The Truthful Phone


The Truthful Phone is based by a Terry Jones (Monty Python) short story of the same name, supported in part by the Film Agency Wales with BAFTA nominated director Carl Rock.

The Truthful Phone is a dark comedy about nasty pensioner Mae Morris; local busybody, pet kidnapper, husband killer. Who unwittingly unleashes a magical gypsy curse that exposes her secrets to the very townsfolk she lives to torment.

A feel good, fast paced, high-concept comedy with Jim Henson’esque creatures wreaking havoc in a craggy, remote village.

Imagine a Welsh Gremlins with shades of Guillermo Del Toro.

Carl optioned this story three years ago and has been developing the script since. We have been granted the rights to make this film by Terry Jones himself.
