This sequel to Mr. Boogedy picks up some time after the event of the first film. The Davis family has moved on from its horrifying start to embrace their new life in their New England community. As the town prepares for a local festival, Carleton Davis (Richard Masur) is asked to be guest of honor. However, his rival in the novelty business, Tom Lynch (Eugene Levy), is jealous and highly upset by this news. As Tom tries to sabotage the upcoming festivities, Carleton’s two sons accidentally unleash Mr. Boogedy into the small town again. Mr. Boogedy soon takes Carleton’s wife for himself, forcing the remaining Davis family members to band together to send him back to where he belongs. In their journey to send Mr. Boogedy back to where he came from, Tom finds Mr. Boogedy’s magical coat and tries to use it for his own fiendish plans.

Made-for-TV comedy horror sequel is spooky but silly.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bride of Boogedy is a Disney made-for-TV comedy horror sequel to Mr. Boogedy with scares throughout that could upset sensitive kids. Mr. Boogedy (Howard Witt) -- back to haunt the Davis family home -- is sinister and shouty with a disfigured face and penchant for menacing laughter. However, he doesn't actually do anything dangerous or violent. There are lots of spooky scenes including graveyards at night, wolves howling, thunder and lightning, and ominous, tension-building music. Mr. Boogedy is brought back from the dead by a séance, which may be too much for younger viewers. That said, there is also plenty of silliness and the overall tone is clearly supposed to be light-hearted. For example, in one scene, Mr. Boogedy possesses Carleton (Richard Masur), but it's played for laughs rather than scares. With little depth in terms of characters or positive messages -- apart from a warm, loving family that sticks together -- this spook-show won't make a big impression. But it's entertaining enough for families who don't scare too easy.
