The Bye Bye Man – an upcoming american supernatural horror film directed by Stacy Title and written by Jonathan Penner, based on a short story called The Bridge to Body Island by Robert Damon Schneck and will star Doug Jones. Three college students move into an old off campus house, where they find themselves hunted by a supernatural entity called The Bye Bye Man (Jones) who may be responsible for possessing various people and causing them to commit killing sprees throughout recent history..
A bit Creepypastaish but might just work.

WENDIGO WINDIGO…

WENDIGO/WINDIGO MOVIES

My horror bro The Creepy Critter mentioned Wendigo Wednesday’s on his/it’s blog and that got me thinking about Wendigo movies.. It’s an odd subject as they are portrayed in many different ways in many different movies. Some they are spirits, other movies just another name for a werewolf…

What’s the dictionary definition? “Well a Wendigo is a creature appearing in legends of the Algonquian peoples, it is thought of variously as a malevolent cannibalistic spirit that could possess humans or a monster that human could physically transform into.”

Sounds pretty cool huh! Personally I don’t think any movie has done it full justice yet, but out of the ones I have seen I think Ravenous would be my favourite.

I would love to see a movie where the Windigo/Wendigo is shown as a possession that spreads from one person to the next feeding as it goes. Similar to the Thing (1982) or Evil Dead (1981).
