“As For example, the first scene of the movie, Can you believe that it is inside a tape that is not rated R?”, the director wondered during the press conference to present The Boogeyman to which Hobby Consolas was able to attend. “The truth is that I thought that The Boogeyman Boogeyman was going to be 18+.”
“I shot a movie for that age rating and when they told me that we had to lower it to PG-13 we had to edit it in its entirety removing all the swear words. I can’t believe we haven’t had to cut any of the most macabre scenes.” Among them, the first of the film, which without giving many details, includes a monster, a baby and a lot of blood.
