One of our lifetime’s greatest storytellers is without question Stephen King. Luckily for us he’s pretty much stayed within our beloved genre, and that’s why we never hesitate to tell you guys about new films based upon his work. Even short films.
From the Press Release
Based on the short story by Stephen King, THE BOOGEYMAN is an ambitious short film directed by Irish filmmaker Gerard Lough and starring Simon Fogarty and Michael Parle.
The film has intricate visual effects that are CGI as well as in camera. It also feature excellent makeup effects by one of the best artists in Ireland – Julie Ann Ryan. This, combined with a faithful adaption of King’s much loved source material, strong performances, stunning visuals and a creepy electronic score, will make for a very memorable 30-minute movie, which will be shown at film festivals all over the world.
When Andrew Billings (Simon Fogarty) goes to see a psychologist to explain how an evil creature that lives in his closet is responsible for the deaths of his three children, he is met with disbelief. But as the story progresses, both Dr. Harper (Michael Parle) and the audience will start to consider the possibility that this “boogeyman” might be real after all.
