Poster Debut: The Boogeyman is Coming out of the Closet (Yep, He Is!)

I have never read Stephen King’s short story The Boogeyman, but now that I know there’s a short film adaptation on the way, I’m going to have to seek it out post-haste! We’ve got a look at the poster today so come on in and check it out!

From director Gerard Lough’s YouTube Channel: 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.

No word yet one when/where we’ll be able to catch this sucker, but we’ll keep you posted.

    Cool poster.

    This looks like it could be a “Dollar baby”. For a number of years now, King has allowed aspiring filmmakers/film school students working with low budgets to adapt certain of his short works for the cost of one dollar, thus the origin of the term. The Last Rung on the Ladder, The Lawnmower Man (the original story about the fat, naked grass devouring Pan worshipper , not the sci fi flick from the nineties),Cain Rose Up ,The Woman in the Room (which was directed by a young man named Frank Darabont) and even a previous short film based on The Boogeyman are all examples of stories he has written which have been adapted under the dollar baby venue.

    I’m surprised to see King getting behind what seems to be a REALLY low budget film. Good for him, although I have to admit the trailer looked very unappealing.
