It does. Before stabbing herself with the scissors she slices her top open because this is a terrible film.

Some of you may be wondering what I'm still doing over here. Truth is, while I have a list of Horror titles not on the They Shoot Zombies list, most of them are similar recommendations from other lists and reviews. The titles I most wanted to see for Shocktober, I already have. I'm 19 films away from 100% completion, including a few titles I want to see - such as A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), Black Christmas (2006) - and one my wife has nostalgia for, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988).

Much as I respect They Shoot Zombies, you can see by my reviews this year's update has weakened the list quite a bit. It's a sentiment I see echoed on the ICM Forum by others who aim to complete. There are already ideas in place for how the list is compiled that will hopefully weed these lesser horror films back out.

The Boogey Man (1980)

Man this is bad. A girl sees her brother commit murder through a mirror. Years later, the woman finds the mirror and shatters it, only to have the pieces commit inexplicable evil deeds as they are scattered around. (Kind of like Oculus but terrible.) Poorly filmed with little money and a bad script, its the kind of film whose inclusion in They Shoot Zombies makes me question the entire list.
In Decemer 1980 there was a debate on Swedish television on the influence of violent movies availible on VHS at that time and the destructive effect they had on young people. I remember that The Boogeyman was one of the titles that were singled out on this program. Other movies that were mentioned in this context were The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Driller Killer, Tourist Trap and a few others. Btw, The Boogeyman has the scene with the girl and the pair of scissors in front of the mirror, right?
