      Elvis D Ahora con Rob Tarpert a cargo de la producción, esta secuela de Boogeyman deriva de su predecesora, siendo un slasher donde un asesino usa la imagen del Boogeyman y la fobia de sus víctimas como armas asesinas. Como en la película anterior, aquí también se utiliza el miedo al Boogeyman y el trauma de la infancia. Eso se ve muy reflejado en la protagonista, Laura. La película también mantiene una de las características del Boogeyman que es usar los más profundos miedos de sus víctimas para atormentarlas. Además, aquí juega un poco con que el Boogeyman es solo un producto psicológico del miedo que el ser humano tiene, pero cuando llega la revelación de quien es el asesino, eso parece dejar abierta la posibilidad de que el miedo que el Boogeyman genera en sus víctimas puede también provocar locura. Eso hace que el Boogeyman sea una figura que puede trascender en distintas formar y no solo como un ente sobrenatural, sino también como alguien de carne y hueso que puede cometer atrocidades con tal de infundir terror en las personas. Esta secuela acaba presentando un concepto más filosófico y psicológico del Boogeyman dando a entender que es más que un ente mítico. Puede ser una persona que comete atrocidades inspirando terror en los demás y en ese aspecto, el Boogeyman si es real. Como secuela, puede ser una película poco convincente por desligarse de su predecesora, pero es una película que igual logra expandir más el concepto del Boogeyman mostrando que es mucho más que un cuento para asustar a los niños. Mi calificación para esta película es un 9/10. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review Andre G I don't know what it is to me and mental hospital movies, I seem to love them. This was an awesome movie. The main issue I had with this movie is that in the first movie it was the actual boogeyman. In this movie it's an actual person pretending to be the boogeyman. Didn't like that at all. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Somewhat fun sequel to a pretty bad film. Boogeyman 2 falls comfortably into the universe of the first movie without inheriting as many of the flaws. Interesting characters and a cool atmosphere also help the film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review kevin c A young woman checks herself into a mental health facility to try and rid herself of her fear of the Boogeyman since a traumatic childhood experience. This checks off all the horror movie cliche boxes, some in a good way, with some decent gore and nudity, but also checks off the annoying ones where characters do ridiculously out of character things considering they're all afraid of something. Watchable but not memorable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member If the boogeyman is a mythical creature then director Jeff Betancourt obviously hasn't done his reasearch because the mythical side is replaced with a masked, knife wielding killer OH HOW ORIGINAL, NOT!! this film basically rip's off any slasher film you care to name or view in particular A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 gory in places but nothing new or shocking. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member The first Boogeyman film was pretty awful, but it must have made enough money to warrant a direct-to-video sequel. Although this horror film is not very good, it is better than the original, but not by much. The story here has a young woman checking herself into a mental institution to deal with her fear of the Boogeyman. A major change from the first film is that the Boogeyman is much more flesh and blood and much less supernatural, which is an odd choice for a supernatural thriller. One smart choice by the filmmakers was to forego the PG13 rating and go for a hard R rating, filling their film with loads of gory practical special effects instead of the much overused computer generate gory special effects (i.e. "Ghost Ship" or "The House on Haunted Hill"). This sequel also has a better cast than the first film, with Renée O'Connor and Tobin Bell Tobin as doctors at the institution. Overall, the story isn't that good and it's not all that scary, but for a low budget horror film, it does boast some excellent gory (PRACTICAL) special effects, which was enough to hold my interest.

      Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Makes a good argument as a slasher film that's worth spending your time on... Oct 12, 2009 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...generally comes off as a better-than-expected and refreshingly brutal little horror flick. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 16, 2008 Full Review Scott Weinberg FEARnet A whole lot gorier than the first one. I love how the beloved PG-13 gets tossed in the dumpster once the letters "DTV" are brought up. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 26, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews
