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.
Watch the new trailer below:
“The Boogeyman is a classic horror movie in the mold of Poltergeist that has scares and heart in equal measure,” said director Rob Savage. “I vividly remember the terror I felt reading [Stephen] 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.”
Be sure to check out The Boogeyman in theaters June 2! Oh, and maybe keep your lights on.
