Stephen King’s The Boogeyman Comes to Life in New Trailer
Published 2 months ago
We’ve recently been seeing a ‘Renaissance’ of Stephen King adaptations lately with properties like IT and Doctor Sleep, and 20th Century Studios has shared a trailer focusing on one of the most classic folk monsters out there.
Check out the trailer for The Boogeyman:
here’s the official syonopsis:
High school student Sadie Harper and her younger sister Sawyer are reeling from the recent death of their mother and aren’t getting much support from their father, Will, 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.
We know that the story is adapted from Stephen King’s original, and the film is being helmed by Host director Rob Savage. The movie is also working with a script from A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. It’s also worth mentioning that Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, The Adam Project) is attached as a producer for the movie.
Though we’ve always had horror movies with all kinds of variations of ‘Boogey Men’ I have a feeling this movie is going to be one of those ‘kid-friendly’ horror films like Stranger Things or the new IT movies. With the genre lately focusing on adult themes, I always get surprised when we have these horror movies that kids can actually get into.
The Boogeyman comes to cinemas on June 2.
