LesbiaNation - 31 March 2004
We recently caught up with former "Xena" star Lucy Lawless making the pilot season rounds in Los Angeles, what she calls "the roller coaster of hell." The public hasn't seen much of Lawless since her brief guest role on "The
X-Files," her animated appearance on "The Simpsons" (and that tiny walk-on in Spiderman), but now she's back and ready for action. With two new film appearances under her belt, possible "negotiations" in the works for a TV show,
and the new Xena Season Three DVD set on the shelves - she's one busy lady, and loving every crazy minute of it. Read the entire interview

Added Lucy mention/excerpt
from San Francisco Chronicle - 5 February 2005 Cheap thrills overcome big holes in 'Boogeyman' Lucy "Xena: Warrior Princess" Lawless isn't as distracting as one might think playing Jensen's mother, but most of the other actors in this film are either forgettable or memorably bad. Then again, most people don't go to
movies called "Boogeyman" for the acting, or the realism. They go for the Boogeyman. Read review
Added another Lucy mention - for the record Lucy is 37 in March <g> Review from Richmond.com - 4 February 2005 Then there's his mom, who's played by "Xena" star
Lucy Lawless. Lawless only makes it five minutes into the movies before dropping dead. And for some reason,
even though she couldn't be older than 50 years old, she's made up to look like she's 143. Must be some sort of reverse Botox or something
Added Lucy mention from Boogeyman review on Tahoe Daily Tribune - 4 February 2005 ...And his mother? How can you have a scary movie when your mother is Xena: Warrior Princess?

The Washington Times - 3 February 2005 Boogeyman (2005) (PG-13) — A horror thriller made under the production auspices of Sam Raimi, with Barry Watson as a young man obliged to return home and rummage around the traumatizing Gothic house where he
dwelled as a lad. He clings to a childhood impression that his father was abducted by an authentic boogeyman.
Riverfront Times - 2 February 2005 Boogeyman Stephen T. Kay. (PG-13) Falling smack-dab in the middle of film's darkest season (that'd be the time between Christmas and the Oscars) is this horror flick from Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures production
company. A young man (Barry Watson) who experienced terrible things in his bedroom as a child returns home to face his fears -- and to find out whether the terror was a figment of his imagination. Hopefully this one will be
truly spooky, unlike the recent (and abysmal) Hide and Seek. Opens Friday, February 4, at multiple locations. NR

Scared to death Hollywood's infatuation with horror keeps on truckin' - and screamin' - with the arrival of Boogeyman, a new shocker from director Stephen Kay - whose 2000 remake of Get Carter was plenty scary itself.
Barry Watson (pictured) stars as Tim Jensen, a young man still haunted by childhood traumas. In an effort to exorcise his personal demons, Tim returns to his boyhood home to determine once and for all whether his fretful
memories were merely figments of his imagination.
Instead, he finds something else that may require exorcising.
Emily Deschanel, Skye McCole Bartusiak and Lucy Lawless (Xena herself) round out the cast of this winter chiller. Rated PG-13 Opens Friday
The Post Standard - 30 January 2005 'Boogeyman' Although Sam Raimi is listed as one of the producers, hopes are dim that "Boogeyman" will be a box-office winner. The movie opens nationwide on Friday. The horror tale casts Barry Watson as a young man who must
return to his childhood home to confront the terrifying visions that have haunted him all his life. Stephen Kay directs the chiller from the laptops of writers Eric Kripke, Juliet Snowden and Stiles White.
The Herald Sun (Australia) has an
article about the Australian actress/singer Delta Goodrin who is suffering from Hodgkis
Disease. The article is about Barry Watson and how he battled the same disease. Barry is
appearing in Boogeyman. The article has a mention of the movie and Lucy. Click

The following is from The
Dallas Voice Community Newspaper - July 2003 Xena battles The Boogeyman Everyones favorite warrior princess may finally be meeting a foe she cant
beat: the boogeyman himself. Xenas Lucy Lawless has signed on to co-star in The
Boogeyman, a thriller currently shooting in her home country of New Zealand. Along with
Lawless, 7th Heavens Barry Watson stars as a young man returning to his childhood
home to try to overcome traumatic, boogeyman-inspired events that took place in his
bedroom. Not to be confused with the schlocky 80s series of Boogeyman movies, this
fright-fest comes from Sam Raimis (Spider-Man) new horror production company, Ghost
House. Raimi used to executive produce Xena, and hes also got a horror-picture
pedigree he was responsible for such scary movies as The Evil Dead and Darkman.
