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

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

The movie's worth a look for cheap thrills, but it's no classic.

Compared to recent movies like Alone in the Dark, Hide and Seek, White Noise and The Grudge, this film is freakin' Gone With the Wind.

Boogeyman manages to make you do what films like Jeepers Creepers and Darkness Falls wouldn't let you do: believe.

Some fascinatingly original twists that play with time and space keep the tension ratcheting up till the ending.

Once Emily Deschanel, older sister of Elf's Zooey, steps on screen to provide Tim with a formidable female co-star, the film finds its rhythm.

If you're 12 years old, or if you scare easily, Boogeyman is not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.

A bloated 86 minutes of overzealous spookiness.

Few films benefited that much from being so short.

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.
