CUCUY: THE BOOGEYMAN
First look at the upcoming SyFy original.


A small town is ravaged by a series of unexplained child abductions in SyFy Original Cucuy: The Boogeyman, a supernatural thriller based around the Mexican legend of a creature that preys on children.

"As the Cucuy, the mythical Mexican Boogeyman known for preying on misbehaving children, we chose to revolve the story around a troubled teen currently on house arrest," says director Peter Sullivan.  "We shot in an abandoned neighbourhood on the site of a former state hospital in Pomona, California. The facility, no longer in use, provided an additional uneasy quality to the film’s overall aesthetic."

Cucuy: The Boogeyman premieres on SyFy October 13th.

Take a look at a sneak peek clip and a batch of images below.


The official synopsis reads:

The October movie exclusive to SyFy begins when the local police department finds itself off guard as the town is hit by a series of unexplainable child abductions. With no witnesses, no evidence, and no discernible connection between the missing children, the local Sheriff (Charmed's Brian Krause) has reached a dead end. Riverdale star Marisol Nichols is cast as beleaguered, widowed mother, Rebecca, who is monitoring daughter Sofia, portrayed by sensational Jearnest Corchado, who with her younger sister, Amelia (Bella Stine) is stuck under house arrest. With plenty of free time on her hands and nothing else better to do, Sofia begins a daily ritual of spying on her immediate neighbors, including Murphy (Pedro Correa), her former classmate and crush; and her mysterious new neighbor Boyd (Jack Erdie). 

Sofia finds that her bedroom window provides the perfect place from which to investigate the mysterious disappearances. Her touching relationship with her younger, hearing-impaired sister provides much of the film's heart, especially when the latter finds herself targeted by the supernatural terror. Suddenly their mother (Nichols), already working double shifts to keep a roof over their heads, has to confront a very different type of challenge.

Is it possible that the Cucuy has come to Glimmer Peak?
