** All things considered, Warwick is more of a MeanBoss. He doesn't force any of his employees to clean up the basement; they do so because they're getting paid time-and-a-half (double-time on the Fourth of July). He does, however, yell at, belittle and patronize the mill workers, and threatens to fire anyone who walks out because of the rats.

* NothingIsScarier: Lester Billings never sees the Boogeyman [[spoiler:until the end, that is]]. However, he certainly hears it and is well aware of its presence in his house -- he notes how a trail of slime appeared in the hallway one day and talks about how you could almost hear it dragging its claws over the bannister or sliding around. The Boogeyman's actions were stealthy but not ''too'' much -- as Billings puts it, "it wanted you to hear it".
