Stan Lee-Produced The Sandman Set for October Premiere on Syfy

Published

on

Stan Lee’s recent and upcoming producing projects consist of about 99.9% Marvel movies, but mixed in amongst the superheroes is a boogeyman who sounds worthy of his (and our) attention… The Sandman, and the film is set to premiere on Syfy next month as part of the network’s Halloween celebration.

From the Press Release:
It’s a rare occurrence (in fact, almost never) that creative legend Stan Lee (The Avengers, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) produces an original movie, but this is the case with the compelling thriller The Sandman, an original horror movie for television premiering on Syfy next month on Saturday, October 14th, at 9PM. Executive produced by Lee alongside Gill Champion, Barry Barnholtz (Leprechaun), and Jeffrey Schenck (Finders Keepers, The Crooked Man), The Sandman, which features genre standouts Tobin Bell (the Saw films), Shaun Sipos (“The Vampire Diaries,” Texas Chainsaw 3D, Final Destination 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), and Ricco Ross (Aliens), stars Haylie Duff (Napoleon Dynamite, Material Girls) like you have never seen her before.

Writer/director Peter Sullivan (Ominous, Summoned), whose production company, Hybrid, is known for exceptional movies for television, crafted the horror around eight-year-old “Madison” (Shae Smolik), who, when her father is found dead, goes to live with her “Aunt Claire” (Haylie Duff), a struggling artist in a nearby city. It isn’t long before Claire realizes that the young girl has unusual powers, including the ability to manifest a frightening boogeyman she calls “The Sandman.” Claire quickly begins to suspect that The Sandman might be responsible not only for the death of Madison’s father, but many other victims across the country.

With a clandestine government agency closing in on the young girl, Claire and Madison will have to work together to find a way to stop The Sandman before he claims his next victim. Factor in the sinister “Valentine” (Tobin Bell), who leads a cadre of bureaucrats who do not mean well; and soon strange things start happening whenever Madison is around. Objects move around by themselves. Cabinet doors open and close. Almost as if there’s some kind of supernatural entity in the house. It’s a journey you’ll have to fully experience to understand.
