The Bye Bye Man Movie Synopsis:
The movie begins with a mass murder in the late 1960s. A man turns into a serial killer and murders many people in his area while chanting the phrase, “Don’t think it! Don’t say it.” He prohibits everyone to call out “the name” continuously. Before killing his neighbors, he enquires if any of them spoke “the name”.
Fast forward to the modern time, a group of three college students- Elliot, Sasha (Elliot’s girlfriend) and John- move into a house near their college. Soon, they notice mysterious things happening to them- Sasha gets an inexplicable cough while Elliot finds puzzling coins that reappear all the time. On further investigation, he discovers writing which says “Don’t think it. Don’t say it.” Again and again and a name was written at the end: the Bye Bye Man. The name gets mentioned during a séance.
Sasha’s health declined further while Elliot and John started seeing hallucinations and bizarre activities. Elliot started suspecting that Sasha and John are having an affair. Virgil, Elliot’s brother becomes skeptical. Elliot starts investigating into the matter; Kim is killed after she is struck by a train. Elliot is suspected of Kim’s murder but he goes off the hook when Kim’s suicide note uncovers that she had murdered her roommate and intended to kill Sasha, John, and Elliot.
Elliot meets Mrs. Watkins, the librarian who gives him detailed information about the Bye Bye man. There were incidents before related to the Bye Bye man: a teenager murdered his family and claimed to a reporter that the Bye Bye man forced him into it. It turns out that the same reporter commits a mass murder in the late 1960s after he investigated about the Bye Bye man. He soon committed suicide when he realized that people already knew about this Bye Bye man. Elliot pays a visit to the reporter’s widow who informs Elliot about the Bye Bye man. She tells him that the curse causes lunacy, hallucinations and ultimately death. When he arrives, coins reappear mysteriously and people can hear sounds of trains. The only way to prevent him from possessing you is to not speak his name or think of him. If anyone knows about the Bye Bye man, they must die and the first person to know must kill themselves as well.
Elliot hits Mrs. Watkins by his car in an accident. She was on her way to kill Elliot and had already killed her family. He escapes the wreckage and goes back home to protect Sasha and tries to come up with a plan to avoid thinking about the Bye Bye man.
At the house, John and Sasha are victims of strange hallucinations. She hallucinates John to be Elliot while John hallucinates Sasha to be the dead body of Kim. When Elliot reaches home, he was mortified to see that Sasha was being stabbed by John. He fights back with John and shoots him. But it turns out that it was not John whom he just killed- it was Sasha.
Elliot sees another hallucination but this time he kills himself with the gun. Virgil and his daughter leave the house just before it bursts into flames.
