Films: The Boogeyman (1980), Sequels that don't exist
Alias: The Boyfriend
Location: Haunted Home/Forest
Summary: If you've been particularly bad, they might say that you ought to look at yourself in the mirror. If bad spirits inhabit said mirror, it's best to not take that advice.
History: One day, Willy stabbed the boyfriend of his mom repeatedly, unable to stand their sexual activities. The thing was that he did it in front of a mirror, which the boyfriend soon possessed. Now a Boogeyman, this man was hellbent on driving his would-be family completely insane by tormenting them and murdering anyone who dare be next to even a shard of the mirror.
Notable Kills: Possesses a screwdriver into stabbing a kissing couple's heads.
Final Fate: The runaway shard is thrown into a sink, where the water ignites it. The same is done to the rest of the mirror by chucking it into a well. However, at least one shard remains...and no. Those stock-footage filled sequels never happened. Seriously.
Powers/Abilities: Possession if a shard gets lodged into the body, telekinesis.
Weakness: Water destroys the mirror.
Scariness Factor: 4-Although water is a pretty lousy weakness (as always), there's no doubt that this thing is the worst when it comes to apparitions. Unseen, all-powerful, and intent on making you die horribly, it's a relief that no other Boogeymen seem to follow his example.
Trivia: -This film is partially based on the myth that breaking a mirror is bad luck, as well as another about a mirror displaying someone who died in the room it was in.
-John Carradine got all his scenes done in a day, and was there mainly to boost the film's commercial performance.
