Oh my God, Ulli Lommel’s Back and So Is The Boogeyman…


Apparently, Ulli Lommel is taking a break from making low-budget serial killer biopics to make another sequel to his 1980 film, The Boogeyman!  This sequel will be titled Boogeyman: Reincarnation, which is an improvement over the previous Boogeyman sequel, Revenge of the Boogeyman.

(As a film blogger writing about Ulli Lommel, I am now contractually obligated to point out that Revenge of the Boogeyman was largely made up of flashbacks to the first Boogeyman film.)

Now, here at the Shattered Lens offices, we have a long-running debate going over whether Ulli Lommel or Uwe Boll is the worst director of all time.  Usually, I pick Lommel but let’s give credit where credit is due.  Both The Boogeyman and The Devonsville Terror had plenty of spooky atmosphere.  They certainly were far better than Curse of the Zodiac or any of Lommel’s more recent films.

And the trailer for Boogeyman: Reincarnation may not look great but it doesn’t look as bad as most of Lommel’s films.  In fact, I would even say that Boogeyman: Reincarnation looks almost good enough to be mistaken for a Bill Rebane film!

Anyway, here’s the trailer for Boogeyman: Reincarnation, which has no release date but which will probably end up on Netflix at some point in the future.



Artist Profile: More From Diane Arbus

Diane Arbus was the first “artist profile” that I posted here at the Shattered Lens.  She’s one of my favorite photographers and when I did the post, I had a hard time limiting myself to just including ten of her photographs.  Diane Arbus was known for taking stark, black-and-white photographs of outsiders and those living on the fringe of society but she always found the humanity in her subjects.  Here’s 11 more of her photographs.
