The Boogeyman

Don’t look under the bed.


The Boogeyman
Lester Billings talks to his doctor about the “murders” of his three young children, describing the events of the past several years. His first two children died mysteriously of apparently unrelated causes (diagnosed as crib death and convulsions, respectively) when left alone in their bedrooms. The only commonalities were that the children cried “Boogeyman!” before being left alone, and the closet door was ajar after discovering their corpses, even though Billings is certain the door was shut.

98 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Violence, Drug abuse, Horror, Prejudice).

Tomatometer quote iconThe Boogeyman might fall short of its terrifying source material, but a spooky atmosphere and some solid performances help keep the chills coming.
