Yeah, it's dumb, and it takes a long time to get to scenes that amount to anything other than cheap scares. But Boogeyman is not entirely artless.

Is it over? Watson is asked. Yeah, it's over, he says, possibly aware that he's commenting on his acting career.

Bereft of even the slightest hint of style, creativity or originality, Boogeyman is endlessly boring, blatantly nonsensical and, frankly, absolutely worthless.

A vaporous and vacuous horror film.

Instead of heightening one's fear of closets, it simply creates an overwhelming urge to head straight for the nearest theater door.

A thriller that is so generic it can only be dispensed if your doctor checked the 'generic OK' box on the prescription.

If Boogeyman signals more films like this to follow, there are far worse nightmares out there to come than whatever is lurking in your closet.

The not-too-frightening, plodding Boogeyman proves that major Hollywood studios like to dump all their stinkers at the beginning of the year.

It squanders a promising plot about child abduction, preferring to go the literal route of chasing a spectral troublemaker with a bad case of claustrophobia.

...expose the skeletons in Boogeyman's closet-you will certainly come across the bare bones because there's no real meat to this thrill-seeking thud

The tooth fairy in a tutu is scarier than the ill-conceived Boogeyman.
