Audience Reviews for The Boogeyman (Stephen King's The Boogeyman)

Not because it's a college short film, but because: a) it butchered possibly Stephen King's best short story & b) as a film alone it doesn't really make any sense the acting left something to be desired too and I really found the music annoying. The main protagonist (Lester Billings) was interesting but I was unsure if this was a good or bad performance, I want to say good but the direction was bad and the effects were cheesy thus bringing down the actor. Too bad. Final verdict: Stay away from the film. Read the book.
