Time Out says
Traumatised at the age of eight by the disappearance of his father, the now twentysomething Tim (Watson) returns home for his mother’s funeral. Still a closet scaredy-cat, Tim believes the Boogeyman is real, that he took his father, and will one day return to take him. Despite this, he decides to spend the night in his mother’s spooky old gothic house and confront his fears head-on.
Tim’s creepy scenes with young country girl Franny (Skye McCole Bartusiak) effectively exploit the slippage between Tim’s distorted imagination and our grasp of solid reality. Then, suddenly, the entire conceit evaporates and we slide into a Stephen King-style ‘monster’ movie. Disappointing and daft.
