From the producer of Oculus and The Strangers comes The Bye Bye 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, making you see and do the most unspeakable acts committed by man. Is there a way to survive his possession? Starring Douglas Smith (Ouija) and Carrie Anne-Moss (The Matrix), see the chilling thriller that critics are calling "a paranormal thrill ride that will echo in your nightmares" (Elizabeth Rayne, Den Of Geek).

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Bye Bye Man clumsily mashes together elements from better horror films, adding up to a derivative effort as short on originality as it is on narrative coherency or satisfying scares.

Laughably terrible horror movie has violence, sex.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Bye Bye Man is a horror movie that could appeal to fans of "so bad it's good" films. Violence and sex are the main issues. For the former, expect guns and shooting, minor gore, beatings, stabbings and killings, and some scary stuff and monsters. For the latter, college-age characters are shown in suggestive situations; there's no graphic nudity, but sex noises are heard, and there's the suggestion of nakedness. Other scenes briefly show naked bottoms, a male character appears shirtless, and a female is shown in revealing outfits and underthings. Language isn't frequent but includes a use of "f--k," plus "s--t" and more. There's some drinking at a college party, with references to characters being drunk but no other consequences. The movie was originally rated R but edited to earn a PG-13.
