Storyline

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...

misunderstood
27 August 2009 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

This one is probably misunderstood by many, because of it's genre. It's short but very powerful story and I can't see any way in which it could have been done better. It perfectly reflects the horror and disturbance in the main characters mind. It doesn't really give you too much of a plot, but because of it's genre it's not what it's supposed to do. The main thing here is psychology and this short delivers that part perfectly. And I guarantee that some words said here will haunt you for some time. I'm a fan of Stephen King and can really see his reflection here, it really reflects his style - madness, disturbance and despair - that's the glorious mix of Mr. Stephen King. Watch it if you have some free time to waste.
