Barry Watson is fine and believable in this promising horror film as he carries what seems to be a suspenseful build-up to a stylish finale. But, yet again, the makers of horror are sadly uncreative and underestimating its audience. The show-down in Stephen T. Kay's Boogeyman is just about the worst horror films get. Even the special effects are offensively bad. That's a shame, because - although we're being presented all the usual elements (old abolished mansion, closed doors to unknown places, little girl with disclosed secret), director Kay actually conveys them with a touch of skill. That is, of course, until it's time to untie the knots. Sometimes it's better to just leave things out in the open. Most horror films are one of those times.
