The shadow monster woke up. It saw the boy in the pot and said:
[making his voice gruff]
"Mmmm. I'm starving. I'm going to eat you up."
So the monster opened his mouth wide and swallowed the little tailor whole. The boy fell and fell into a dark cave filed with slime...
Is that it?
That's all I could come up with.

A child is being visited by a boogeyman. But is it real or is it imaginary? Who knows? Who cares! Whilst there are some good scenes and decent acting especially from the child stars,the movie is ruined by a ludicrously convoluted story line and plot.
Even after watching the film and doing some research I am at a loss to understand what was going on and I believe many others are likewise scratching their heads too.
At the end of a film when all the strands of the story should fall into place and make sense, the opposite happens and many viewers will be left confused and let down.
