Bogeyman folklore documentary comes recommended
2 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

YOU CAN'T KILL THE BOGEYMAN: 35 YEARS OF HALLOWEEN is not limited by its ten minute running time, and gives a thorough look into the lore of the "Bogeyman" and its influence around the globe.

Every culture has a bogeyman, and in the United States it happens to be in the form of The Shape... MICHAEL MYERS. This documentary is precise and delivers, with exclusive never-before-seen interviews with George P. Wilbur and Tyler Mane.

Writer/Director Justin Beahm did a fantastic job with this documentary, and I hope he farther explores the concept. I hope to see this on a future HALLOWEEN DVD/Blu-ray release.
