The acting was terrible.

Comment added May 18, 2013 *** When I posted this, the only other review was that by "G. Schneider" referred to in the opening paragraph.

I put it right up there with any of the other chief early 80's classics like "Halloween" or "Friday the 13th."

THE BOOGEY MAN begins w/ a young boy committing a brutal murder (is there any other kind?) w/ a big kitchen knife. Twenty years later, we see the kid all grown up. We know it's him due to the sour look on his face. His name is Willy, and he now lives on a farm, and he speaks to no one. A disturbing letter arrives for Willy and his sister, Lacey. She was there that night 20 years ago. Her therapist (John Carradine!) insists that she return to her childhood home, in order to get over her trauma. She and her husband go there, but instead of recovering, Lacey sees her brother's victim in the mirror. So, she shatters it, and her husband makes her take it home! Lacey's husband pieces the broken mirror back together, all except for one piece, left on the floor of the house they visited. Now, THE BOOGEY MAN is loose! He sets out immediately killing everyone living there. Oh no! Shards of the mirror are on the farm! Here comes THE BOOGEY MAN! Many horrible deaths ensue. Gorehundts will particularly enjoy the "kiss of death" scene! This movie, though cheeezy, gets points for originality. The supernatural angle is interesting, and the use of the mirror is unique. A low-budget creeper worth watching...

...this is a downright creepy and scary film, up until the rotten ending...its a chilling and effective thriller which does borrow heavily from Halloween, but it is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine...however a rotten ending ruins it...this film could have been a great cult classic, but with an ending like that, its just cheesy...

The first time I saw this movie, it gave me chills. I have asked for it in movie places, but no one ever has it or knows what I'm talking about...what a shame. This movie is wonderful and the more you think about it, the scarier it gets. Get the movie and watch late at night all alone...Good night, pleasant dreams.

I wanted this movie so badly that I overlooked the "DV-R manufactured on-demand" aspect of this movie's offering. I'd lowered my guard because I'd already had an okay experience with "ZERO DAY" - another movie produced in this same fashion, and because I had allowed myself to be suckered in by their use of the original poster art for their case cover. And for that misplaced trust, this turned out to be the biggest waste of my hard-earned dollars, and "SYNERGY" should be held accountable for perpetrating this FRAUD on their suckers... I mean, "customers"!!!

First of all, with the exception of the front cover art (for which they'd done a very p!$$-poor job of reproducing), they'd mistitled and supplied the incorrect synopsis for this movie everywhere else (on the back & on the spine of the case, and even on the disc itself), misidentifying this movie with the Boris Karloff / Peter Lorre spoof, "THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU." Thankfully, they did not make the mistake of recording that movie onto the DV-R... but they may as well should have!

The movie "SYNERGY" recorded has absolutely NOTHING leading-in to the main presentation... not even a bare-bones opening menu! -- it just starts playing! And what plays should be CRIMINAL, because what "SYNERGY" has done is ripped this movie from a poor print VHS tape, presenting a fuzzy, washed-out movie in "full screen" aspect ratio! (something they didn't bother to tell us in the "Product Details" section)

I could've done *MUCH* better just ripping this thing from a pirate download, which is sadly and regrettably exactly what I resorted to in response to this travesty! It's B.S.

Dear Diary,

I don't understand people. I never did. When I was a child, I saw my mother making love with a man in the normal fashion: holding a bottle of spirits and laughing while her boyfriend put her stocking on his head and scowled at her. After he discovered me peeping he tied me to a large bed, as is the tradition in our small farming community. My sister, too young to understand these traditions, freed me with a knife from the kitchen. Conditions being what they were, I was obliged to murder my mother's boyfriend with the knife she brung, again, compelled by tradition. I did my duty, making sure that my sister was watching through a mirror, assuring that my mother's boyfriend's murdered spirit would be forever locked inside that mirror.

I don't think my sister ever really understood the traditions of our people, because she acts like she doesn't know why I don't speak. I don't speak because if'n I do, we will be haunted by the demon WE created that night. I try to work hard and stay away from women who want to have sex with me for fear of being, myself, locked into a mirror. Lately though, my hard work has toned my body making it muscular and irresistible to women who want to have sex and get me locked in a mirror.

Life on the farm is tough. Life as a virgin mute is rough. But I'll take life as a virgin mute on the farm over being haunted by a boogey man or being locked in a mirror and becoming a boogey man any day of the week.
