Opening with an intentionally mystifying scene of mass murder in the late ’60s, the movie shifts to the present day, and a familiar scenario: three college students, Elliot (Douglas Smith), his girlfriend, Sasha (Cressida Bonas), and his best pal, John (Lucien Laviscount), have rented a spacious off-campus house. Their “sensitive” (that is, psychic) friend, Jenna Kanell, feels the place has problems. Duly, doors open themselves, cabinets unlatch and a séance reveals the never-to-be-said name of the title character. Soon poor Elliot is seeing a fellow in a long cowled robe, and he’s not a member of the drone rock group Sunn O))) offering to play a free house party.

Movie Review: ‘The Bye Bye Man’

What comes next is a very credible (that is, actually scary) series of shock scenes, followed by the inevitable further exposition. This is usually where such movies fall apart, but Jonathan Penner’s sharp script (from a story by Robert Damon Schneck) and Stacy Title’s assured direction keep the heat on, and there’s some resourceful misdirection that deepens the story and intensifies the scares. It helps that the added moments of humor acknowledge that the movie’s potent concept is also, well, ridiculous. Faye Dunaway and Carrie-Anne Moss, in small roles, contribute welcome Old Hollywood and genre-specific cred and chops. I saw this movie with a sneak-peek audience of regular New York movie folk, and it worked a treat on them. Got me good a couple of times, too. wallpaper photo model fashion fashionweek photographer popularphoto hairstylist makeup instagood bestoftheday photooftheday day likes good female world beauty art style photos amazing bride travel camera canon nikon vacation happy farm love nature naturelovers hd for #photo #model #fashion #fashionweek #photographer #popularphoto #hairstylist #makeup #instagood #bestoftheday #photooftheday #day #likes #good #female #world #beauty #art #style #photos #amazing #bride #travel #camera #canon #nikon #vacation #happy #farm #love #nature #naturelovers
