This is strictly substandard stuff, with imitative creepy noises, vertiginous camera angles, and long pauses during which Tim considers whether to open doors.
Lisa Schwarzbaum — Entertainment Weekly
Only glimpses of the monster are seen in Stephen Kay's supernatural thriller. Unfortunately, the same is true of the movie's plot and character.
Anita Gates — New York Times
It's difficult to remember a recent movie with less regard for spatial or temporal coherence.
Joshua Land — Village Voice
With all the movies out there, this is the last one you should pick.
Matt Weitz — Dallas Morning News
A vaporous and vacuous horror film.
David Hiltbrand — Philadelphia Inquirer
None of this makes any sense whatsoever.
Lou Lumenick — New York Post
Yeah, it's dumb, and it takes a long time to get to scenes that amount to anything other than cheap scares. But Boogeyman is not entirely artless.
Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel
It squanders a promising plot about child abduction, preferring to go the literal route of chasing a spectral troublemaker with a bad case of claustrophobia.

It suffers from a lack of genuine chills or suspense.
Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter
Fright fans expecting anything more than the occasional jolt will be sorely disappointed.
Kevin Crust — Los Angeles Times
A bloated 86 minutes of overzealous spookiness.
