BOOGEYMAN 2 BOOGEYMAN 2: Sony/Ghost House 2007 color 93m Horror/Thriller Tobin Bell Daniell Savre, Matthew Cohen, David Gallagher, Mae Whitman and Renee 'O' Connor Written by Brain Sieve Directed by Jeff Betancourt N/R contains graphic violence, language, gore, sexuality, nudity and drug use.

The wonderful thing I love about S2DVD sequels of craptacular movies is that you are always so surprised. Wheather it be for the good in which its unintentionally laughable or the other good in which its actually good and your not sure why this film ended up here or the bad in which you just shut it off. Well I must say I found Boogeyman 2 plesantly surprising. Although the first one was not a good movie at all I have to admit that it pretty much scared the crap out of me. So although I can't really recommend that film because most of those scares were due to sound FX I have to say i was a little siked going into this film. one 'o'clock in the a.m. just me and my boy watching with the lights off. And I must say it was pretty darn good. This time around it tells the story of two young kids who see there parents murdered in a hugely grotesque fashion. The brother overcomes his fear of the dark ten years later and leaves the lil sis in a mental institution where all the inmates start dying in relaly brutal ways depending on what there fears are. I won't give anything away but some gimmicks include, roaches, maggots, acid and just crazy buckets of goo. This film is so successful in its execution because it acknowledges its plot and dives headfirst into it. It's gory as hell and offers up everything and hungry horror fan could hope for. There are crazy ass death sequences, gore by the gallon, some T&A plus you get to watch the kid from 7th heaven smoke a joint. And it's actually pretty scary and has...wait for it....wait for it...A pretty good screenplay although it's slightly predictable the performances are pretty good and the twists are quite effective. So conclusion equals crazy gore, lots of scares, hot guys, kick ass heroine, pretty good plot. Kick ass sequel. I can see why it wasn't released in theatres as it would have been trimmed down and not nearly as effective and also because it lacks the professionalism in it's look that even most the bad horror flicks have. But what it lacks for in professionalism it makes up for in sheer spunk. This movie is so friggin fun!

***.5/5
