drug use, and a disturbing violent image. The Black String follows the story of young and quiet Jonathan (played by Blake Webb) who works as a gas station attendant somewhere in the American Southwest. He is somewhat of a loner and doesn't have many friends, preferring to spend his time at home watching TV, listening to music, and surfing the internet. He lives with his mother and suffers from a rare medical condition that causes him to have seizures at random times.

One day, Jonathan meets a beautiful, outgoing woman named Dena (played by Chelsea Edmundson) at the gas station where he works. Dena is everything that Jonathan is not -- she's outgoing, confident, and full of life. The two strike up a conversation and exchange numbers. From that moment on, Jonathan becomes completely infatuated with Dena, calling and texting her multiple times a day, even showing up at her job unannounced.

As Jonathan and Dena grow closer, strange things begin to happen to Jonathan. He starts having vivid nightmares, experiences hallucinations, and suffers from frequent seizures. His behavior becomes erratic, and he starts to believe that he is being followed by a mysterious and malevolent force that he calls "the black string."

The more Jonathan investigates the black string, the deeper he falls into a psychological abyss, and the more dangerous his obsession with Dena becomes. He begins to lose touch with reality and commits increasingly violent acts, culminating in a horrifying and bloody climax.

The Black String is a deeply unsettling and disturbing movie that offers a unique and terrifying take on the horror genre. The film is anchored by strong performances from its lead actors and is expertly directed and shot, with a moody and atmospheric tone that perfectly captures the sense of creeping dread that permeates the story.

Overall, The Black String is an intense and thought-provoking movie that is sure to leave a lasting impression on audiences. Its themes of obsession, madness, and spiritual corruption are sure to resonate with anyone who has ever been consumed by their own dark desires. If you're a fan of psychological horror or are simply looking for a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat, The Black String is definitely worth checking out.
