Yes, it's really that bad

I saw the preview on Showtime and said to myself, "ooh, self, that looks creepy, let's watch it!". My self agreed and it first was excitedly creeped out and confused. My self even chastised me for putting on a "scary" movie knowing my propensity to freak myself out at night. But then I started wondering what happened to scenes--it cuts from the middle of a fight to people in bed like they left the rest of the fight on the editing room floor. I became gradually more aware of the bad acting, and not long after that, it sunk in that the writing was pretty awful too. From there, it became laughable: lingering shots on unimportant things, undetectable character motivation, truly terrible dialogue, and a villian that just wasn't frightening. And let's not forget, one tiny section of wallpaper comes alive and growls even though there's no character there to observe it, as if the audience will feel menaced be a wallpaper dog. Seriously. That really happens, apparently for no reason. All in all, I don't anticipate any problems sleeping tonight, unless I have more It related nightmares.

Give this a chance

I'm serious when i say this: I made an IMDb account just to rebuttle the bad reviews. if you are considering watching this i say GO FOR IT. When i watched this i went into it wishing i was watching family guy, The horror is not great but the twist and plot keep me guessing and always wondering what we will uncover next, this movie should've been marketed as a mystery more then horror but it truly is not bad. Truly not bad

A study of mental illness, a superior horror film, or both?

Throughout "The Bye Bye Man", I often thought that what I was watching could be construed as a powerful statement on the tragedy of mental illness. Watching his face contort with the inner turmoil of one whose suffering is too much to bear, but who cannot share it with another soul, Douglas Wilson turns in what, in another movie, could be an Academy Award winning performance of a man with schizophrenia.

He is repeatedly victim of apparent hallucinations, all of which seem to be leading him toward senseless violence. Hurting people he loves, and perhaps, more likely, hurting himself.

This will be familiar to anyone who has ever known someone who suffers from mental illness. Wilson's portrayal is close to heartbreaking.

I was surprised that "The Bye Bye Man" never opens the door to that kind of ambiguity, never suggesting that the spectres within it could be evidence of a fractured mind, and not supernatural in origin.

What we have here, nevertheless, is a superior horror movie with a stand-out performance in the lead. It never scared me very much, but it involved me throughout, and, for once, it was not predictable.

For the life of me, I just cannot fathom its woeful 4.3 rating on this very website. Clearly something went very wrong for most viewers of "The Bye Bye Man", and I can't guess what.
