When I was seven, ABC aired a made-for-TV movie called “Mr. Boogedy” – and it scared the living shit out of me. Why? I could’t tell you, especially since the movie has been lost in the sands of time.
Directed by Oz Scott and written by Michael Janover, the 1987 “Mr. Boogedy” starred the great Richard Masur, as well as Mimi Kennedy, in a film where a family finds their new house is haunted by the ghost. It aired as an episode of “The Disney Sunday Movie”.
I guess it was successful enough to warrant a sequel, “Bride of Boogedy,” in which Mr. Boogedy returns, and will not stop until he get his revenge.
Anyways, I haven’t been able to hunt this movie down for quite some time and forgot about it – until Bloody regular Matthew wrote in about it popping up on Amazon Instant! Although it’s not in HD (it was probably on film), you can rent or buy it here. The sequel is also available right here.
Do you guys remember this movie? Was it scary to a small child? How is it now? I’m definitely renting it this weekend.
