    While stylishly filmed and edited, Boogeyman is filled with every imaginable fright cliche... It's like a meal consisting entirely of airy hors d'oeuvres. show more

    It suffers from a lack of genuine chills or suspense that renders its slight virtues rather moot. show more

    An otherwise passable horror film that delivers more than enough cheap thrills to forgive the plot holes. show more
