I needed to see this for myself to see why it got so much hate. Yeah, it was pretty poor.
Terrible acting, especially from Douglas Smith and Cressida Bonas. Leigh Whannell has also regressed. Lucien Laviscount wasn't too bad but I'm probably just blinded by his hotness to be honest.
It is quite a snoozefest. One jump scare got me near the beginning but this isn't even creepy and the deaths/gore are pretty dire.
The Bye Bye Man himself looked pretty cool at the end (his dog looked super shit though). Also nothing was ever really explained, it all just kind of happened.
I didn't gain much from this but it didn't infuriate me either ha ha. Although if they had said that line (you know the one) even one more time my blood might have began to boil.
Would I recommend it, probably not.
Don't say it, don't think it, don't watch it.
