A teen enlists the help of an imaginary friend named Larry Houdini to deal with a prank-playing bogeyman, who's framing her for his dastardly deeds.

Viewers almost got a much scarier Boogeyman as depicted in early concept drawings for the film. In those, the Boogeyman was depicted as a very dark and crow like creature that was hardly visible and it had quills sticking out. Ultimately, director Kenneth Johnson
decided he didn't want the Boogeyman to be too dark and made him look more Victorian and made him speak in rhymed couplets to give the Boogeyman a more poetic and light-hearted quality. See more
