'The Boogeyman' Release Dates

Stephen King’s adaptation, The Boogeyman, is scheduled for digital release on August 29, and the physical Blu-ray and DVD will be available from October 10. The movie narrates the tale of two sisters and their therapist father as they confront the reality of loss and a menacing entity known as The Boogeyman. The physical edition will contain exclusive features like a featurette and a reel of outtakes, and there are plans for a potential streaming availability on Hulu at a subsequent time.

The Boogeyman, this year’s celebrated Stephen King adaptation that has earned its place on FilmSweep’s 2023 top horror movie lineup, is set to be accessible to fans sooner than expected. Directed by Rob Savage, the movie will first launch digitally on August 29, and later on Blu-ray and DVD from October 10. Featuring Sophie Thatcher, Chris Messina, and Vivien Lyra Blair, the film made its theatrical debut in June, based on King’s eponymous short story.

In The Boogeyman, Sadie (Thatcher) and Sawyer (Lyra Blair) are two sisters who, together with their therapist father Will (Messina), are struggling to cope with their mother’s abrupt death. The scenario becomes more complex when an anguished patient visits their home, introducing a malevolent entity known as The Boogeyman that preys on their sorrow. The family is then compelled to unite to overcome their trauma and banish the evil entity permanently. While the plot is rooted in King’s acclaimed short story, the film broadens the narrative, serving not merely as a direct adaptation but rather a continuation of the original work.

The movie will be available for digital purchase on platforms such as Prime Video, Apple TV, and Fandango/Vudu later this month, followed by its physical release in October. Those willing to wait until October will be treated to bonus features, including a new featurette titled Into the Darkness, where the film’s cast and crew provide insights into the process of converting King’s horrifying narrative into a film. Additionally, an outtakes reel will be available for viewers seeking lighter content after the chilling feature. Although no official streaming release date has been disclosed yet, the film is expected to appear on Hulu at some point in the future.

Since its initial release in June, the film has been reasonably successful, earning $82.4 million at the box office with a $35 million budget. The Boogeyman received mixed reviews, achieving a 62% rating on the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. Director Savage is no stranger to the horror genre, with successful previous projects like Host and Dashcam under his belt. The film’s screenplay was crafted by Scott Beck, Bryan Woods, and Mark Heyman, and was produced by Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen, while Patrick Jonsson composed the score.

Digital copies of The Boogeyman will be available for purchase from August 29, with physical copies hitting shelves from October 10.
