Critic Reviews for Boogeyman
Fright fans expecting anything more than the occasional jolt will be sorely disappointed.
A vaporous and vacuous horror film.
Audience Reviews for Boogeyman
Nothing original and not many scares. Cool to watch around Halloween, but not something I'd recommend considering the acting is pretty shoddy and the narrative is predictable and testing.
Boogeyman is one of those horror films that every critic hated and you end up realizing it's not as bad as what everyone has said it was. This is an average film with a pretty good story, and shouldn't be viewed as the worst horror film. The film is flawed, but there are far worst flicks in the genre than this one. Yes, the film is weak at times, but for the most part, it succeeds at being a mindless horror film, which is what it is. Boogeyman is not to be taken so seriously. There's a decent cast of actors that grace this film but the film does suffer from a somewhat lacking script and relies too much on special effects, which if toned down slightly would have a better scar factor on the viewer. There is tension found within this film, but it never really is truly scary. On a production design standpoint, the film looks excellent and has incredible sets, especially the main characters house. Overall Boogeyman is a pleasant time waster not to be taken seriously, if you do that you may just have a mindless fun viewing experience. Boogeyman is lots of fun from start to finish, and is the perfect film for you to simply shut your brain and have a mindless film night. I really don't see the hatred towards this film, sure it's not the best, but it definitely is better than a lot of films that are currently being put out nowadays. Never truly scary, Boogeyman has plenty of tense moments to keep you interested. A much underrated film, one that should not be quickly dismissed.
Well I always check under my bed. There are far worst creatures than boogeyman. This was scary indeed. There were some moments that made me jumped literally. Though I would say my scare level wasn't high enough as I could go to sleep peacefully after watching this at mid night. I would say this was decent. Mysterious. Confusing. Frightening. Everything I could think of (except humor). Can't wait to see the second part. Hope that will be better than this.
