THE BYE BYE MAN is a US horror film about students who accidentally unleash a supernatural entity.

Threat

Strong sustained threat includes a man threatening his wife with a shotgun and stalking and shooting other women. A woman is struck and killed by a train.

Violence

A man stabs a woman to death with a pair of scissors. In another scene a woman deliberately sets herself on fire, followed by brief sight of her body burning.

Injury detail

There are strong gory images, including characters with their eyeballs missing and blood running from their eye sockets, sight of heavily cut and bloodied victims, and a scene in which a man commits suicide by drinking drain cleaner which causes blood to flow from his mouth.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms (eg 'shit', 'bullshit', 'douches', 'Jesus', 'Christ', 'God', 'hell'). In one scene it is implied that a couple are having sex. A man places a rifle barrel in his mouth, but fails to kill himself as the rifle is empty.
