Horror Thriller - While this horror film is PG-13 and thus has only moderate bloodshed,
it is still a supernatural slasher film and thus has a fair amount of
violence and intense sequences make the film not for kids; there is
also some language and mild sexual content. The known stars in the cast,
Carrie-Anne Moss and Faye Dunaway, only have very small parts. Teens
and young adults are the target audience.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 7 S-words; 1 GD; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Loudly heard sex and brief, unrelated nudity. VIOLENCE: Shootings, stabbings, killings with moderate blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol at a party. ACTION: Chases and fighting. COMEDY: None.
Rolling StoneFull Review Very Poor There may be worse horror films than The Bye Bye Man this year, but there will be none that shows more contempt for its intended audience. You can insert your own joke about the "bye bye" in the title here.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average Without a complicated villain to add nuance to the otherwise utterly conventional surface, though, the film falls short by relying too much on Elliot's anxieties to fuel the narrative. The film suffers from unintentional or at least tonally dissonant humor...
