Story Synopsis:
When Willy (Nicholas Love) and Lacey (Suzanna Love) were little, they were responsible for the murder of their mother's lover. Now, 20 years later, a note from their mom brings back painful memories from that fateful day. Lacey's husband Jake (James) convinces Lacey to face her demons and go visit the house where the crime occurred. When Lacey goes in her mother's bedroom, she sees the dead man in an old mirror and shatters it. Little does she know that she has let out the evil spirits of "The Boogeyman," and he's determened to get revenge on anyone who gets in his way. (Tricia Spears)
