Goofs

When the group first visits the old house and enters the basement there's a light bulb flickering. When you look closer you can see that it's a new model without the old wire type which used to cause the disconnection and therefore the flickering. Which means the flickering light you see is fake.

Really not that bad. Some people are slating for the sake of it.
13 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just been to see The Bye Bye Man and i can honestly say it isn't that bad. OK so it isn't going to win any awards and its unlikely to be a horror classic. But if you go in expecting little then its a pretty decent horror film. Its pitched somewhere between Sinister and it follows.

Pros

Its quite easy to watch. Fairly decent story

Cons The acting is below average. The story had potential to be really good but seemed to lack in a proper back story and the main characters were lacking any real personality.

Overall If you are looking for an amazing horror film then this probably isn't for you. If you want something fairly enjoyable for 90 minutes i can think of worse films to watch.
