Hadn’t heard about this one till the trailer dropped yesterday. Apparently it was partially filmed in my stomping grounds – around Cleveland Ohio – and it features some FX work by the always amazing Robert Kurtzman and his crew. A pretty amazing cast has been put together as well that includes Carrie-Anne Moss, Faye Dunaway, Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas, and Lucien Laviscount. Doug Jones portrays the bad guy – The Bye Bye Man. What the hell else do you need to know?
Here’s the trailer:
Stacy Title directs the tale which goes as follows:
“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?
From the producer of The Strangers and Oculus 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?”
The Bye Bye Man hits limited theaters on June 3rd. Good news is that it also hits VOD and On Demand the same day.
