Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: The last time we tackled a being known as the Boogeyman, it involved killer mirror spirits. Now, the legitimate bane of children everywhere is here, and here he will wreck your mind.

History: The Boogeyman exists in closets everywhere, and has one purpose: torment and kill every person he meets. He is everywhere, yet only somewhere. In all places, but also just one. Everyone meets the Boogeyman at some point. It's all a matter of when and how.

Notable Kills: Tricks a guy into drinking burning chemicals, makes a person panic and kill herself trying to remove maggots spread upon her by him, pumps bile into a person until she blows up, a bloody bunch of washing machines.

Final Fate: The Boogeyman never fails. Everyone it comes into contact with dies one way or another. Some may overcome it for a time, but it always comes back. Death and despair await all who dare cross the Boogeyman.

Powers/Abilities: Manipulation of reality, possession, possible omnipotence. The more people believe in him, the stronger he gets.

Weakness: Destroying things related to memories involving him ward him off.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-Some awful effects work in the first film notwithstanding, the Boogeyman is a frighteningly effective villain. With no weakness in sight, and a gallery of forms for him to take, he could be anywhere. And once he's got his sight on you, it's already too late.

Trivia: -The Boogeyman of myth has no real consistent appearance or morality. It is simply a name given to whatever creature people come up with to scare children, or even adults, into quitting bad behavior.

-For the second film, the Boogeyman's terrifying mask was actually based on director Jeff Betancourt's own deep-seeded phobias. Namely, skeletons and the corpses of birds.

Bottom line...don't drop out of college.
Poor man. You're in his world now.


And that helps HOW?

"Excuse me, I need to get my keys."

"When's the doctor going to be ready?"

The washing machine...of all places...
Scream quietly?! What does that even mean?!


Hey, at least he no longer looks dumb.

"Which dossier said I looked stupid?"

"You first. Knock on wood."
