Storyline

A single dad cop in a small town and his female partner are called to the scene of the death of a mean recluse. A number of bizarre deaths, including teens, begin to occur at the hands of a big disfigured "monster". Eventually it is learned that the policeman's partner is the estranged daughter of the dead man and that the "monster" is actually a demonic form of "Cain" of Cain and Abel of the bible, who has needed a "brother" to be his keeper since he killed Abel. Who will be his next keeper? Written by Matt Sands

For a Syfy film, was very good!
29 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Boogeyman" directed by Jeffery Lando was far, far better than expected. Most syfy original movies leave me wondering what has happened to the film industry but this particular movie was very enjoyable.

Although the script could have been better, the actors did the best an actor could do with what they were given. The two brothers (played by Gabriel Steele and Danny Horn) shared an excellent chemistry on screen and are definitely ones to watch for the future. For his age, Steele came across relaxed and professional on screen and Horn (who studied at CSSD, after doing a little research) had a fab American accent. Steele and Horn definitely lead the movie excellently.

The actual boogeyman monster was fun to watch and the brutal deaths did not come across as scary but were still great fun to watch. The CGI boogey head was very cool too! Some might instantly disregard this movie because of its syfy origin and its genre. But what you have to remember is that it is a fantasy horror and should not be taken seriously. Sit back and enjoy it, if you like the genre. You won't be disappointed! Loved it! :)
