I make my living mostly on the internet, but I cheerfully admit I’m not quite Online enough to know what the deal is with Slenderman, the internet monster that has been linked to brainwashing teens into committing violent acts over the last several years. But I also admit that in the case of Slender Man, an upcoming horror film loosely based on Slenderman, that lack of knowledge probably won’t matter much.
Slender Man is billed thusly: “The urban legend gets the feature film treatment.” That puts it in a proud tradition of horror movies based on creepy urban legends passed around by teenagers, and the recently released trailer for the movie doesn’t seem to promise any new breaks in the ground. Take a look for yourself, IF YOUR NERVES CAN STAND IT:
Slender Man arrives in theaters on May 18th, 2018, so keep your eyes peeled (so to speak) for more as we get closer to that date.
