Story:

The general idea of the Boogeyman is to keep children from misbehaving. It is believed to be a shapeless being lacking gender. The boogeyman takes the form of whatever one fears the most. This fact was used by many parents to scare the crap out of their kids to make them behave. If they did misbehave the creature would visit them in the night, hiding behind a closet door or under the child’s bed. Usually they are thought to be harmless, only aiming to frighten, but in some cases they are believed to be demonic in nature. It is in these cases, the boogeyman is quite dangerous.
