Boogey Boogey Boogens?

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , on January 3, 2010 by sideshowmassacre

I just slogged through an obscure monster flick from the very beginning of the 80’s (which is coincidentally also the very beginning of my life). The Boogens is a dark and effective film despite being dragged down by too much talk and not nearly enough action.

A mine is purposely demolished to seal up these turtle-like creatures. Years later when they attempt to re-open the mine, the Boogen are set free to cause very little trouble and kill very few. Practically harmless.

The kill scenes are few and far between and the movie relies on the killing being done off screen which is not uncommon. The corpses and creature aftermath are enjoyably bloody and there are a few decent “It’s definitely dead now” jump scares.

I’m a big fan of creature features from the 80’s. Critters, Ghoulies, CHUD are some of my favorites. The Boogens is a hilarious bit of nostalgia and you’ll be hard pressed to find your own copy.

Luckily there is hope. Check out campslasher He will show you the way. On to his next gem.

Hurray Canada Day! Hurray moving!

So I am moving into my first official west coast place tomorrow and it’s not a moment too soon. We should have the net soon and a nice new movie room very soon and I’ll get back to business.

To fill the absence you should head on over to Youtube and check out two channels. I don’t know either of the guys and they don’t know me but I feel like I’ve been in their living rooms and they have been in my heart.

Their horror reviews and videos are some of my favorite online so I’m giving a shout-out to mrparka and Eigh8Thechosenone

Don’t forget to come back here when you’re done though.
