The twelfth prompt for Inktober is “forget”. There were a few possible choices for this word. I decided to choose a movie that seemed to fall under the radar. It was a movie I randomly scrolled across on Netflix one day and I had never heard of it before. I was running out of “obviously good” scary movies on there that I hadn’t seen so I broadened my horizon to movies that “probably were not going to be great but I’ll give it a shot”.
The movie is called The Bye Bye Man (2017). You can probably see from the title why I had predicted it wasn’t going to be that great. The Bye Bye Man?? The title is not great but like I said, “I’ll give it a shot”.
By the time I had finished the movie I was actually impressed with it. It is a bit creepy, a little cliché with it’s scares but still creepy. The story was also very entertaining. I enjoyed how it started; I was instantly hooked. The ending was also good and left you yelling at the screen saying, “NO! Don’t do it!”. Everything in between was pretty good too. Nothing spectacular but far from boring. It kept you on your toes, wondering what was going to happen next. When the movie ended I was very surprised that something I came into thinking, “Okay, this is going to be bad” actually turned out to be pretty good. It’s safe to say, I liked this movie!
Have you ever seen The Bye Bye Man? What did you think about it? Leave a comment below! Check back tomorrow for the next Inktober prompt, kind.
Bye bye, free spirits!
