The Boogey Man (1980)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?
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, it’s the kind of film whose inclusion in They Shoot Zombies makes me question the entire list.
