Whatever you do, don’t let it out.
The first trailer for The Boogeyman arrived–as expected–over the weekend during the NFC Championship game, and then appeared online. Check out the video below for a sneak peek of the big screen adaptation of the Stephen King short story.
The Boogeyman–originally planned as a Hulu small-screen release–will hit theaters June 2. The 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 story deals with a man who visits a psychiatrist in order to discuss the gruesome murders of his three children at the hands of an evil being.
The PG-13-rated film puts a new twist on the tale. In it, a 16-year-old and her younger sister, “still reeling from the death of their mother, are targeted by a supernatural boogeyman after their psychologist father has an encounter with a desperate patient in their house,” according to the synopsis.
