There Is No Such Thing is a short horror video from Drew Daywalt. A woman is tucking her daughter in at night and tells her that the boogeyman doesn’t really exist.
Director Drew Daywalt says: â€œThe funny thing about this one is that it started out as a jump-out-boo-scare kind of thing. But Iâ€™ve outgrown those kinds of scare tactics and wanted something more awful. In my original draft of the script, I just had the mother checking under the bed, and then she finally puts her foot down and doesnâ€™t check for a monster and leaves the room, but this one time she doesnâ€™t check, thereâ€™s the monster, and itâ€™s going to eat her daughter and she didnâ€™t check. Total parent anxiety fears. But then as we were filming, actress Azure Parsons, who plays the mother, jokingly suggested that she looks under the bed, sees the monster and doesnâ€™t do anything to save her daughter. We laughed and then I thought, thatâ€™s amazing. What a horrible mom. And thatâ€™s how we came to this one. And the villain switched from the creature to the mother.â€
