The monster is real in the latest trailer for The Boogeyman

Denial is not just a river in Egypt. No matter how many times people refuse its existence, the monster is real in the latest trailer for The Boogeyman.

Based on the haunting story from bestselling author Stephen King (It), The Boogeyman showcases the terrifying creature that stalks, haunts, and preys upon its suffering victims. In this case, the targets are Harper (Yellowjackets’s Sophie Thatcher), a high school student, and her younger sister, Sawyer (Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Vivien Lyra Blair), sisters who are struggling to cope with the recent loss of their mother.

Their father, Will (Air’s Chris Messina), a therapist, cannot get past his grief to be the dad that his daughters need. When an unsettling patient (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s David Dastmalchian) visits the house, the titular creature soon follows, unleashing its evil presence.

The boogeyman terrorizes the family in the new trailer, attacking all areas of the house, especially where it’s dark. Even though Harper denies the existence of monsters, she soon comes around to believing in the creature’s existence, especially after it crashes through her bedroom door. The Boogeyman also stars Madison Hu (Bizaardvark), Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy), and LisaGay Hamilton (The Lincoln Lawyer).

The Boogeyman is directed by Rob Savage (Host) from a screenplay written by Scott Beck (65), Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place), and Mark Heyman (Black Swan). Originally set to debut on Hulu, The Boogeyman will now premiere in theaters before it winds up streaming at a later date.

The Boogeyman trailer: don’t look under the bed
A girl puts her hand on the ground with a light in front of her face in The Boogeyman.

Don't look under the bed, or the Boogeyman might find you. The first trailer for The Boogeyman, the latest adaption of a story from Stephen King, has been released by 20th Century Studios. The initial footage debuted during the 2023 NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles on January 29.

Teenager Sadie Harper (Yellowjackets's Sophie Thatcher) and her younger sister, Sawyer (Obi-Wan Kenobi's Vivien Lyra Blair), are still struggling to move on from the tragic death of their mother. This leads to an uneasy relationship with their father, Will (The Sinner's Chris Messina), a therapist struggling with his grief. When an unpredictable patient shows up at the Harper residence, he leaves behind an evil supernatural presence that stalks the grieving family and exploits their suffering. As the patient unwaveringly explains to Will, this entity is "the thing that comes for your kids when you're not paying attention."

The year may be rapidly coming to a close, but Hulu has at least one more buzzy true crime series on the docket ahead of the new year. The upcoming miniseries Welcome To Chippendales follows the unlikely story of Somen "Steve" Banerjee, an Indian immigrant who founded Chippendales in 1979. For those of you unfamiliar with Chippendales, it's a male striptease chain geared toward women. Banerjee correctly saw the potential for it to become a franchise. However, he may not have predicted just how far he was willing to go for his empire.
