2011 October Horror Movie Challenge Movie 10: Mr. Boogedy
This was a made-for-TV Disney Halloween movie from 1986. A family moves into a creepy old house in a small town and find out that the house is haunted by some ghosts. The father works as a gag toy salesman, so there are plenty of cheesy gags to go around as well as some fun lines ("Hey, did someone happen to leave a strange green light glowing in that room? I didn't think so...") It's cheesy fun. Bonus points for having a young Kristy Swanson playing the teenage daughter (she was the original "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" in the original movie, and has gone on to star in some above-average direct to DVD horror flicks, such as "Living Death").
