Based on a short story by Stephen King, “The Boogeyman” is a terrifying flick.

When a man named Lester Billings (David Dastmalchian) drops by Will’s house, telling a frightening tale about a monster that comes out of his closet and kills his children over the years, their lives take a terrifying turn. Lester releases the Boogeyman onto the Harper family after he hangs himself in a closet after venting his frustrations.
The family tries to resume their normal routine, but odd things start happening. Sawyer has visions of a strange creature under her bed, while Sadie finds mold growing throughout the house. Sawyer’s sister Sadie doesn’t initially believe what she hears from her. They go to see their therapist, Dr. Weller (LisaGay Hamilton), to talk about their grief at their mother’s passing. Sawyer sees the monster again during the session, and her panic causes her to pee on the bed. Sadie and Sawyer are disturbed by the open closet doors and unusual happenings. Sadie, who believes there may be a link between the occurrence and Lester’s suicide, continues to be terrified alongside Sawyer.
Sadie is motivated to find out more by her own curiosity and worry. She investigates the Billings family and listens to Lester’s therapy CD before finding the family’s abandoned home. Sadie goes inside and runs upon Lester’s ex-wife, Rita (Marin Ireland), who tells her that the Boogeyman is to blame for the deaths of their children. According to Rita, the monster takes pleasure in playing with its victims by imitating them and attacking them at night. Light is the sole weapon against the Boogeyman. Sadie runs away in terror as Rita apparently shoots at the Boogeyman she sees behind her.
Sadie has a terrifying dream about the Boogeyman while the mold begins to spread. Sadie eventually convinces Will to leave her mother’s art cabinet alone as their interactions grow more heated. Sadie seems to have a spiritual meeting with her mother, who leads her to an ancient lighter in the basement. Sadie tells her best friend Bethany (Madison Hu[) everything and Bethany plans a girls’ night at Sadie’s place. Sadie coughs up Sawyer’s missing teeth at the party, confirming her worst nightmare was not a figment of her imagination. Bethany’s friends play a prank on Sadie by locking her in the art closet, where she has an encounter with the Boogeyman. The girls start fighting and eventually run away from Sadie’s house. Meanwhile, the creature strikes Sawyer and seriously injures her by throwing her through a television.
Sadie gets a message from Rita at the hospital, telling her that she may have finally found a method to put an end to the Boogeyman. Sadie hurries to Rita’s residence, which has been sprung as a trap. Sadie is unaware of Rita’s plans to use her as bait when she betrays her. The Boogeyman appears, sets off the trap, yet lives to murder Rita. Sadie gets away and goes back to her house. Sadie gets a call from Will, who wants to know where she is, but she and Will are already back at the house. Will and Sawyer are attacked by the Boogeyman, who then forces them inside the house. When Sadie gets there, she finds Sawyer hiding and he tells her that the monster carried their dad down to the basement.
The showdown culminates in a brawl in the Harpers’ cellar. Sadie, Sawyer, and their devastated dad, Will, resist the monster. Sadie uses an aerosol can and her mother’s lighter to set fire to the Boogeyman. The family is able to leave their burning home once the monster is vanquished.
