Gerard Lough has beautifully portrayed a therapy-session which keeps the viewer at the edge of his seat
31 August 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Why this film: It's been a couple of years ago that the short story 'The Boogeyman' was adapted as a film. In fact, Jeff Schiro's film from 1982 was one of the very first dollarbabies that were made. Finally, nearly 30 years later, there's a new adaptation of this chilling story.

My opinion: Gerard Lough is an Irish filmmaker, which becomes apparent once the film starts: all actors speak in an Irish accent. It took a while to get used to, but soon you'll realise the conversation between Andrew and his psychiatrist is well understandable. The film consists mainly from Andrew telling his story. At first from the chair, but later also through a voice-over, which brings slightly more action (and diversity) on screen. The boogeyman doesn't get much time on-screen, but you'll feel his presence all the time: those unfamiliar with the story will wonder multiple times if the boogeyman is real or just a delusion from the quite stressed out Andrew. The film has some surprising camera angles, which keeps the viewer involved with the story, despite the lack of action. Luckily the director succeeds the long monologue with shots of Andrew searching his house for the boogeyman. My biggest concern is that the film doesn't have very much action or special effects. Still, Gerard Lough has beautifully portrayed a therapy-session which keeps the viewer at the edge of his seat.

Ending Score: 7,8
