Bartusiak was clean and sober and had never had problems with substance abuse, according to her mother.

So far, details are sparse around Bartusiak’s death. Her mother told the Associated Press that Skye had been living in a garage apartment at her parents home. Early on Sunday morning, her boyfriend found her unresponsive in bed. At that point, Helen Bartusiak attempted CPR on her daughter, but it was apparently too late.

Boogeyman Review


Bad
I am sad to report that Boogeyman is not another biopic. It's not even clear whether this tame bit of horror shlock is about the Boogeyman or simply a Boogeyman. The film's credits list him as "the," but let's hope it's a mistake; I prefer to think that the Boogeyman would have better things to do than menace the closets of a barely-there rural town.

This Boogeyman's favorite victim is Tim (Barry Watson), and a childhood encounter leaves Tim's dad dead -- but Tim, somewhat inexplicably, still alive. Years later, Tim is living in "the city" (very similar to "a city") terrified of closets and the dark, though surprisingly at ease with an insufferable and oblivious girlfriend Jessica (Tory Mussett). When a family tragedy brings Tim home again, he must confront his frighteningly literal demons. He also gets to spend some quality time with childhood love Kate (Emily Deschanel).

Don't Say A Word Review


Weak
Surrounded by hype, high hopes, and the promise of an over-the-top performance by Clueless's Brittany Murphy, Don't Say a Word looked full of promise. Hell, when I hear that "I'll never tell" whisper on the TV commercial, goose bumps run up my spine.

Alas, Word is filled with little but disappointment, a kooky mix of Girl, Interrupted and Ransom, with Michael Douglas and company collecting a paycheck to plod through a vapid and dull kidnapping thriller.

Don't Say A Word Review


Weak

A standard-issue kiddie-kidnapping adrenaline thriller, "Don't Say a Word" has a single reason for being -- one fertile, previously untapped plot hook that goes completely to waste in the hands of director Gary Fleder.

The hook: The kidnappers want a nugget of information locked away in the head of a delusional teenage mental patient (Brittany Murphy), and they snatch an Upper West Side psychologist's 8-year-old daughter to force him to help.

But the movie (based on a book by Andrew Klavan) pays little more than lip service to the logistics of such a demand. Even though no doctor has been able to get through to her in 10 years, this shrink (Michael Douglas) garners the crazy girl's trust in a matter of hours -- thus negating the only fresh element in the entire script.

Boogeyman Review


Zero
Friday, February 4, 2005

If you're looking for a review of "Boogeyman" in your newspaper this morning, you're not going to find one -- in any newspaper anywhere. Opening in theaters nationwide today, the movie has been kept hidden from critics because, to be blunt, the studios think it's garbage and want to rake in as much money as they can before word gets out.

Of course, nobody will admit to this at Screen Gems, which is releasing "Boogeyman." But it's no coincidence that every movie Hollywood doesn't screen in advance -- either by not holding previews until the night before opening or not holding them at all -- is largely lambasted once critics and audiences have caught up with it.
