The Bogeyman (also known as the boogieman, bogieman, or bogeyman) is a being which in some cultures adults refer to, to get their children to behave. The being has no specific shape and conceptions can vary from household to household as it emodies terror and fear to the particular individual. In modern day culture it is common for parents to use the phrase to their children, “If you don’t behave the Bogeyman will get you.” The entity is known to manifest from dark regions within ones room, most commonly from the closest.
One common characteristic of the Bogeyman is that they are often characterized as being a dark shadow like figure, perhaps sharing a resemblance to what many people refer to in modern day culture as the shadow men.
In other countries such as Spain portrayed as a man with a sack on his back who carries naughty children away. Another example of this can be seen in Armenia and Georgia children are threatened by the “Bag Man” who carries a bag and kidnaps those who don’t behave. In Bulgaria, children are sometimes told that a dark scary monster-like person called Torbalan.
