‘The Boogeyman’ Director Would Love To Make a Dinosaur Horror Movie, and Somebody Should Let Him

Sitting comfortably at 66 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, the highest of any Stephen King adaptation that wasn’t a remake or a sequel since 2007, The Boogeyman is making waves in the horror universe despite going against huge blockbuster releases like Fast X, The Little Mermaid, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Director Rob Savage, for one, seems absolutely delighted. And who wouldn’t be? This is his first big break since 2020’s Host, which went down as an absolute treat with a mind-blowing 99 percent on RT.

Collaborating with Stephen King certainly gets you halfway, but Savage’s undeniable creativity has made him one to watch in the horror sphere. James Wan and Jordan Peele should be shaking in their boots right about now, we’re just saying. We Got This Covered sat down with Rob Savage to discuss cliché jump scares, Jurassic Park, and the success of The Boogeyman. If he ever seeks to deviate from the traditional kind of spooky, there are certainly a few tricks up Savage’s sleeve for weird and wonderful horror crossovers.

Both Savage and one of our own, Scott Campbell, discussed the possibility of a “scary” dinosaur movie, though not in the suspense-thriller kind of way, more in the Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey kind of way. Savage cites Spanish director J.A. Bayona as his inspiration to bring a horror-centric dinosaur movie to life. We’re essentially looking at a more blood-soaked version of Jurassic Park, which doesn’t sound too hard to pull off.

I look forward to the day when your $200 million, three-hour dinosaur movie finally comes to fruition.

“Well, you know, you could do a kind of like, properly scary dinosaur movie. I know J.A. Bayona did the kind of ‘dinosaur haunted house movie’ entry into the franchise, but something that’s kind of big and survivalist, that could be kind of interesting. Like, more of a definitively horror take.”

Despite Host being an absolute show-stopper, Savage’s second attempt at a breakthrough horror — in collaboration with Blumhouse — was a rather huge disaster. Dashcam‘s controversial lead, Annie, came under fire during the movie’s theatrical run, and many critics cited her character as a turn-off. We’re not too certain what the future holds for Savage, but if The Boogeyman is anything to go by, he’ll be enjoying the status of “household name” soon enough.
