Final Trailer Drops For Stephen King’s THE BOOGEYMAN

Stephen King‘s short story THE BOOGEYMAN has been adapted by Scott Beck & Bryan Woods (65, A QUIET PLACE) into a new feature film directed by Rob Savage (DASHCAM, THE HOST) that’s headed to Australian Cinemas from June 1 and 20th Century Studios have just dropped the Final Trailer

THE BOOGEYMAN is a classic horror movie in the mould 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.

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 stars Sophie Thatcher (YELLOWJACKETS), Chris Messina (BIRDS OF PREY), Vivien Lyra Blair (OBI-WAN KENOBI), Marin Ireland (THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY), Madison Hu (BIZAARDVARK), LisaGay Hamilton (VICE), and David Dastmalchian (DUNE).
