I apologize, I don't have much information- just that I remember she sent me a music video a band used to show the story and that it's been used for years to scare kids into going to bed on time. For what I remember of the video, it looked like a wolf coming out of the closet and the title was in French. Somewhere within the title (I think in the end?) was the time of night you're supposed to be in bed?
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
P.S.- It wasn't the Bogeyman. I remember it reminded me of the Bogeyman story, but wasn't.
