I got an interesting press release just now. It's about a new Dollar Baby based on King's story The Boogeyman made by Irish film-maker Gerard Lough and starring Simon Fogarty and Michael Parle. And if you ask me, this photo looks very promising...
Here is the entire press release:
Based on the short story by Stephen King, THE BOOGEYMAN is an ambitious short film directed by Irish film-maker Gerard Lough and starring Simon Fogarty and Michael Parle.
When Andrew Billings (Fogarty) goes to see a psychologist to explain how an evil creature that lives in his closet is responsible for the deaths of his three children he is met with scepticism. But as the story progresses, both Dr Harper (Parle) and the audience will start to consider the possibility that this "boogeyman" is real after all.
The film has intricate visual effects that are CGI as well as in camera. It also feature excellent make up effects by one of the best artists in Ireland - Julie Ann Ryan. This combined with a faithful adaption of King's much loved source material, strong performance, stunning visuals and a creepy electronic score will make for a very memorable 30 minute movie which will be shown at film festival all over the world.
The trailer will be online in HD on July 12th.
