The Bye Bye Man Reviews

The Bye Bye Man doesn't offer more than a few banging doors to startle viewers, and that's hardly enough.

There are much better alternatives to The Bye Bye Man such as The Babadook, Candyman, and even I Know What You Did Last Summer. You may want to watch those instead.

Tiresome and tepid. My advice? Don't watch it.

Don't think it. Don't say it. Don't see it. Bye bye, man.

This movie tries to gaslight you into thinking its central baddie is actually well-thought-out (and is, presumably, worthy of sequels that God willing won't happen), when really it's the most generic crap, both in terms of substance and character design.

Kill it before it lays eggs.

To call it a disaster would be unfair as there is some spooky, cheesy fun to be had, but the plotting is somehow both slow and rushed, the writing is poor, and the performances aren't great.

Director Stacy Title... plays the whole thing with a straight face, which does the movie no favours, on top of a weak script, phoned-in performances, cheap effects and a poorly explained central mythology that leave viewers cold.

Many horror movies are bad, but it's rare to find one that, like The Bye Bye Man, is so bad it's funny. Whether the problem was in the puzzling screenplay or in the production itself, something went dismally, hysterically wrong.
January 19, 2017
The script teems with horror clichs (scribbled drawings, a creepy kid, the skeptical protagonist looking up the demon's origins on a library computer), and everything from the acting to the makeup to the special effects is atrocious.

Most everything about The Bye Bye Man is familiar.
January 19, 2017
...a cheap, watered-down exercise in pointless PG-13 horror.

The Bye Bye Man is the rare bad movie whose staggering level of ineptitude is practically a recommendation.
January 17, 2017
There is a story here but it needs a better writer and director to flesh out the scenes and characters.
January 16, 2017
One of the most inept films I've ever seen. Cheaply made, poorly directed, badly acted, oddly edited, and ultimately insultingly stupid.
January 14, 2017
Maybe all will be explained in the sequel. If so, your writer is happy to remain uneducated.
January 13, 2017
It's not a good movie, exactly, and there are certainly better horror films around... But if you want to waste an hour and a half jumping at shadows, The Bye Bye Man will certainly do the job.
January 13, 2017
The Bye Bye Man is one of the most amateurish wide-release movies I've ever seen. Why anyone thought this thing was in good enough shape to warrant an opening in more than 2,000 theaters is a mystery.
January 13, 2017
It just doesn't work, and the likelihood I'll think or say this unremarkable film's name again anytime soon is nominal at best.
January 13, 2017
Although it lacks originality it plays a little better than the silly title suggests.
