The movie The Boogeyman has a horror story with a shocking ending and the young actress Vivien Lyra Blair wanted to give it meaning.
Attention SPOILERS. The Boogeyman is about a family experiencing great loss who is suddenly harassed by a terrifying creature. In the end, Sadie (Sophie Thatcher) and Sawyer (Vivien Lyra Blair) team up to defeat the evil creature in the basement and save their father Will (Chris Messina). Although they are successful, in the last scene Sadie hears a voice after therapy.
The actress Vivien Lyra Blair, who starred in the Kenobi series as young Leia, in this film she plays the youngest daughter named Sawyer and in a recent interview with TD, she reveals what most excited her about the film: “I think the basement stuff, because that’s definitely the thing that needs to be kept secret the most… Because that’s when you see the monster, that’s when you really understand what it is, what it’s doing, because you get little bits of information throughout the movie. But it’s really where it all comes together. You see him, and they’re fighting him, and he dies, and that’s it. Well, I don’t think he dies, but he gets badly injured, that’s one way of putting it. He moves. (laughs) So, it’s really something that brings it all together.”
The monster is still alive.
Vivien Lyra Blair is clear that they defeat The Boogeyman but they don’t end him for good, as she said: “And then that final scene when they’re in the therapist’s office, I think it’s a horror movie that ends with The Boogeyman still being there. and he is not dead. That’s a horror movie way to end it. So, I think it was also cool to say: Of course.”
“I have seen many versions. I think this was by far the scariest because most variations on The Boogeyman tend to cast him as some sort of shadow. Maybe like a shadow with pointy eyes. And that’s what you see for most of the movie until you actually see it in the basement. And it’s so scary and so gross.”
“I really don’t know what I was expecting, because I’ve seen it in so many ways. I have seen him only as a man, I have seen him as shadows, I have seen him as a real spider. And even though this has versions of it, like he’s in human form, he walks like some kind of spider, there are certain incorporations that they use from all those other stories other than the bogeyman stories, I think this is definitely the scariest. There are so many additional components that are so gross.”
