Stephen King’s The Boogeyman Trailer Is Out And It’s Terrifyingly Scary

Based on the trailer, The Boogeyman does not accurately adapt the novel; instead, it serves as a sequel following two daughters of a psychiatrist. Sadie and Sawyer Harper deal with the loss of their mother while enduring a stressful relationship with their father. Unluckily, an unexpected drop-in will bring the boogeyman into their house, forcing the teenage leads to fight and survive.

The story is told from a unique perspective wherein a patient claims to be the target of a supernatural being. He said that the boogeyman cursed his family and went after his children. The man is convinced that there is foul play in the death of his kids and that the legend of the boogeyman is true. As a person of science, the psychiatrist dismissed the patient’s story until a new target has been found.
