Rating: “Phtbtbtbt!”
Year: 1994

Plot: Some random girl (Annie) has dreams and visions. A paper doll psychiatrist hypnotizes her with his inanity and she relives some new murders and the majority of the original film.

Review: You know the saying ‘you’re not even a has-been, you’re a never was!’? Well, this is a not even ‘straight-to-video’, but a ‘never-even-went-to-video’. Video tape yourself watching Boogeyman 1 and, apparently, you can make it in Hollywood… I write this as I’m watching it. That’s how uninterested I am. Most bad movies are at least good for a laugh, but sitting through this just makes me angry. It’s like forcing myself to watch the end of a game where my Bucs are down 49-0 at the end of the third quarter. An underestimation of the percentage of this film that is comprised of stock footage of the original “Boogeyman” would be 50. Much of it with either a play by play of the pictures on the screen or simply crappy music overlays. Another 30% of the film is a single 2 minute sequence played repeatedly and in slow motion. Some scenes are inexplicably in sepia-tone. Quizzical jump-cuts, inaudible conversation, and voiceovers abound. Seriously, this is quite possibly the worst movie I’ve ever seen.

Notable scene: The one that flashes back to the first movie (i.e. this movie)
Gore:          Buckets
Sex/Nudity: Nipples
(by the movie’s conclusion, you’ll be able to sketch them perfectly from memory alone)
Scariness:   Screams
(nary a yipe)
Campiness: Donald Pleasances
(camp hasn’t started yet)
Creepiness: Cellar Doors

Munchy Suggestion: You’ll feel queasy and probably shouldn’t eat.
For More: Information than you require about the flick, look here: IMDB. It’s so bad that a wiki entry doesn’t exist!
