From the producer of Oculus and The Strangers comes The Bye Bye Man. When three college friends stumble upon the horrific origins of the Bye Bye Man, they discover that there is only one way to avoid his curse: don't think it, don't say it. But once the Bye Bye Man gets inside your head, he takes control, making you see and do the most unspeakable acts committed by man. Is there a way to survive his possession? Starring Douglas Smith (Ouija) and Carrie Anne-Moss (The Matrix), see the chilling thriller that critics are calling "a paranormal thrill ride that will echo in your nightmares" (Elizabeth Rayne, Den Of Geek).

This movie is not horrible, as the vast majority of reviews will have you believe, is it good? mmmm, well that's debatable as well. Its certainly worth watching, I did find it entertaining. So... first heres a list of pros.
1. Very fresh and original idea for a horror film
2. the special effects of the monster is very well done. The Bye Bye Man and his hound
3. Yes you heard that right his Hound, the BBM has this bad ass super creepy hound that's with him, which was a pleasant and creepy surprise for me. It was an element which really (I felt) added to the BBM.
1. Like many horror films of recent memory the execution of it, just is lacking. Although I like that no character is safe, which is nice, it adds a lot of anxiety. The scenes just seem to fly along without much meaning, we meet a few minor characters that then spell it all out for our protagonists, and boom climax, end of story. These are some glaring pit falls to succumb to for a modern day horror film, and I have to say, whoever is at fault... You should know better by now...
2. Ok acting, the main protagonist is a decent actor, and so it the actor playing BBM, even the CGI for the dog which many other reviewers said sucked, really was pretty damn good. But the actors which surround these people, whom are main characters... very wooden...
Overall, I think that the content was poorly served, and poorly used, the BBM myth, and the BBM (actor/makeup) himself. really great ideas, especially sense the source material comes from a written source.... I really think this movie would be better served more so as an anthology style film, (such as VHS 1 & 2; and similar) a main protagonist somehow stumbles across the stories, in whatever form they are, of those whom have interacted and succumbed to the BBM, cue scene shift, we see those stories one by one, interjected with (obviously) the BBM coming more and more into our main protagonists life, and then bam, after last short story, main protagonist arch comes to its conclusion. I think this format would have served the concept and idea of the BBM far better, and would have kept with what is at the heart of BBM idea. Mystery.
Its worth a watch though, its not crap.
The Bye Bye Man, to sum up in a two words, isn't scary. And that's because we know the story, more importantly, the ending, better than the writers do. A small group of above average looking college kids fight supernatural forces that they don't understand and can't defeat. Consequently, they are picked off one-by-one. (And yes, some of the acting is wooden and some of their decisions are inane. But that's par for the course in a horror flick.) My biggest problem with the movie, though, is the villain; The Bye Bye Man. He's become popular in horror movies of the last few years - a creature with unwieldy power that cannot be defeated. But where did he come from, what's his purpose, why he is murdering people - is he avenging something that happened in his past? Is he a fallen angel? Does he gain power from the death of his victims? We don't know. Jason, Freddy, Aliens - are powerful as well. They also have a backstory, and they have flaws that can be exploited. The Bye Bye Man has no story and no flaw - which in itself makes him terribly flawed. As our poor characters can't wrap their heads around what's going on around them, nor could they stop it even if they could, what's the point? It's more of an exercise than fun or terrifying. For all intent and purposes, we could watch the opening scene and then skip to the end and know everything that happened in-between. Next time, I may just do that. Hasta la vista, Bye Bye Man. I promise not to think it or say it ...
