Boogeyman

Critics Consensus

The plot is been-there done-that generic, and none of the shock effects can do anything to build up suspense.

Despite the reassurances of his mother (Lucy Lawless) that the boogeyman is not real, he is never the same afterward.

    Okay. Not particularly good, but not terrible either. This film is just kind of confusing at times.

    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.

    Pretty fucking awful PG-13 horror. Not scary in the least, and relies far too heavily on jump scares. When the boogeyman is finally revealed the shitty CGI used to create him made me laugh pretty hard. As the movie progresses it gets more and more nonsensical as well. And the ending where we find out the boogeymans weakness made me want to put my head through the screen. Acting is unexceptional. So is the story. There is some good camera work here and there, but thats nowhere near enough to save this forgettable borefest. Don't bother with this one folks.

    The film has a lot of atmosphere early on but the story goes totally no where. The concept is never explained and leaves the viewer with the idea of guessing. The problem is the film doesn't have the strength to pull of such a feat. Barry Watson is well cast and develops a character who is terribly traumatised and quite strong, the problem is the development of a clever film to complement such an intriguing film. The cgi character robs the film of any malice which is a shame as the last 10 mins really offer an intense finale. Good for a night in but sadly not a film deserving Sam raimis attention
