With a title like Boo!, you really can’t blame me for thinking that it was going to be a bad movie.

As it turns out, Boo is one of the better horror films of 2005. It sure isn’t flawless, with most of its ugh moves coming from the writer/director Anthony C. Ferrante’s script and the characters poorly created in it. Ferrante does, however, show himself to be a more than capable fright fest director, as Boo definitely succeeded at freaking me out a couple times.

Even though I rented it when it came to video, for some unknown reason I never got to watch Session 9. Boo has been called a rip-off of Session 9, and it’s certainly possible that I may have enjoyed Boo less if I’d seen it. So keep that in mind as I lay down plenty of praise for this above average flick.

The plot isn’t new in the least. A bunch of stupid teenagers convince their worrisome female friend to head to an abandoned hospital on Halloween. While the initial scares come from props setup by members of the group beforehand, it’s not long before the teens realize that there’s some supernatural shit going on. Now it’s time for the gory effects, so-so acting, and scare sequences to get going

Anthony Ferrante wrote for Fangoria for many years before leaving the helm to eventually make Boo, and it’s pretty obvious that those years of watching poor horror films have taught him well. He made the wise decision to shoot on film, and while that surely ballooned the budget needed, it helps immensely. Ferrante’s got a real knack for directing. That’s the chair he should be sitting in on a permanent basis, as if Boo is any indication of his writing abilities, he should stray away from that field.
Good stuff.
