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...

A father is losing his children one by one...and his sanity.
2 January 1999 | by Kenny-29See all my reviews

This mega-cheap, college film has a way of getting under your skin. The main character is so weird that I didn't know if I was watching a good performance or a bad one. Watch this one late at night with the lights off, then check your closets! I found it when I rented Stephen King's Nightshift Collection which showcases this one along with "The Woman in the Room".
