Discover the terrifiying and true story behind one of the year's most hotly anticipated horror films The Bye Bye Man in this movie tie-in edition of an underground classic.
Don't think of his name...
In 1990 three Wisconsin graduate students sought to allay their wintertime boredom by playing around with a Ouija board. It was the deadliest mistake they ever made.
The three friends contacted the spirit of a serial killer known as The Bye Bye Man. And the more you think of his name, the more he hones in on you, travelling night and day to find you, until you hear the shrill, steady sound of his whistle letting you know that he is there -- right outside your bedroom door, maybe even speaking in the voice of someone you trust, someone who would never hurt you....
This is the authentically terrifying, true-life story recounted by historian Robert Damon Schneck in a chapter of his underground classic of weird Americana published as The President's Vampire
in 2005. Now, Schneck's tale has been made into The Bye Bye Man
, one of the fall's most eagerly awaited films, already making critics' lists of projected sleeper hits. That terrifying tale is collected with the author's seven additional chapters of twisted history in this tie-in edition, which features poster art from the movie and a new afterword by the author, "Searching for The Bye Bye Man."
One of the scariest true tales ever is now one of the most horrifying real-life stories brought to film.
