The review discusses the film “The Boogeyman,” which attempts to intertwine horror elements with themes of grief. While it falls short of innovation, it relies on familiar horror tropes. The story centers on the Harper family, coping with the loss of their mother and encountering a supernatural entity that thrives on their suffering. The film struggles to balance its creature feature and grief narrative, leading to predictability in both scares and storyline. The chemistry between the sisters, Sadie and Sawyer, portrayed by Thatcher and Blair, shines as a highlight. However, the film’s attempt to create a franchise-worthy ending undermines its overall impact. Although it employs strong atmosphere-building techniques, the lack of originality prevents the movie from standing out within the horror genre. “The Boogeyman” is enjoyable momentarily but is likely to fade from memory soon after viewing.
