Still No Boogeyman?
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.
