Dark Chicago has received a batch of tickets to a special advance screening of The Bye Bye Man on January 11th; to win a set, just visit Passes are first-come, first-served, and these events tend to fill to capacity, so if you win, plan to arrive early. Location and time details will come with the passes.

People commit unthinkable acts every day. Time and again, we grapple to understand what drives a person to do such terrible things. But what if all of the questions we’re asking are wrong? What if the cause of all evil is not a matter of what… but who?

From the producer of OCULUS and THE STRANGERS comes THE BYE BYE MAN, a chilling horror-thriller that exposes the evil behind the most unspeakable acts committed by man. When three college friends stumble upon the horrific origins of the Bye Bye Man, they discover that there is only one way to avoid his curse: Don’t think it, don’t say it. But once the Bye Bye Man gets inside your head, he takes control. Is there a way to survive his possession?

The Bye Bye Man opens nationwide on Friday, January 13th.
