The first Boogeyman film had some great ideas in it, but to get to them you had to sit through seemingly endless, dull scenes. The second film was like a throwback to 70s and 80s psycho killer films where you are kept guessing the killer's identity to the end. It threw out the supernatural elements of the first film, and involved a series of creative murders, each tailored to a mental asylum's inmate's (strangely enough, all teens) particular phobias, and while it wasn't great at least I didn't feel cheated sitting through it. This third film takes the supernatural creature of the first film, combines that with the serial killings of the second, and throws out anything that was interesting about those two films in the process. As per hundreds of post-Scream horror films that featured dumb teens, no nudity and minimal violence, Boogeyman 3 inexplicably takes all the cliches covered in that film, presents them seriously, and manages to make them even duller than when they were pre-Scream cliches, all apparently packaged for 12-14 year olds. You get the usual gaggle of dull, insipid characters getting killed off in boring, repetitious manners (this time in the oft-used setting of a university dorm) one after the other while making dumb choices. There are no surprises, no suspense, no thrills, nothing, not even any tasteless exploitation. If I had something better to do during the particular night I watched this I would have felt even more ripped off and probably given this one star.
