Boogeyman

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Hokey horror flick about a young man (Barry Watson) who has been haunted all his life by memories of a traumatic incident he "witnessed" in his bedroom as a boy -- he is convinced the eponymous evil specter snatched his father -- and who is advised by his psychologist that in order to salvage his sanity, he must prove that the fearful episode was nothing more than a figment of his troubled imagination by spending a night alone in his creepy childhood home. Though not without some mild suspense and popcorn-tossing jolts, the movie, directed by Stephen Kay, is a muddled mess of failed frights, horror-movie cliches and backend-heavy special effects pieced together by a mostly incoherent script. Several sequences of menace, which involve horror-style violence as well as some sexually suggestive scenes, one which contains partial nudity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
