Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “People commit unthinkable acts every day. Time and again, we grapple to understand what drives a person to do such terrible things. But what if all of the questions we’re asking are wrong? What if the source of all evil is not a matter of what… but who?

In 1990s Wisconsin, three college students move into an old, off-campus house, where they find themselves hunted by a sinister supernatural entity called The Bye Bye Man (Doug Jones).

From the producer of ‘Oculus’ and ‘The Strangers’ comes ‘The Bye Bye Man,’ a chilling horror-thriller that exposes the evil behind the most unspeakable acts committed by man. When three college friends stumble upon the horrific origins of the Bye Bye Man, they discover that there is only one way to avoid his curse: don’t think it, don’t say it. But once the Bye Bye Man gets inside your head, he takes control. Is there a way to survive his possession?

Debuting on Friday, January 13th, this film redefines the horror that iconic date represents—stretching our comprehension of the terror this day holds beyond our wildest nightmares.

This film is an adaptation of a short story called ‘The Bridge to Body Island’ by Robert Damon Schneck.”

Negative—Wasn’t scary, and the blonde women was such a bad actor. Wait for DVD release. Not worth seeing in theatres.

…utterly lifeless and banal… “The Bye Bye Man” is pretty much as lame as can be—a film that is alternately far too silly to work as a horror film and far too boring to succeed as camp. …[½]
