actual behind the scenes info for the Bye Bye Man:
- the bye bye man’s backstory was going to be that he was a black man with albinism for no reason. it got cut because the director thought it was too “intense” and racially complex. i don’t know what that means.
- the director does not think police can follow trains or figure out where trains come from. she said, “the reason he rides the train is because when he was murdered, his body was put on a train and sent far away so [authorities] wouldn’t be able to track the fact that the people who murdered him murdered him.”
- the choo choo man drops coins throughout the film. it is never explained why. apparently, they coins are psychically connected to his meat dog’s eyes and allow it to watch people.
