"This time last year I was plotting to kill a man."

Twenty-five years after he was sexually assaulted, David Holthouse learns that his 'bogeyman' has moved into his new neighbourhood. Armed with a pistol and a plan, he plots to enact revenge on the man who stole his childhood.


STALKING THE BOGEYMAN​ was first written by Holthouse as a first-hand account in the Denver Westwood newspaper, and subsequently featured as a podcast on This American Life.


Directed by ​Neil Gooding​ ​(Dogfight, Passion)​ and featuring ​Graeme McRae​ ​(Secret City, Birdland, On the Shore of the Wide World)​ as David Holthouse with an incredible ensemble cast of ​Noel Hodda ​(Janet King, Rake)​,​ Radek Jonak ​(Red Dog, The Secret Daughter)​, ​Deborah Jones ​(Top of the Lake, A Place to Call Home)​, ​Alexander Palacio ​(In The Heights) and ​Anne Tenney​ ​(A Country Practice, The Castle), ​STALKING THE BOGEYMAN​ is a riveting true story of abuse, survival and vengeance.
