The Man Under The Stairs by ECTmonster The Man Under The Stairs by ECTmonster
Another boogeyman, inspired by another everyday primal fear. In addition to the fear of dark basements, I also hated the feeling one gets when you mis-judge how many steps there are, and nearly fall. The dark places under basement or attic stairs always seemed like the most dangerous places in the house. Funny how a little shadowy space in a house can be so scary to a kid. Seems silly now, but back then the danger was real.
