Through the reflection in the mirror, a girl witnesses her mother's boyfriend's murder.
The house used for the exterior shots of Lacy and Willy's childhood home is located in La Plata, Maryland, and in 2004 was severely damaged by a tornado.
When Lacey and Kevin are at the lake and Kevin says, "Mommy, mommy, I caught a fish, I caught a fish!" He is shouting, yet it is clearly Lacey doing the reeling in - you can see her shirtsleeves and it is a female adults arms and hands. Even more obviously, little Kevin is wearing a long-sleeved jacket.
The budget UK DVD by 'Hollywood Video' is fully uncut, under the title 'Boogeyman'. This is also available as a double-sided disc, paired with the sequel.
$4,500,000 (USA) (15 October 1980)
