The Boogeywoman

Late blooming Sam Rains finally gets her first period at the annual all-night skate. At first a triumph, her new condition brings strange side effects. An erie electrical problem has the kids teasing about “the Boogeywoman,” a local legend, a sorceress who feeds on men’s souls and eats little girls. When a friend leaks about Sam’s period, the boys tell her she’s fair game for The Boogeywoman. With an expected tryst derailed, Sam leaves the skating rink in a fever only to meet the legend in the flesh. Instead of a monster, Sam finds a mother, a goddess, a mentor--opening the door to womanhood.


Director Bio

Erica Scoggins is a Tennessee-based artist and filmmaker nurtured by the beauty and ghosts of southern soil. Her multi-disciplinary practice examines altered states of consciousness brought on by adrenaline, desire, disease, and trauma and draws on myth and archetype to challenge modern social standards. After studying fine art and writing at Belmont University in Nashville, Scoggins completed her MFA in Film Directing at California Institute of the Arts. As a postgraduate teaching fellow at Calarts, she taught a hybrid theory/practice course on the depiction of unexplainable phenomena in cinema. Scoggins is currently developing a feature film drawing on the themes and relationships in her latest short, The Boogeywoman.
