Over a week ago, nightstands featuring a warning about The Bye Bye Man popped up on Craigslist across the country. And now, two more have been uncovered in NY and LA in a live scavenger hunt. The first ones to find these nightstands in undisclosed locations will win a cash prize. Details here. And live feed of the nightstands here.
In the film, a group of college students move into an old house and bring the furniture out of the basement, including a nightstand which Elliot (Douglas Smith) places next to his bed. The inside drawer has “don’t say it, don’t think it” scrawled all over the liner paper, hiding the carved words “The Bye Bye Man” underneath.
The Bye Bye Man opens in theaters Friday the 13th, January 2017. It recounts a series of terrifying events experienced by three Wisconsin college students, played by Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas and Lucien Laviscount. Michael Trucco plays the brother of one the students, whose mind has been invaded by the unstoppable Bye Bye Man (Doug Jones).
“Set in 1990s Wisconsin, when three college students move into an old house off campus, they unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as The Bye Bye Man, who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name. The friends must try to save each other, all the while keeping The Bye Bye Man’s existence a secret to save others from the same deadly fate.”
The Bye Bye Man also stars Carrie-Anne Moss and Faye Dunaway.
Stacy Title directed from Jonathan Penner’s script, based on Robert Damon Schneck’s short story “The Bridge to Body Island.” Trevor Macy produced for Intrepid, and Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman produced for Los Angeles Media Fund.
