These ‘The Bye Bye Man’ Clips Can’t Be Erased Once You’ve Said His Name!

We laughed when Ray thought of Stay Puft as the Earth’s destroyer in Ghostbusters. But what if he thought of something even more menacing, like Freddy Krueger?

This is the set up of STX’s The Bye Bye Man, in theaters Friday the 13th, January 2017. The selling point is that once you say his name, or even think it, he’ll come for you. His name gives him power. Every trailer, TV spot and piece of footage has reiterated this. But most of all, these four clips hammer it come.

In one clip, we see why the Bye Bye Man is hanging out in a library – one of the kids is attempting to erase his name; but it doesn’t matter, he’s already been called. Another shows a seance in which the rules are reiterated, and the same stupid ass kid says his name, which results in, well, you get it. There’s two more that stabilize tis idea even more, but mostly they’re actually pretty entertaining clips…

    More PG-13 “Horror”. Pass. Plus the name is god awful. Next year it’ll be: Beware of the…Poo-Poo Man!! Keep your toilet seat down…

    When did Hollywood’s balls drop? PG-13 shit sucks! Greed has killed horror.

    It is uncanny how most troubles in horror lead back to one stupid ass kid. Has anyone actually screened this as of yet? PG-13 is a bit of a scarlet letter.

    No amount of clips will make this movie look good.
