Still No Boogeyman?

Hey! At least this is a step up from the first film!I know you’ve all be waiting very patiently for the sequel to 2005’s Boogeyman. Wait, maybe you were really wanting the remake of Lommel’s ’80s horror flick by the same name?

STYD added a fresh batch of stills from Boogeyman 2 and guess what … there’s still no actual Boogeyman in sight. This may not be the case in the actual movie, but you see … this was the problem with the original movie, it had no concrete antagonist. In the end of the original Boogeyman the evil tormentor of children was all in the mind of the lead character, or that’s what I gathered after watching it in a theatre full of screaming 13 year olds. It is difficult to process thoughts clearly when every stinger is met with a high pitched wail.

Moving on. From what I’ve gathered this DVD follow-up is actually somewhat better than its predecessor. While that isn’t exactly a big pat on the back, you won’t have to find out the results in a movie theatre patronized by shrinking girls and some questionable guys. No, you can find out for yourself in the comfort of your own home on January 8, 2008.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
