Hey there Fright Fans ! Axemasters back in the Dungeon with a little treat for you ! And as the sun Sets a bit earlier every day , and the jack o'lanterns start to appear on the porches through out the neighborhoods , its time to start thinking more about ..................... Boogeyman !!!! Here's the story line in a nut shell !
The flick opens with a great scene that takes place in young Tim's bedroom ! Tim is eight , and has a fear of the Boogeyman ! (Hey , don't we all really !!!? ) He is trying to get
|"Help Me Spock !"|
Tim's Dad sees that tim is , well ..... crapping the bed !! He's filled his
Yes Mother !!"
|"Oh , There's the scrub Brush !! Ouch !!"|
Tim is now a successful working class guy , with a good job and a lovely fiancee . He has made a good life for himself and on the surface seems as normal as the next guy . However , despite his family insisting that his father simply abandoned him and his mother , Tim still believes what he saw in his bedroom all those years before ! So much so that he has gone to great lengths to insure that No dark places exist in his apartment ! No Closets ! No cupboard doors !
This is one serious phobia that Tim is dealing with . He wants to make a new life with Jessica though and agrees to go to her families home for Thanksgiving ! That means sleeping in a place With Closets and dark corners not controlled by Tim ! ( Yeah , He's in for it all right !) After dinner , and being grilled by his future in laws , Tim

Will Tim Concur his fear !?? Will He Finally see that the Boogeyman Lives only in his wild imagination !!???
There's only One way to find out Horror Hounds ! Pop this flick into the old VCR , or DVD player and pop up some corn and watch it for yourselves !! Boogeyman is a well put together tale and has some very effective and scary scenes . Its produced by Sam Raimi and one of his partners in crime Rob Tapert . If you're a fan of them , you will see their subtle touches on the way the movie is filmed . If there is anything that Boogeyman suffers from , its the CGI used to create the title character , which is perhaps a little over done . However , as always .......... You must decide for yourselves ! This Axemaster ... signing off !!!
