In The Boogie Man Will Get You, Winnie Slade is a young divorcee who buys an old historic house from nutty Professor Billings. The professor lives there with his daffy housekeeper and wants to convert the historic house into a hotel. Winnie allows them to continue to live on the property but is unaware that the Professor continues to experiment on traveling salesmen. His experiments are unsuccessful so he filled the cellar with their bodies!

One night at dinner, the residents hear a sound they believe is a ghost. Bill thinks this is part of a plan to scare the new owner away. While investigating, Bill discovers the dead body of a travelling salesman in the basement. Bill reports this discovery to local sheriff Dr Arthur Lorentz. After making inquiries, Lorentz realizes the potential for profit and decides to work with Billings on a subsequent experiment. Their initial plan is to use Bill as a test subject, but this proves unsuccessful. Now they turn their attention to Maxie, a visiting powder puff salesman.

The Boogie Man Will Get You has a  variety of eccentric characters. These include a quack doctor who doubles as the town’s sheriff and Winnie’s frenetic ex-husband. Add an oddball choreographer, a punch drunk traveling salesman, and a lunatic escapee from the Italian army.
