The Boogeyman, Written by Stephen King
20th Century Studios’ latest production, “The Boogeyman,” derives from a short story written by the Master of Horror, Stephen King. The story is part of King’s “Night Shift” collection, which has provided the basis for several film adaptations including “Children of the Corn,” “Battleground,” “Lawnmower Man,” and “Jerusalem’s Lot.”
Scott Beck, Bryan Woods, and Mark Heyman and their filmography are nothing but impressive. The writers of A Quiet Place and Black Swan making an adaption of a Stephen King story is exciting.
Director Rob Savage better deliver because he is working with impressive scriptwriters.
The Boogeyman Official Trailer
Sadie and her sister Sawyer, still grappling with their mother’s sudden passing. They have found their entire world turned upside down by this tragedy. Despite this, the sisters’ distress only made them a more susceptible target for an unseen force. In their weakened state, the sisters became the primary focus of the Boogeyman. It is a presence that preyed upon their vulnerability.
The ominous presence of evil has begun to haunt Sadie and her sister Sawyer every night, filling them with terror and leaving them feeling helpless. The only person who could protect the sisters from this malevolent entity was their grieving father, but his mind was consumed by the loss of his wife and he remained unaware of the danger lurking in the shadows. Despite his preoccupation with his sorrow, the sisters desperately needed their father’s protection from the sadistic entity that had been taking the lives of innocent children. However, it seemed that their father was too consumed by his grief to notice the peril that his daughters were in.
Sawyer sleeps with the light on to make her feel safe from the Boogeyman but we know it is useless.
After test screenings received positive responses, 20th Century Studios changed their initial plans and decided to give the film a wide theatrical distribution instead of just distributing it straight to Hulu’s streaming service. So that shows the potential of this movie. The Theaters are expected to feature The Boogeyman on June 2, 2023.
