The latest horror from Intrepid Pictures (The Strangers, Oculus) is The Bye Bye Man, which recently wrapped shooting in Cleveland, with a theatrical release scheduled for June. The film is directed by Stacy Title (Let The Devil Wear Black, Hood of Horror), from a script based on a short story entitled The Bridge to Body Island, by Robert Damon Schneck.
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.
The three students are played by young up-and-comers Douglas Smith (Antiviral, Ouija), Lancashire-born Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens) and Cressida Bonas, who makes her feature debut this year in drama Tulip Fever. The youngsters lead an exciting cast that also features Michael Trucco, screen legend Faye Dunaway, The Matrix’s Carrie-Anne Moss, who impressed recently in Bernard Rose’s Frankenstein, and Guillermo del Toro regular Doug Jones as The Bye Bye Man himself.
The Bye Bye Man will be unleashed across the US on June 3rd.
