I thought I was watching a special feature when I started this movie, and was surprised that it was the feature. This is not a sequel, this is one of the worst DVDs of all time. Thankfully, I only rented it and am only out the rental cost. Everybody, be warned, you barely see anything of the actual Boogeyman sequel, just scenes in fast motion. There should be some kind of law because this DVD is slickly packaged and is a complete and total rip-off. Everybody involved with the making of this DVD should feel ashamed. Those who bought it deserve their money back.
From the Back Cover
Prepare to be afraid of the dark once again in this outrageous sequel to the 1980 horror classic! Lacey (Suzanna Love), the shaken survivor of a bloody supernatural rampage in the countryside, is flown to Los Angeles where a slick movie producer plans to cash in on her story. At a decadent Hollywood party, plans for the beginning of a new horror movie franchise are torn asunder when a fragment of the original haunted mirror turns these hotshot movers and shakers into screamers and quakers! Packed with gruesome deaths and tongue-in-cheek humor, Boogeyman 2 turns the horror genre on its head (years before Scream) with a wild postmodern twist. Bolt your doors, lock your windows, and cover your mirrors# the boogeyman is coming for you!

The treatment of the story line has been extended with some great FX shots done on the cheap. This is a so-called low budget film, and yet it manages to make some high end production values. Ghost House Production has once again made a film work well on a low budget, just as it makes film work on higher budgets.
The DVD is very well done, with great sound, and some good commentary on the Producer/writer track; Its a pity that the Supernatural element was lost.
While the film is sadistic, it is also incredibly plodding and fails to chill on any level. While the film allegedly stars John Carradine, be advised that he is in it as a dour psychiatrist for maybe five minutes. It's a shame, as he turns in the best performance in the film (not that that's saying much.) The plot revolves around a house where murders occurred years ago. There's a mirror that witnessed the killings and little pieces of it possess people and objects to bring more death and destruction. I will not bore you with details, but the following is a non-exhaustive list of murderously possessed items: scissors, electric hedge trimmers, a window frame (not the glass part, you understand,) a medicine cabinet, a can of shaving cream, and my personal favorite, a toothbrush. Bonus points go to Lommel for the most ridiculously deadly French kiss in history.
The "Exorcist" and "Amityville Horror" influences are obvious, but the film is clearly not in the same league. The film centers on B-movie personalities in Hollywood, where Lacey confronts her past while the cast gets thinned out. The film has poor sound and lots of annoying directorial choices and camera work (the closeups of children's toys in the dark, etc.) that utterly fail to create suspense or horror. The film winds down with a jarringly quick, but wholly ridiculous conclusion involving a convertible in the desert with three unlikeable cast members in it. I couldn't help but think of the parallel sequences in "Manos, The Hands of Fate," but "Manos" is a much more enjoyable movie.
Even John Carradine's most devoted fans may want to steer clear of "Boogeyman 2," surely one of the most trying horror films of his career to endure. You have been warned.
