2011 October Horror Movie Challenge Movie 11: Bride of Boogedy
This sequel to the 1986 made for TV Disney Halloween movie "Mr. Boogedy" appeared in 1987. The mom and dad from the original movie returned, but they replaced all the kids with actors who look nothing like the ones from the first film. I didn't notice that in 1987 (I was only 6, give me a break) but it was kind of annoying when I noticed it today. Other than that minor quibble, this movie was a lot of fun. It's longer than the original movie, at about 90 minutes (the original clocked in at just under an hour) and the titular ghost Mr. Boogedy is more menacing in this movie, as he tries to steal a woman back to the underworld to be his wife. It was a lot of fun watching this and getting a blast from the past.
