A bloated 86 minutes of overzealous spookiness.

This film does cause shivers, creeps, scares, and jumps.

For a good, healthy PG-13 scare, Boogeyman is fun for the whole family -- just don't bring kids who are too young.

So boring, derivative and patently inane that hate is entirely too strong an emotion to attribute to it. You're either in the target demographic or you're not.
| Original Score: .5/4

Teenagers will probably have a blast with the cheap scares and simplistic story, but for horror veterans or those looking for something new, this is not the film to see.

Director Kay provides the trappings, but if you want horror, you'll need to bring your own.

Boogeyman is that bull's eye example which begins its immediate downfall once Barry Watson of "7th Heaven" misfortune appears on screen.

Fright fans expecting anything more than the occasional jolt will be sorely disappointed.

I spent most of the movie struggling not to throw something at the screen or disrupt the other patrons by screaming in frustration.

O título brasileiro desta produção (O Pesadelo) sintetiza perfeitamente o que significa a experiência de ser obrigado a assisti-la.

A bland affair with none of the imagination that distinguishes the best horror movies.

Confusing, badly written, poorly acted horror film that trots out a few clichés and eventually throws some semi-decent effects at them, in the mistaken belief that the audience won't be bored to tears.

There is not a scare to be found.

A humourless trudge through haunted house cliches, it's unlikely to scare anyone old enough to get past the box office.

It uses every canted angle and cartoonish zoom from Sam Raimi's Evil Dead handbook, but the comatose screenplay just makes the stylish gymnastics look desperate.

There is nothing going on during these 86 minutes except a studio gunning for quick kill at the opening weekend box office.

winningly combines the creaking ambiguities and psychological chills of They with terrain more familiar from a haunted house movie.
