The PG-13-rated pic–slated for the big screen June 2–is directed by Rob Savage from a screenplay by Mark Heyman. The cast includes David Dastmalchian, Marin Ireland, Vivien Lyra Blair, Madison Hu, Chris Messina and Sophie Thatcher.
King’s original story follows a man who visits a psychiatrist to discuss the horrifying murders of his three children at the hands of an evil entity, but this adaptation goes in a slightly different direction.
In the film, high school student Sadie Harper and her kid sister Sawyer “are reeling from the recent death of their mother,” according to the synopsis, “and aren’t getting much support from their father Will, a therapist who is dealing with his own pain.”
And then, when a desperate patient shows up at their home, he leaves behind “a terrifying supernatural entity that preys on families and feeds on the suffering of its victims.”
