We’re always seeking fun ways to deliver unique content to our Bloody Disgusting readers, so when STX asked if we’d allow Stacy Title to be a guest editor this week, we figured why the fuck not?
Title, who directed the 1999 Let the Devil Wear Black and the 2006 Hood of Horror, is behind The Bye Bye Man, which opens in theaters this coming Friday the 13th of January.
Leading up to this weekend’s release, Title has a variety of stories planned (from her favorite boogeyman to sharing some of her horror influences), while also providing exclusive commentary on the trailer for her The Bye Bye Man.
Let’s show Stacy how awesome the Bloody Disgusting readers are and give her a warm welcome!
The Bye Bye Man 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.
