Ultimately boring. CSM should add a "why did this movie ever manage to spawn its exsistance" concern button.

Not bad

As horror flicks go, this one's worth watching.

Here comes the Boogeyman.

An interesting story about a monster in a closet. I guess those who experienced this fear when they were younger will finally have a change to overpass it. I think it’ll be okay with young teens, there are a few jump scares but nothing to spooky, I think it is a good scary movie for young ones.

Truly scary, one of the better horror movies!

Okay. First up, this is definatley a 16+ movie. There is no lnaguage at all, it is extremeley scary, there is a bondage scene where a guy gets mummified in saran wrap and dies of loss of air from the wrap over his mouth (HE is sexually excited and the guy is really wrapped so he enjoyed it!) and there is violence!
