Rated PG-13 2005

This Sam Raimi-produced thriller plays more or less like a PG-13 version of Monsters, Inc.. It has the usual array of cheap shocks, but it also comes by some of its scares honestly -- if you consider cribbing some of Raimi's favorite scenes from Japanese horror movies to be "honest." Barry Watson (Sorority Boys) plays a guy who once saw his father taken away by a monster and has been frightened of closets ever since. It's possible he's just crazy, but thankfully we don't have to deal with yet another cinematic split-personality twist -- the Boogeyman is real, and he manages to lay some neat head trips on our hero up until the climax, when, unfortunately, everything deteriorates into incoherence. Director Stephen T. Kay (The Last Time I Committed Suicide) busts off some cool shots, and Eric Kripke's story is pretty sound until the finale. Worth a look for horror fans, but nothing classic.
