Boogeyman (2005)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper
06.23.05

Boogeyman (2005) I am sure we are all familiar with stories of the Boogeyman from our childhood. Whether he was hiding in the closet, or under the bed... it could be a fairly frightening experience for a small child. Maybe we can say the same about this movie. It was not very scary for me... but maybe some small child somewhere was wetting his pants watching this. My pants were dry. A man who during his childhood stood witness to the Boogeyman taking his father. Noone believed him and everyone said his father just walked out on him and his mom. His mother didn't take it all very well, so he moved in with his uncle. Fast forward 15 years into the future and this youngman is still afraid of closets. After learning of his mother's death, he goes back to his hometown and plans to spend a pseudo therapeutic night in his old house... hoping to overcome his fears. He finds out that all of his fears are substantiated and that the Boogeyman is real. He must face his fears in order to prevail over them. The premise sounds ok, and it was not all that bad. However, I felt that they tried to use too many cheap scare tactics to get a rise out of the viewer. Sam Raimi was involved in the project, but I also felt like they tried to use too many Evil Dead-like camera angles and movements. The effects were decent but not great. They overused the cheap tactics in this one to make it scary... and I feel like it had the opposite effect. Not a bad movie... and probably worth a rental... just do not expect to be scared... unless you are 10 years old.
