'The Bye Bye Man' - Movie Review


'The Bye Bye Man'A/HorrorDirector: Stacy TitleCast: Carrie-Anne Moss, Doug Jones, Cressida Bonas, Douglas Smith, Faye Dunaway, Lucien Laviscount, Michael TruccoRating: 

This Stacy Title directed cinematic adaptation by Jonathan Penner of Robert Damon Schneck's horror pulp fiction titled “The Bridge to Body Island” is nothing but a repetitive saga of gore fashioned on the premise that people are susceptible to repetitive forebodings of a sinister nature.

This film feels a little too fragmented and discontinuous to make logical sense. But the repetitive, suggestive audio crawl 'Don't Think it, Don't say it' that goes on and on through the narrative much like a broken record, is meant to play havoc with your susceptibility to such para-psychological ruminations – may sound stupid but it probably works up a havoc for those who believe in such gibberish.

The prologue chronicles a horrible event that is a forewarning of what is to come. A trio of Wisconsin college students—Elliot (Douglas Smith), his girlfriend Sasha (Cressida Bonas) and his best pal John (Lucien Laviscount), move into a run-down old house that they can barely afford, off–campus. But they barely settle in when weird things begin to happen.

I can't but imagine how this film came to be made. Seems to me a bunch of iterators got hold of the source material and decided to make their own version of the ideal genre flick. But it doesn't work out as one, even if all the elements appear to be lifted from better examples of a similar kind. So what we have here is a conjuring of the final destination triggered by the Bye Bye man who appears to gain venom when his victims fail to gain control over their own impulsivity. There's nothing to be frightened about here other than the cut-paste terror action , poor narrative construction and vague performances. And to think that Faye Dunaway and Carrie Ann Moss take on non-stellar roles in such a C grade horror flick.. Quite horrifying that!
