<p> Here is a strange one from the archives in the back of my mind. There is a reported phenomena that has come to be labled "Bedroom animals". Every occurrence I have read happens to children. From behind the window curtains or off the window sill they jump out to the horror of any terrified kid who witnesses them. They are said to look like a man in a costume- realistic yet oddly off. One instance had one that resembled a lion man but the legs seemed to come straight from the head. The most I have ever read of these beings doing is startling, sometimes dancing with the child, and then poof...gone. It is almost like their only goal is to scare. Could this be where tales off the boogeyman come from or are these one time events only a dream?
