The flick starts out on the perfect note with a very slick opening, but steadily declines as it goes. The big problem: the movie never leads anywhere worthwhile (or even anywhere at all). The plot is practically nonexistent, almost nothing is explained, and as far as mindless fun goes, it starts to run out of steam near the middle (but luckily picks up again towards the end). I donít ask for much in a horror movie, just some good scares, a decent plot, and most of all, to be entertained. Half of that was accomplished, but seeing as how I was expecting less than nothing from this film, I was more than content with what I got. Sure, I became a little bored, plus the flick got pretty tedious, but in terms of style, I was never let down for a second. If it wasnít for the Łber-awesome directing/camerawork, I doubt I wouldíve lasted more than twenty minutes through this show without falling asleep. The highlight of the film is, without a doubt, the constant stream of wicked shots, slick zooms, wild setting changes, and eerie surroundings. Even past the point when you finally see the ridiculously lame CGI monster (who wears a vest and pants?), style still prevails. So now that you know what to expect, why not take a chance and rent BOOGEYMAN with some of your pals. If you actually like it, then all is well, and if you donít, you can at least make fun of it (and trust me, youíll get plenty of opportunities). If that doesnít convince you, then try this on for size: he gets into a fight with a coat hanger... and loses.
The Making of Boogeyman (Parts 1 & 2 - 34:43): For reasons I canít explain, they separated this lame featurette into 2 sections. Both parts have just the same amount of film clips, interviews, and a slight hint of behind-the-scenes footage (but barely). If you like hearing people say how wonderful their movie is, then check this out.
Deleted Scenes (6 of them - 12:46): These scenes are pretty much on par with the actual movie, some good, and some bad. Nothing really noteworthy though, but worth a look if you enjoyed the movie.
Alternate Ending (5:58): The only thing that makes this even remotely watchable is to see some of the unfinished CGI. That, and maybe for a laugh, because itís even more insulting to the audiences intelligence than the real ending.
Animatics (3 of them - 9:24): Semi-cool storyboards/animatics, but weíve seen this all before on better movies.
Visual Effects Progressions (4 of them - 4:30): Pretty neat to observe, but thereís a huge step left out between the green screen and the final product stages. Still worth checking out though.
We also get 9 Previews, but no trailer for BOOGEYMAN.
