Are you ready for some football?

Stephen King himself is letting horror fans know the trailer for the big-screen adaptation of his short story The Boogeyman will air sometime during this Sunday’s NFC Championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers. Check out the tweet from the horror master on this page.

Just in case you want to be in front of a TV set for the big reveal (and who doesn’t?), that game kicks off at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29 on Fox.

The Boogeyman–originally planned as a Hulu small-screen release–will land in theaters June 2. The PG-13-rated feature–directed by Rob Savage (Host) from a screenplay by Mark Heyman–stars David Dastmalchian, Marin Ireland, Vivien Lyra Blair, Madison Hu, Chris Messina and Sophie Thatcher.

King’s original horror tale follows a man who visits a psychiatrist to talk about the gruesome murders of his three children at the hands of an evil being.

The film takes a slightly different approach, according to the synopsis, and follows a 16-year-old and her younger sister, “still reeling from the death of their mother, as they’re targeted by a supernatural boogeyman after their psychologist father has an encounter with a desperate patient in their house.”
