A terrifying new trailer and a new poster for 20th Century Studios and 21 Laps’ The Boogeyman are available now. The horror-thriller from the mind of best-selling author Stephen King opens on June 2, exclusively in theaters worldwide.
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.
The Boogeyman is directed by Rob Savage (Host), with a screenplay by Scott Beck (A Quiet Place), Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place), and Mark Heyman (Black Swan). The screen story by Beck and Woods is based upon the short story by Stephen King, and stars Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets), Chris Messina (Air), Vivien Lyra Blair (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy), Madison Hu (Bizaardvark), LisaGay Hamilton (Vice), and David Dastmalchian (Boston Strangler). The producers are Shawn Levy (Stranger Things), Dan Levine (Arrival), and Dan Cohen (The Adam Project), with John H. Starke (Sicario), Emily Morris (Rosaline), Beck, Woods, Ryan Cunningham (Flatbush Misdemeanors), Adam Kolbrenner (The Tomorrow War), and Robyn Meisinger (Slender Man) serving as executive producers.
“The Boogeyman is a classic horror movie in the mold of Poltergeist that has scares and heart in equal measure,” says director Rob Savage. “I vividly remember the terror I felt reading King’s short story as a kid, and it’s this feeling of childhood fear that I wanted to inspire in cinema audiences around the world. This film was made in collaboration with an incredibly talented team of creatives and is anchored by wonderful, soulful performances from our incredible cast — I’m in awe of them, truly. We’re incredibly proud of this movie and can’t wait to give you all a reason to fear the dark again on June 2.”
