      Elvis D La película presenta una variante del Boogeyman según el folklore mexicano y que es lo más cercano a la versión clásica de este personaje. Es una película de presupuesto moderado que no ofrece mucho, pero es bastante decente. Se aprecia el intento por traer una representación de la clásica leyenda que a pesar de basarse en el folklore mexicano, tiene bastante semejanza con otras versiones clásicas de la leyenda. El diseño de la criatura es bastante bueno y se acerca bastante a la posible apariencia física que podría tener el Boogeyman, ya que en la mayoría de veces se lo ha descrito como una criatura grande con túnica y aspecto monstruoso y llevando un saco en algunas versiones donde lleva a los niños que secuestra. Desde luego que el aspecto del Boogeyman va variando según los folklores y las regiones, pero el Cucuy se acerca bastante a la versión clásica. En cuanto al resto de la película, es bastante simple sin mucho que decir. Es probable que no sea la película de terror que algunos estarían esperando porque se trata de una película orientada a un público más joven, pero al menos se las ingenia para narrar la terrorífica historia de este Boogeyman de la manera más tradicional posible. Mi calificación para esta película es un 7/10. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review robert p One creature that is obviously plastic that can open its mouth and of course, evil red eyes. What a bunch of barf, this movie is obviously for children that scare easy, but not for an adult by any means, if you are an adult stay very far away from this lousy produced for Sci-Fi station! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm always surprised how these movies get made despite a decent budget to pay actors they should've invested in better CGI. The storyline moves along slowly and the character depths are very shallow. They expect the audience to believe it a lot of nonsense like how in the hell is that one going to get to a via bag. The anti bullying message loses weight at the end. This theme has so much potential like Quiet Place but it ends up like a mall shop five minute maze for Halloween on repeat. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Be prepared It's not something that you're going to It's going to be at all be ready 💯 👌 🙌 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Pocos y malos efectos especiales. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I felt like I was watching Disturbia again but Shia Lebeouf was replace by Jearnest Corchado. This cliched Syfy film was predictable, lazy, and didn't make me feel excited for new Halloween movies. There not one scene that scared me nor kept me excited. It was a mess. Save your 90 minutes for better October Movies. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
