The Boogeyman tells the story of high school Sadie Harper and her younger sister Sawyer who are reeling from the recent death of their mother and aren’t getting much support from their father, Will, a therapist who is dealing with his own pain. However, things turn from bad to worse when a desperate patient unexpectedly shows up at their home seeking help and leaves behind a terrifying supernatural entity that preys on families and feeds on the suffering of its victims.
