The Bagman is a 2002 Direct-to-Video Slasher Movie.

Jack Marshall was a disfigured lad who was horribly bullied by his peers. This all culminated in one of them murdering the boy. It's been 10 years since the incident, and everybody involved has joined up for old times' sake. Naturally, a figure wearing a burlap mask shows up for some revenge.
