Helen’s boyfriend dropped in the house she’s babysitting, just for the company. But she drops him a bomb – she’s pregnant. And the baby’s his.

They can’t resolve their consequences soon enough, because the kid she’s babysitting, Lucas, woke up screaming from a bad dream about the local boogeyman.

She and her boyfriend are both skeptics, and send Lucas to bed. But Lucas sleepwalks to a home to what looks like Robert Bowery’s might live. Robert Bowery, the Child Eater who eats the eyes of children to keep himself from going blind.

They find that there’s truth in the urban legend. There’s no smoke without fire, no babies without stork feathers.

Look again. There’s always a boogeyman in the closet.
