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

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

A vaporous and vacuous horror film.

None of this makes any sense whatsoever.

It suffers from a lack of genuine chills or suspense.

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.

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.

With all the movies out there, this is the last one you should pick.
