The Twilight Zone: The Original Series: Season Three DVD boxset   (TV series review)

The Bye Bye Man (2017) (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Well, there are a couple of things that one can praise ‘The Bye Bye Man’ for in an attempt to give this incredibly unoriginal teen screen horror showcase some flimsy credit.
