Every culture has one - The horrible monster fueling young children's nightmares. But for Tim, the BOGEYMAN still lives in his memories as a creature that devoured his father 16 years earlier. Is the BOGEYMAN real? Or did Tim make him up to explain why his father abandoned his family? The answer lies hidden behind every dark corner and half-opened closet of his childhood home - A place he must return to and face the chilling unanswered questions... Does the BOGEYMAN really exist?

In the theatrical version, after all of the credits have rolled there is a scene shot from inside of a closet looking out into a darkened room with a boy sleeping. The boy awakes and asks his mother (not pictured) to shut the closet door. Footsteps are heard as she approaches the door, but as she closes it, there is a huge slam noise and the screen cuts to a blue screen displaying, "This film was rated PG-13". See more »
Yep, it's official. Overproduced garbage is what Hollywood considers horror thrillers these days. Another in the long line of generously funded but substantially lacking horror films somehow finds distribution, this time it's "Boogeyman".
A young man must content with his childhood fears of the Boogeyman, who has seemingly "stolen" his father and others close to him. Without giving anything away, that's the extent of the nonexistent plot. There are no surprised or character development, which culminates in a ho-hum ending.
As others have pointed out, the director must've thought he was filming a video for MTV, which camera swoops and shakes (not to mention loud bangs) passing for scares.
Save your money and your time and rent a low-budget horror film instead, the reward will be much greater.
