COMMENTS: THE NARRATIVE OF THE STORY REVOLVES AROUND THE ATTEMPTED PREVENTION BY A YOUNG UNIVERSIRY STUDENT, ELLIOT, WHO HAS INADVERTENTLY SPOKEN THE FORBIDDEN PHRASE "BYE BYE MAN" FROM HAVING THE PHRASE SAID BY ANYONE ELSE. SAYING THE PHRASE RESULTS IN THE UNLEASHING OF AN UNNATURAL KILLER BEAST AND HIS GARGOYLE WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO KILL THE SPEAKER OF THE WORD AND HAVE THEIR BODIES EATEN BY THE GARGOYLE. SLOWLY ELLIOT SEES PEOPLE DYING, OFTEN AS A RESULT OF HALLUCINATIONS THEY HAVE THAT WILL ENHANCE THEIR FEARS, FRIENDS TURN ON EACH OTHER AND KILL EACH OTHER. THE FINAL SOLUTION IS FOR ELLIOT TO KILL HIMSELF, THUS PREVENTING THAT THE WORDS ARE EVER SPOKEN AGAIN.
