Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Based on the 1973 short story of the same name by Stephen King
High school student Sadie Harper and her little sister Sawyer are still reeling from the recent death of their mother. Devastated by his own pain, their father Will, a therapist by profession, gives them neither the support nor the affection that they try to claim from him. When a desperate patient shows up unexpectedly at their house asking for help, they bring in a terrifying entity that preys on the families and feeds on their greatest suffering.
A psychiatrist, where a man named Lester Billings talks to the doctor about the ‘murders’ of his three young children, describing the events of the past several years. His first two children died mysteriously of apparently unrelated causes (diagnosed as crib death and convulsions, respectively) when left alone in their bedrooms. The only commonalities were that the children cried ‘Boogeyman!’ before being left alone, and the closet door ajar after discovering their corpses, even though Billings is certain the door was shut.”
