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.

The (at present) only other review of this film by G. Schneider is not for "The Boogey Man," a 1980 horror film, but for "The Boogie Man Will Get You," apparently a comedy film starring Boris Karloff among others.

Be that as it may, the two-star rating he gives the film is one that I will not contest. "The Boogey Man" 1980-horror film happens to be a bit rubbish. To summarize the plot, two children, a boy and a girl, are mistreated (the boy more so) by their mother's new boyfriend, and the boy murders him with a knife. Twenty years on, the young man does not speak, and both he and his sister seem haunted by the event. On re-visiting the scene of the murder, the now-young woman sees the murdered man in the mirror and breaks it, apparently "setting him free" and allowing him, mediated by shards of the mirror, to commit murders.

It's really not that spectacular: the stilted acting and a tacky 1980s soundtrack certainly don't improve things. Its interest is mostly historical - the film was one of the UK's non-prosecuted "Video Nasties." Even on the most base level however - gore effects - the film is not phenomenal, and the status as a Nasty likely stemmed from the fact that children were involved in so much of the goings on.

I add a final note for obsessive Video Nasty completists, and preface this note with a confession: I only did some very basic "research" involving mostly Wikipedia and three-year-old forums, because I did not think the film deserved much scholarly effort. Anyone who does want to do actual research can confirm or deny a supposition to the effect that there is a scene involving a woman cutting off her shirt that is missing from some cuts. Wikipedia says the 1992 Vipco release had 44 seconds cut, with an uncut release in 2000.
