I agree with the person who called it "mediocre, but entertaining"
26 August 2014 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

Released to video in 2008, "Boogeyman 3" takes place at a university in Northern California, (although it was shot in Sofia in Western Bulgaria). Audrey (Nikki Sanderson), the daughter of Dr. Allen (Tobin Bell) from the previous film, is harassed by an unseen entity in her dorm, which she believes is "the boogeyman," a malevolent spirit intent on killing as many as possible. Her best friend, Sarah (Erin Cahill), is a psych major who tries to help Audrey whereupon she catches a frightening glimpse of the boogeyman and people start mysteriously dying. Sarah tries to warn everyone in the dorm to GET OUT.

Like "Boogeyman 2," this third installment in the low-budget series is limited by its one-dimensional setting -- about half the movie was shot at a dull dorm lobby and the rest in rooms nearby, plus a couple outside scenes. As such, the characters and their story HAVE to work or the movie will bomb. The results are not great, but it's marginally better than the previous film, largely due to a decent assortment of females and the great look of the boogeyman himself (itself?) -- it appears as a tall thin man with long scraggly hair, a black gown and a hideous face.

As far as the female cast goes, Cahill is solid as the protagonist and Sanderson is effective as Dr. Allen's daughter. There are a couple of other quality females on hand, including cameos.

Being a horror-on-campus film, it's reminiscent of the two "Decoys" movies and "Urban Legends: Final cut," so if you like those types of films you might like "Boogeyman 3," but – to me – it's the least of these. Like I said, the setting is too one-dimensional, but there are other flaws. For instance, most of the male characters are weak, with the exception of Sarah's psych professor from the radio show, and the blood that flows down walls and fills the floors looks more like cherry Icee fluid than actual blood.

Still, "Boogeyman 3" delivered just enough for me to give it a weak thumbs up. Aside from the women and the look of the boogeyman, I like the angle that the monster feeds on people's belief to manifest in the physical realm, as well as the Christ figure at the end.

The film runs 94 minutes.

GRADE: B- (because I'm in a good mood)
