‘The Bye Bye Man’ Trailer: Doug Jones’ Boogeyman Will Make You Do Bad Things

by Britt Hayes April 10, 2016 @ 3:59 PM
You wouldn’t know it from the first trailer, but apparently The Bye Bye Man stars Carrie-Anne Moss and Faye Dunaway — two incredibly great actors who would make this horror flick an instant draw for a lot of fans. Unfortunately, The Bye Bye Man looks like a late ’90s / early ’00s horror film, complete with an opening that mimics The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and a boogeyman who seems like he’d be right at home among the villains of the post-Blair Witch wave of studio horror.

One of our most anticipated films of the year is The Neon Demon, Nicolas Winding Refn’s long-awaited follow-up to Only God Forgives.

Having been steadily employed by AMC and adjacent to all things Walking Dead for several seasons now, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick isn’t likely to turn on the zombie smash thriller, even after a controversial finale.

After being dealt some bad luck in the studio system with the underwhelming action flick Aeon Flux and the undervalued horror comedy Jennifer’s Body, director Karyn Kusama emerges with her best film since she made her feature debut with 2000's Girlfight.
