Age: 5 years old. I was at a sleep over at my cousins house. My Auntie was probably still asleep. We found the movie that my older cousins had watched the night before with some friends, and slipped the VHS into the player. The title made us think it was a kids movie.
How overcome: As with all my monsters, during the day I would try to rationalize away my fear, but come bedtime I would bawl and beg them not to close the door. They would have to say a special prayer with me asking God to protect me from the Candyman. Then I would lull myself to sleep, repeating in my head "it's OK, I prayed for protection... he can't hurt now, he can't...." | Photographer unknown |thank you for sharing your story.
