‘The Bye Bye Man’ Author Robert Damon Schneck Reacts to Death of Film Director Stacy Title

In an exclusive interview with PopHorror, The Bridge to Body Island author Robert Damon Schneck said:

“Not many writers get a chance to see their work made into a movie and Stacy Title was part of that. It was wonderful to see my work made into a film, and her passing is very sad.”

Schneck, also known as America’s Historian of the Strange, wishes her family well at this difficult time.

It was announced on Jan. 11, 2021, that Title died after a three year struggle with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Title directed the 2017 film, The Bye Bye Man, which adapted Schneck’s short story, “The Bridge to Body Island.” The story was found in his 2005 book. The President’s Vampire: Strange-but-True Tales of the United States.

The movie featured genre stalwarts like Doug Jones, Carrie-Ann Moss, Michael Trucco and Academy Award Winner Faye Dunaway. The Bye Bye Man was about a group of college students who encounter the ghoulish Bye Bye Man (played by Jones). He would manipulate the unsuspecting into murder.
