Meanwhile, at home, his mother’s mooch boyfriend threatens to become his stepfather.
The Bye Bye Man: When three college students find a Ouija board, they receive messages from “The Spirit of the Board” — an entity who claims it has never lived, but it acts as an interlocutor between other entities and the students. The students ask to speak with someone who once lived, whose existence they can verify. They discover a sinister entity who is not only human, but still alive. The Spirit tells them about the entity, known as the Bye Bye Man, who now that they know about him, is on the way to visit them.
It’s Only the End of the World: After 12 years away from home, Louis (Gaspard Ulliel), a writer with a terminal illness, goes back to his hometown to tell his family he’s dying.
