I've always thought this was a weird choice in translation. A witch in the woods gets translated into a monster in a closet?

Also I think the witch is a better nickname than the boogeyman.

Boogeyman is just a generic monster/myth creature to frigthen children. The monster in a closet is just one subtype. That is a boogeyman, baba is a boogeyman, the sack/bag man is a boogeyman, Krampus is a boogeyman, they're all boogeyman.
