* ArtisticLicenseBiology : Bats aren't flying rats. However, in light of the mutant abominations discovered in the sub-cellar, it's possible that the flying creatures really are rats that have somehow grown wings.

* 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".

** Of course, they weren't actually bats but rats that were so mutated and deformed that they grew wings and therefore ''looked'' a lot like bats. Probably a case of CallASmeerpARabbit.
