If you're looking to kick off the 2017 movie year in terrifying style, taking advantage of Hollywood's recent January horror offering is a great way to do it. Premiering on January 13, 2017 (and yes, that is a Friday the 13th), we will be getting The Bye Bye Man from STX Entertainment.
You can see a creepy trailer for the film during this week's episode of The Walking Dead on AMC, or you can watch it exclusively here on Movie Pilot below:
The story of the Bye Bye Man is actually quite a creepy premise and is based on a supposedly true story of an entity responsible for random possessions that sparked killing sprees around the country. Whether this story is about a real entity or the metaphorical manifestation of fear in the human psyche, that is definitely something to make you feel uneasy. Just remember that the more you fear him, the more he controls you.
The Bye Bye Man is no doubt set to bring some jump scares and nightmarish visuals (even if it is only PG-13) when it hits theaters in January. Here's the synopsis:
"Set in 1990s Wisconsin, the film follows three college students who move into an old, off-campus house, where they find themselves preyed on by a malevolent supernatural entity called 'The Bye Bye Man.' They must find a way to save themselves while keeping the whole thing secret to protect anyone else from becoming the entity’s next victim. And upon first glance, while the premise of the story may seem similar to same-old storylines covered by other horror flicks, rest assured that this one definitely breaks the boundaries of the conventional genre."
The Bye Bye Man premieres on January 13, 2017.
