What drives people to commit violent crimes and unspeakable acts? The Bye Bye Man. Horror’s newest boogeyman is a bit like the Candyman in that whatever you do, don’t say his name. Uh oh, too late! And the more scared you are, the stronger he gets. Having driven a husband to a mass shooting spree in 1969, this malevolent spirit is summoned in the present by a group of college students who discover the film’s title scrawled in their rundown house, and of course foolishly read it aloud. Then it’s bye bye, man. Supposedly “based on true events”, The Bye Bye Man evokes the haunted house chills of Sinister with bonus Faye Dunaway and Leigh Whannell.
