Well folks, if you ever wondered what the absolute worst video nasty was then you need look no further. Revenge of the Boogeyman is quite simply an awful film. I don't mind poorly executed horror films or absolute trash-fests far from it. But I do mind films that exploit the viewer with little or no pay back. Luckily I was well aware of this bad boy's reputation in advance of seeing it so I was prepared. I had also seen the third film in this franchise Return of the Boogeyman which was truly an even worse excuse for a film. But that doesn't change the fact that this is a terrible movie from an abysmal franchise. Don't get me entirely wrong here; I actually like the original Boogeyman. It's no great shakes but it's entertaining and does the job. Unfortunately it clearly should have ended there as the sequels seem to purely be an excuse of regurgitating the material of that first movie. And this film is a good example of this. The first half is simply made up of flash-backs of scenes taken from part one. This is barely film-making to be honest and director Ulli Lommel should really hang his head in shame but seeing as his franchise has repeated the exact same trick a further two times I suspect he isn't strictly too bothered.
Once we get beyond forty minutes of flash-backs we kick into a new story where Lommel himself plays a director who has been asked to make a film about events depicted in the first movie. Lommel spends a great deal of time railing against Hollywood and how the ungrateful swine there ignore him unfairly. Well to be honest Ulli, on the strength of this movie you can't really say they don't have a bit of a point. The rest of the movie involves the Boogeyman returning and killing various people in what has to be a series of the most stupid death scenes ever conceived for a motion picture. These killings include seminal moments such as death by toothbrush. To be fair, it's the sheer idiocy of these murder scenes that makes this feature even vaguely bearable. They are so stupid they are sort of worth watching. But all things considered, I don't think Revenge of the Boogeyman as a whole is in the least bit worth seeking out. The only reason I can conceivably think you should watch this is if you are attempting to complete the video nasty list. Otherwise please stay away
