Movie sucks
12 September 2017 | by ranger51262See all my reviews

Saw the movie, lived thru it, box office agrees the movie sucked. It could have played on the Lifetime Network or straight to home video. Boogie Man gonna get you.. As Krauss stated in the movie "You don't talk about this to anyone, ever." And apparently he was correct, as the budget was $34M dollars, and the studio received only a portion of that, we should have been paid to watch this I rest my case
