R.Lopez6This movie is something of an underrated film in the horror genre, it was actually much, much, much better than I thought. You see I don';t usually watch PG-13 horror due to the fact that it is usually is bland , cheesy, contrived, over rated and over hyped. This film was none of those, Boogeyman, or as I like to call it The Boogeyman is a very suspenseful, dark and foreboding Psychological horror thriller. This film was very good for five of reasons. 1) It didn't use an abundant of CGI or gore to tell it' story. 2) it thought out it's story and characters reasonable well. 3). 4) it use old school techniques(which I love more than the new way of horror story telling .) and it uses it so well to bring out the very dark and scary nature of the legend of the monstrous Boogeyman. 5) It pulls no punches when it comes to telling horror, it get's in your head and just won't leave even after the film is over. Boogeyman wasn't Halloween(1978) or Dracula(1931) scary, but it was scary none the less. It's style and means of scaring you were conventional and old school and that was something that shocked me. You don't see that in a modern horror film. And that makes this film a stand out among them; I mean I've seen Rob Zombie's Halloween( I call it suckloween), I've seen Turistas( I call it dumbristas) but this is the first film since Secret Window that I'm proud to call a good horror movie. Barry Watson( You may know him as Jessica Beil's boyfriend on 7th Heaven.) plays a distraught and disturbed young man who has to come to terms with the childhood fear that has afflicted him all his life.He plays this part relatively well and does good in what he is suppose to do. Emily Deschanel was alright, she wasn't horrible but she wasn't good either. She kind of lags in the the emotional depth department and made her kind of a drag to watch. But besides that they both hold up nicely in this. Boogeyman is not an oscar worthy film but what it is is a great scare machine that doesn't quit from the opening scene until the closing, and it delivers an effected psychological look into the paranoiac fear that most people have of The Bogeyman and the dark. All in all Boogeyman wasn't a bad film and if your kind you will see it as well. It isn't a gore machine like you would expect, or like but it is a very effective movie in it's own right. Boogeyman gives you one wild and nightmarish ride for your money and I can promise you. You won't be disappointed with the outcome. All in all Boogeyman is one door you do want to open.… Expand
