The story on which the film is based, "The Bridge to Body Island," has a much more complex mythology for the Bye Bye Man: He was an albino born in New Orleans in 1912 who ran away as a child and became a derelict who lived in a train yard. After going blind he began murdering people and cutting out their eyes and tongues, which he sewed together and brought to life using voodoo. The resultant creature became the Bye Bye Man's literal seeing-eye dog, helping him hunt his prey. Several elements from the story- notably the dog and the motif of trains-- were retained for the movie, though their purpose is left more elliptical. See more »

I have wanted to watch this for ages and I wish I didn't... I didn't go with high expectations after reading the reviews & it's a good job I didn't have high expectations. The acting was bad I didn't get the 'Horror' vibe from no where in the film it felt more like a thriller to me with a creepy hooded guy & his dog coming into it now and again
