The Bye Bye Man
strong sustained threat, violence, gory images
Three college students learn about a supernatural figure who possesses ordinary people and forces them commit horrific acts – can they stop The Bye Bye Man before he gets to them, too?
Every now and then, across the country, a horrific headline crops up and shakes the local community to the core.
Mass murder. Brutal homicide. Violent bloodbath.

Eventually, another appalling crime is committed elsewhere, and triggers the same sense of horror for a different group of people. It seems the world has become a dangerous place, where seemingly ordinary citizens suddenly do terrible things – and nobody can understand why.
But the question is not what is causing them to commit these crimes, but who?
A group of college students in Wisconsin are about to find out.
After discovering a mysterious item etched in strange writing, they learn about The Bye Bye Man – a demonic being who slips into people’s minds and forces them to do gruesome things.
But the more they learn about him, the stronger he becomes. And as their fear grows, so does his power…
