Fear of someone being behind me in the dark.

Whenever it's past midnight I'll be watching television. All the lights in the house are off and the only light in the living room is the television. Once I decide to go to my bedroom I obivously turn off the TV. Then it's pitch black and I can't look behind me. I feel like someone or something is behind me. Like if it is watching me every single second. Sometimes I'll stand there for a couple minutes in fear. If I do keep walking I won't turn around for anything. Does this phobia have a specific name?
