(2017) (Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: Three college students move into a creepy, off-campus house and are soon stalked by a malevolent, ancient evil.
- Tired of living on campus, Elliott (DOUGLAS SMITH) convinces his girlfriend, Sasha (CRESSIDA BONAS), and his best friend, John (LUCIEN LAVISCOUNT), to lease a nearby house. But the house is old and rundown and more than a bit creepy. The trio holds their first party, and Sasha invites her psychic friend, Kim (JENNA KANELL), to do a "spiritual cleanse" of the residence.
During a sťance, they inadvertently summon an ancient evil known as The Bye Bye Man (DOUG JONES), who commandeers your thoughts, makes you see and hear things that aren't so, and eventually drives you to madness and even murder. Elliott's brother, Virgil (MICHAEL TRUCCO), and young niece, Alice (ERICA TREMBLAY), become worried about him. But Elliott seeks to protect them by adopting a strategy of "Don't say it, don't think it" regarding The Bye Bye Man's name.
Easier said than done. When tragedy strikes, an intrepid local cop, Detective Shaw (CARRIE-ANNE MOSS), tries to get the truth out of him and his friends. Elliott, though, remains tight-lipped and seeks out the one person who may be able to help -- the Widow Redmon (FAYE DUNAWAY), whose husband died decades earlier at the hands of the fiendish demon.
