Cucuy: The Boogeyman (Syfy) – Trailer


If you were raised in a Hispanic or Latin American household, chances are high that you were on the receiving end of this threat more than once: “If you don’t behave, El Cucuy is gonna come and get you and take you away – FOREVER!” And it sounds much worse in Spanish, too, especially in abuelita’s craggy voice.

Of course, the most scary part of the threat is that what the Cucuy IS, looks LIKE, or what it will DO to you, is entirely left up to the imagination of the child, making it all the more terrifying since nothing fills in those blanks quicker than a ripe, overactive adrenaline-infused young mind!

Directed by Peter Sullivan (who helmed Stan Lee’s “The Sandman,” SyFy’s runaway hit last October), Cucuy: The Boogeyman is set in fictional Glimmer Peak, the kind of small town where nothing ever happens. When children start disappearing, Sofia (Jearnest Corchado), a rebellious teen under house arrest, begins a daily ritual of spying on her neighbors, including Murphy (Pedro Correa), her former classmate and crush; and her mysterious new neighbor Boyd (Jack Erdie).

Perched at her bedroom window, which gives her the perfect view of the neighborhood, she begins to investigate the mysterious disappearances. Suddenly Sofia and her mother (Marisol Nichols) start to suspect that a legendary evil, a boogeyman known as the Cucuy, might be responsible.
