At the very least, this compilation may turn a few sane people on to slasher movies, and I consider that a good thing indeed.

An interesting release -- even if it is just a novelty.

Audience Reviews for Boogeymen

Decent little clip slow featuring most of the famous slashers. We have Freddy, Jason, Chucky, and more, plus some lesser-known killers like the Dentist. The clips they chose for each killer seem alright, but a few had better scenes in their actual films. For some reason Jack Frost is mention on the credits but is only seen as a easter egg on the DVD. I do wish it was a bit more documentary-styled, but it does give a good taste on horror icons.

It's cool for what it is. If you're unfamiliar with the slasher sub-genre, then you should check this out to get a taste of several series. Some of the choices on here are kind of obvious like A Nightmare on Elm Street. But there's also The Ugly, which not many people are familiar with.

This is a compilation of the scariest boogeymen in horror. While some the choices here are not scary at all, such as Leprechaun and Chucky and the fisherman and ghost face; this is a cool compilation. Among the scariest boogeymen featured on this DVD, there's Pinhead, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Candyman, The Tall man, Norman Bates, Jason Voorhees and last but certainly not least; Michael Myers. Each Serial Killer has their own section with trivia and features memorable scenes from their respective film. It's a cool little compilation to have in your horror collection. This compilation does have cool extras, games and film trivia that will probably appeal to most horror fans. But, I found that Boogeymen was also flawed they could've taken their time into creating something truly special for the horror fan, but this collection touched only the tip of the iceberg as far as these icons are concerned. Boogeymen is a well assembled disc, but it misses the mark in a few areas. I would recommend new fans of Horror to check this one out for sure. At the same time, it's a great introduction to the BEST and at times worst boogeymen in horror (Leprechaun and Blade from Puppetmaster) But the essential Boogeymen are here in one collection. More work could have been put into it, but as far as I'm concerned this is a worthy watch for teenagers who think that Horror remakes are the real deal, viewing this would probably get them more into old school horror, something that should be mandatory for every up and coming horror fan.
