What is The Boogeyman about?
“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,” reads the synopsis. “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 was directed by Rob Savage (Host) from a screenplay adapted by Black Swan’s Mark Heyman, based on the original drafts co-written by Akela Cooper with A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. The film stars Yellowjackets breakout Sophie Thatcher, Chris Messina (Sharp Objects), David Dastmalchian, Marin Ireland (The Last Man), Vivien Lyra Blair (Bird Box, Obi-Wan Kenobi), LisaGay Hamilton (Vice), and Madison Hu (Voyagers).
The film adaptation is a production by 21 Laps. It is being produced by Shawn Levy, Dan Levin, and Dan Cohen. Beck and Woods, who have been attached to the project since 2018, are serving as executive producers. Stephen King’s The Boogeyman short story was first published in the 1973 issue of Cavalier magazine. It was later released in 1978 as part of King’s Night Shift collection.
