More¬†people than expected¬†opted¬†to “think it”, “say it”¬†and¬†see¬†it —¬†The Bye Bye Man,¬†that is.

Rounding out the top five for weekend gross at $15.3 million, the low-budget horror-thriller about college students battling a supernatural entity with a silly name managed to outperform the much higher-budgeted releases of¬†Monster Trucks and Patriot’s Day on its opening weekend.

With a budget of only $7.4 million (via Box Office Mojo), The Bye Bye Man beat projections to earn $5.43 million on Friday the 13th, making it the number 2 film at the box office its first day, narrowly beat by Hidden Figures.

The Bye Bye Man was directed by Stacy Title and stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Faye Dunaway, Douglas Smith and Doug Jones.
