When she was young, Lacey witnessed, by mirror reflection, the brutal murder of her stepfather at the hands of her brother, Willy. Years later, Lacey has settled into a comfortable married life, with a child of her own, while Willy has been rendered mute as a result of his childhood trauma and has taken to removing or blacking out all mirrors in the family home. When the very mirror through which Lacey and Willy viewed the murder is accidentally shattered, a dark and vengeful curse is unleashed on the family, and soon anyone unlucky enough to come into contact with shards of the mirror falls victim to heinous murder...

One of the major independent horror blockbusters made in the wake of Halloween, Ulli Lommel's THE BOOGEYMAN (Tenderness of the Wolves) catapulted its director out of the arthouse circuit and solidified him as a master of horror. Starring and co-scripted by Suzanna Love (Olivia) and featuring Nicholas Love (TV's Twin Peaks) alongside B movie icon John Carradine (The Astro Zombies) in a supporting role, the film's grisly murders, designed by effects artist Craig Harris (Toxic Zombies), landed it on the notorious list of Video Nasties and gave it an even larger cult fanbase. Vinegar Syndrome at last presents this seminal stab at early 80s horror on 4K UHD, newly and exclusively restored from its original 35mm camera negative and including a host of interviews with cast and crew.
