“The Boogeyman,” a thriller/horror movie with supernatural components and an evil monster who only comes at night, is the most anticipated horror film of 2023. Even adults find the red glow of the devil’s eyes scary, let alone youngsters, who should be scared. Rob Savage, a recognized personality in supernatural horror who has won numerous honors in the genre, directed “The Boogeyman.” Scott Beck, the author of “A Quiet Place,” Bryan Woods, the author of “The Bride Wore Blood,” and Mark Heyman, the creator of “The Skelton Twins,” wrote the screenplay for the film.
The majority of the filming and shooting took place in New Orleans. It was adapted from a short story by Stephen King, the father of the horror subgenre. It will be clear only after watching the film how many additions have been made to the original story, which was a psychological horror.
The story centers on a family that recently experienced tragedy when the mother of their children passed away. The two girls and their father relocate to a new home. When they sense a supernatural presence in the house, the family experiences the most terrifying moment of their lives. Young children experience horror and fear because of it. It will now be up to the father to make things right and safeguard his daughters. However, he must first be able to believe in what his daughter witnessed.

The official announcement for the film was made in 2018. However, with Disney’s takeover of Fox, the film was canceled.

Trailer And Plot
In the spooky opening scene of the trailer, a small girl is having trouble falling asleep, but her father reassures her that nothing will emerge from their closet. Even after her father’s monster check, something occurs. A few seconds later, the closet opens by itself, and an unnoticed ghost rearranges the belongings. Like in any other horror movie, the sound can make viewers shudder because it appears just when they are expecting a monster to appear. The girl finds it difficult to convince herself on a daily basis that a horrible creature resides in their home, but they gradually come to realize something is amiss. The story will show more of the connection between the siblings and their father.
Even before the release of the smash hit “Carrie,” the short story that served as the inspiration for the movie was released in the 1970s. The family’s father is a psychologist who is not aware of the risk present in the home. The father doesn’t believe until he witnesses the things for himself, but by then, it’s too late, for the monster has already inhabited the house where his girls live. There are two daughters who start to see things in the house when it is dark. The young girl draws the contours of the demon and shows it to her father, and the episodes seem to be related.
When the psychiatrist encounters a patient who appears to believe that the boogeyman killed his child, there are some fascinating and suspenseful elements to the story. He felt bad for not being able to save their lives and took responsibility for it.
The children are depicted in the trailer as attempting to have decent lives after their mother passes away. A teenage girl with concerns begins to perceive grotesque eyes throughout the night. But it doesn’t look like her father believes her. Similar experiences have been had by her younger sister. The father now believes that it is psychological and not actual. There is suspense in this situation, and one must watch the movie to find out what is terrifying the girls. Fans of the horror genre should not miss this thriller, which will astound the viewer with its detailed and intriguing plot.
