When Sam Murphy’s seven-year-old daughter Janey starts to suffer night terrors, he does his best to assure her that Mr Stix – a voice from the shadows who says “mean things” to her – can’t hurt her.
Sam later finds the grotesque Mr Stix in the family bathroom and then his terrified wife tells him the story of her own childhood night-time fears.
