Enjoyed this film....
13 November 2005 | by rebeljennSee all my reviews

Although I don't remember much of this film to write a really good and helpful review of it, I do remember that I particularly enjoyed this film when I was younger. I probably caught it in my early teens or just before, and I watched it several times with my brothers (who are around my age). We couldn't get enough of this film.

It was not a scary film, but it was particularly comical and downright silly. It had something to do about a house that the family moved into which was haunted by 'Mr. Boogedy'. The first film was about Mr. Boogedy. The second was about him getting a wife, and it is called 'Bride of Boogedy' if you want to key that into the IMDb.

The catchphrase of Mr. Boogedy was 'Boogedy Boogedy Boo!' It was a very silly film, but we really enjoyed it as children. It is just right because it was not particularly frightening, and it is a good film for older children to watch around Halloween.
