For fifteen years, everybody told me I was making it up. Everyone said it was just a story. There's no such thing as the Boogeyman. But I was right.

In the theatrical version, after all of the credits have rolled there is a scene shot from inside of a closet looking out into a darkened room with a boy sleeping. The boy awakes and asks his mother (not pictured) to shut the closet door. Footsteps are heard as she approaches the door, but as she closes it, there is a huge slam noise and the screen cuts to a blue screen displaying, "This film was rated PG-13". See more »
Concept: It's the Boogeyman, you don't get a better concept then that. ever. It's also impossible to pull off... or IS it ?
Story: Pretty good, get weird near the middle too....
Acting: Pretty good. I think the lead guy did a pretty good Job, so good I thought he was the Nutboy from Freddy vs Jason (who is REALLY good IMHO). There's character aspects that it's hard to tell if they're intentional or not. I.E: Stars girlfriend being an idiot ... but it works. Some parts come off as trying too hard.. but there's no mindless screaming.
Atmosphere: They did a pretty good job, but blow it on cheap jumps... then bring it back up , then blow it on a jump ... it gets to the point where instead of getting into the atmosphere you wait for the next jump. BUT, and this is huge... It doesn't waste the bad guy at stupid moments. It keeps it till the end. I'll give 'em that.
Camera: Nice angles , great work , EXCEPT for when important!? "Bad things" happen then the camera just spins around like crazy. I know what they were going for: tension, Chaos , confusion, vulnerability.. and it worked.. the first time... then the head aches start.
SFX: Pretty awesome except for the Boogeyman.. seriously CGI DOESN'T WORK FOR HORROR !!!! O.k, for touch ups, atmosphere etc it CAN work... but not for the Bad guy...
Physics Or Film Reality: actually confused a lot of people.. personally I LOVE what they did regarding the reality of the story. they set the rules, and the rules kinda made sense. I'm a little iffy on the ghost thing... but other then that I say good job folks.
Ending: (I mean the ending ending) LAME! , Total tease. I was expecting one more jump since they've been tossing' em in all over... nothing. This was the one part where something extra could've ACTUALLY been useful.
Basically if they didn't over do it on cheap shocks/crazy camera, less cgi for the Boogyman they would've nailed it. But they tried to take on the Boogeyman, that's as ballsy as doing Lovecraft and as near impossible.
