'The Boogeyman': 20th Century Studios releases terrifying trailer for new Stephen King adaptation

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: adaptations have never failed to bring our worst nightmares to the silver screen. From the classic 'The Shining' (1980) and '' (1989) to 'IT' (2017), the list of bone-chilling King movies is quite long. Now, in a New Year treat for the author's ardent fans, and 21 Laps have released a shiver-worthy trailer for 'The Boogeyman', based on a short story by Stephen King.

The movie is based on a short story by the veteran author, first published in March 1973. It was announced on June 26, 2018 that filmmaking partners Scott Beck and Bryan Woods would write the movie with Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen. However, due to some setbacks, the film was canceled at the time, along with some other projects.
