Synopsis

Tim is a seemingly normal, twenty-something guy. He's got a decent job and is moving fast in his relationship with his girlfriend Jessica. But an intense, paralyzing fear that has been terrifying him since childhood is tearing him apart. When Tim was eight, each night his dad would put him to sleep with a bedtime story. Until that one fateful night. As Tim watched from his bed, his father was violently sucked into the closet, and was never seen or heard from again. Tim is terrified that the Boogeyman will return and take him as he has taken so many before. Until now he has coped by eliminating opportunities for the Boogeyman to get to him. He has removed every dark corner in his apartment; there are no closets, and his bed is on the floor so the evil force has nowhere to hide. When Tim is forced to move outside his comfort zone on a Thanksgiving trip to Jessica's parents, he leaves this protected world. After a disturbing dream about his estranged mother, Tim awakens in a cold sweat. His cell phone rings. His mother has died. After the funeral, Tim visits the children's psychiatric hospital where he spent many years after the disappearance of his father. His former counselor reiterates what she has known all along--that in order to get over his fears, he must spend a night alone in the old house and confront things head on. Tim tries to relax and enjoy a reunion with his childhood best friend, Kate, but as Tim relives the past, his crippling fear returns. Tim turns to the only person who shares his fear, Franny, a precocious and mysterious young girl who first appeared at his mother's funeral. She is the only one who sees what he sees--and Tim draws on Franny's courage and advice to face the Boogeyman. But when he discovers that Franny was abducted years ago and has been missing ever since, he realizes that the line separating what is real and what is not has vanished. Now Tim must fight to put the evil force and the demons to rest in a final battle to save his life. But how can he know what is real and what is imagined?
