I saw this movie when I was in my Junior year of high school. I was 16. It played at the local downtown theatre for a buck and a quarter. When I got home that night, I took down every mirror in my bedroom and slept with the lights on. I'm not getting what all these people are saying about how bad it was though. I completely disagree. If you've read the many descriptions of the film here already, then I don't need to reiterate anything. My only wish for this movie would have been in the scene when Lacey sees the Boogeyman in the mirror in the house where she grew up; instead of throwing the chair at the mirror and breaking it, I would have liked to have seen HIM (The Boogeyman) trying to get out of the mirror FIRST for a few minutes (punching the glass with his fists, kicking it, etc...) and THEN have her break it with the chair. THAT was the scariest scene in the whole movie to me. That dude was FRIGHTENING with the pantyhose over his head! To this day, I'm 46 now (30 years later), this movie still scares the crap outta me! LOL!
