"The Boogens" (1981) starring Rebecca Balding, Fred McCarren, Jeff Harlan and Anne-Marie Martin is a slow burn horror movie about a group of young adults who rent a home in the mining town of Silver City, Colorado and find the town overrun with vicious creatures.
This is a fun old fashioned 80's horror movie. We have our young people that just want to have some fun but horrors from this town's past will change that; an old man who remembers the original mining accident from stories from his father and doesn't want the mine reopened; a dog that is a real scene stealer; creepy creatures that we know are lurking in the dark shadows of the house but we don't see for the longest time until their final reveal and the exciting conclusions of the film. "The Boogens" has a lot of suspenseful atmosphere that will keep you creeped out! I enjoyed discovering this movie which has recently been released on Blu-ray.
