The Boogeyman is one of Stephen King‘s best short stories from the Night Shift collection. The original might be a bit different than the movie that was released earlier this year, but the changes they made were essential. When I tell you this was one of the most terrifying films of the year, I mean it. It was thought that The Boogeyman might be going the way of Barbarian or Hellraiser and not getting an actual Blu-ray release, but that’s not the case. The Boogeyman arrives on Digital on August 29th and on Blu-ray and DVD on October 10th.

If you missed out on the movie, here’s a quick synopsis.

In this horror-thriller from the mind of Stephen King, two sisters — along with their therapist father — are reeling from their mother’s death. When a desperate patient comes to their home, he leaves behind a terrifying entity that feeds on its victims’ suffering.  

It stars Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets), Chris Messina (AIR), David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad) and Vivien Lyra Blair (Obi-Wan Kenobi). Rob Savage directed the film with a script from Scott Beck, Bryan Woods, and Mark Heyman.
