Boogeyman II (2007)
Director: Jeff Betancourt
Main Stars: Danielle Savre, Matt Conen, Chrissy Calhoun, Mae Whitman, Renee O’Connor, Tobin Bell
Storyline: A young woman now has the fear of the legendary boogeyman and has checked herself into a mental facility to get over her fears.
Review (Spoils): Young Laura (Danielle Savre) has had this demon like fear of the boogeyman.To overcome the fear, she is instated into a mental hospital (big surprise here) as she tries to battle and overcome her fears. She has had this fear since she was child so what makes sense but to check yourself in right? What makes things worse for Laura is the staff are all morons and the doctor is scary as hell (Tobin Bell). As she goes through the change of events and fears and meets more people with fears and phobias such as germs and the dark, we learn that the boogeyman has followed her there.
If you have watched the first one, well god bless you as it was not very good. I believe I gave it 2 beers because it was so damn painful of CGI. This film goes a totally different direction and which to me is a good thing. Now is this film amazing no not really as you feel a tad disappointed with the outcome as it is literally just a chasing game and follows a bit of the Nightmare on Elm Street vibe minus the wise cracks. Yes, there is some skin in the film and even some decent blood and gore without the crap of lame CGI. But it still did not deliver the full goods.
Rating: This film is hard to rate and why without spoiling it, but the acting was not bad as I have seen a hell of a lot worse. Not as supernatural film as you would think but much better than the first film as it was complete garbage. You have some nudity and some cool death scenes and I believe there might even be an ode to Saw with Tobin Bell in this film.
5/10 Beers! Yacker
