"I thought I was watching a special feature when I started this movie, and was surprised that it was the feature. This is not a sequel, this is one of the worst DVDs of all time. Thankfully, I only rented it and am only out the rental cost. Everybody, be warned, you barely see anything of the actual Boogeyman sequel, just scenes in fast motion. There should be some kind of law because this DVD is slickly packaged and is a complete and total rip-off. Everybody involved with the making of this DVD should feel ashamed. Those who bought it deserve their money back."
A MUST HAVE for those interested in Ulli Lommel.

"THIS DVD IS AMAZING!!...for all the wrong reasons. Anyone with an interest in Ulli Lommel needs to check out this DVD, as it is the definitive proof that he has totally lost his mind and his talent as a film maker. The original Boogeyman 2 was basically 50% flashbacks from the original Boogeyman movie and 50% new footage. What he has done with his 'Directors Cut' of Boogeyman 2, is get rid of almost all the original 'Boogeyman 2' footage and replace it with even more flashback footage from the first movie and new footage of himself (once again playing his director character from the original Boogeyman 2) in a white room talking to the camera as if it's a police interview. What we now have is about 85% flashback from the first Boogeyman, 10% Ulli talking to the camera and about 5% Boogeyman 2 footage shown in fast forward. Doing this makes no sense!!! He has made a bad film even worse!! As a bonus on the DVD there is an interview with Ulli which is further proof he has gone mad. He really seems to believe that this version is better and that he has made a good film. You must watch the interview, it is so funny to hear his thoughts on his work. He seems to be the only person that does not realise how bad his films have become. His earlier films such as the original Boogeyman and Devonsville Terror were not bad at all, but his more recent work such as Green River Killer and BTK Killer are some of the worst films to ever be made. There are also 2 trailers for other Boogeyman sequels which also reuse footage. For someone like myself who is intrigued by how Ulli Lommel has become so bad, this DVD was worth every cent as it really highlighted the difference between his earlier style and newer style, and how bad he has become without being aware of it (the interview alone is worth buying it for). I have given this DVD 3 stars not due to its artistic merits (as it has none) or because it is a good film (it is not), but for the reasons outlined above."
BOOGEYMAN 2 IS A RIP OFF!

"I got all excited when I saw this DVD sitting on the shelf so I picked it up and read the back of it. I figured that since I had Part 1 that I would add this to my collection. What a rip off! All this movie is is Part 1 with the stupid director-in home video form-talking, trying to convince you that Part 1 was based on a true story. You can even see him smiling while he is trying to act serious. I think he knew that he probably screwed alot of people out of their money because when I tried to take this back for a refund I was told that since it was unwrapped that I could not return it. Well Ulli, or whatever the hell this so called directors name is, here some advice-read up on FALSE ADVERTISEMENT LAWS because I have a feeling that after this crappy stunt you might be getting into some trouble."
