A travesty of horror that is scary to watch for all the wrong reasons

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

In the late 1960s, a man mysteriously murders all those closest to him after he finds that they have merely uttered the name of a murderous entity. In the present day, several millennials move into this house, which is just off campus, and begin to experience mysterious events that freak them out. They too become aware of the existence of 'the Bye Bye Man', and learn if they even think or say his name, they will be inviting death upon themselves (gee, at least with the Candyman it was five times. And even then you had to look in a mirror...)

The Bye Bye Man wasn't even the Say Hello Man, appearing out of nowhere in theatres in early January before saying 'bye bye'...almost immediately. And after watching this execrable dreck, it's not hard to see why. It's a January film all over, one to usher out without much fuss in the early part of the year while everyone's still recovering, that sadly invaded my eyes and my senses, even after it had been on DVD for a while. It's just a typical low rent effort, with slightly glossier production values and cover design, that made it to theatres while a tonne of similar Z grade trash was released straight to DVD.

It starts quite intriguingly, however the promising opening fails to tie in coherently with what transpires on screen, which just descends into a load of meaningless guff. No connection is established between the man committing the murders in the house and the kids moving in, other than the whole 'saying or thinking the Bye Bye Man' thing, which they could have done anywhere. At no point is it ever scary or thrilling in any way, and at any rate, all of these youngsters are typically unlikeable, a load of SJW types, the sort who wear t-shirts of bands that were around before they were born (in this case, Joy Division...not even an American band!) and look like an everyday triviality would frighten them half to death, never mind a supernatural monster.

I really don't think a horror franchise is going to be established with this one, unless it's an endless stream of straight to DVD non-events, which is really what this monstrosity should be defined as. *

For a movie without a massive budget it does well

The negative reviews for this movie are unjustified. For a what is a fairly low budget in this day and age it did well. The acting was good, the plot was intense and the twists were brilliant.If they had a higher budget I'm sure they could have done even better, and I'm sure a sequel would do well.

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.
