The three children of the separated family father Lester Billings are dead, like a psychiatrist tells, killed bye the Boogeyman. The worst thing for Billings is, that he has suspected that, when his first child died, and was sure, when his second child died. still he admitted that the Boogeyman took his third child. Now he believes, that the Boogeyman will take him too, and is afraid to open his closets at home. His psychiatrist understands him well, too well... Written by

Not because it's a college short film, but because:
a) it butchered possibly Stephen King's best short story &
b) as a film alone it doesn't really make any sense
the acting left something to be desired too and I really found the music annoying. The main protagonist (Lester Billings) was interesting but I was unsure if this was a good or bad performance, I want to say good but the direction was bad and the effects were cheesy thus bringing down the actor. Too bad.
Final verdict: Stay away from the film. Read the book.
