Continuity mistake: Tim goes to his old home for the 1st time. He sees a reenactment of his parents arguing in the kitchen about Tim being afraid if his closet. Then he follows himself, as a child, upstairs and makes a right. He's heading down the hall and he's sliding his hand along the railing. They then pan down to his legs and feet while he's walking and you can see, through the railing, the bottom of his overcoat that he was wearing earlier. (00:28:45)

More quotes from Boogeyman

Question: In the preview for this movie, there is chanting in the background of something that ends with 'When you see him count to five, pray that you will stay alive.' What, if anything, is this?

Answer: This is a made up children's rhyme just like the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series has "One, two, Freddy's coming for you, three, four, better lock the door,..."


Answer: It's from the TV Spot for the Boogeyman from 2005. This is the clip that it comes from. The rhyme haunted me for a long time and I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers it! It goes: When you're scared just count to ten, you will feel all good again. When it's dark just count to eight, the Boogeyman will hide and hate. When you see him count to five, pray that you will stay alive.
