‘The Boogeyman’ Trailer: Horror Film Takes Creepy Stephen King Story to the Screen

20th Century Studios

Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for The Boogeyman, an upcoming horror-thriller based on the 1973 short story of the same name by author Stephen King.

The plot follows high school student Sadie Harper (Sophie Thatcher, Yellowjackets) and her younger sister Sawyer (Vivien Lyra Blair, Obi-Wan Kenobi), who are reeling from the recent death of their mother. They aren’t getting much support from their father, Will (Chris Messina, Birds of Prey), a therapist who is dealing with his own pain. When a desperate patient unexpectedly shows up at their home seeking help, he leaves behind a terrifying supernatural entity that preys on families and feeds on the suffering of its victims.

The film is directed by Rob Savage, who previously directed two “computer screen horror” films, 2021’s Dashcam and the impressive 2020 Shudder release Host (our review of that one HERE). The screenplay was penned by A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck & Bryan Woods and Black Swan co-writer Mark Heyman.

The Boogeyman, also starring Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy), Madison Hu (Bizaardvark), LisaGay Hamilton (Vice), and David Dastmalchian (Dune), will open in Australian cinemas on June 1st and U.S. cinemas on June 2nd.
