Short, silly, and slightly scary
13 October 2020 | by cricketbatSee all my reviews

Mr. Boogedy has a handful of suspenseful moments, yet the silly tone keeps it from being too scary. The effects are also fairly impressive for a Disney made-for-TV movie. This is a short film made for kids, but it's a good introduction to the horror genre.
