Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.04.18] horror

Ah, the Slender Man. The internet meme which has taken on a life of it's own and even been cited as the cause for murder.

For a moment, it looked like this story movie might be based on the 2014 attempted murder of a teen girl by two of her classmates but from the trailer, Slender Man is just another horror movie based on the popular character.

The first trailer for Slender Man features a slew of mesmerizing images but little in the way of story. The movie, directed by Sylvain White (I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Losers) from a script by David Birke (Elle) seems to revolve around the disappearance of some girls presumably at the hands of the Slender Man.

The disappearance of teen girls at the hands of a supernatural entity isn't novel but I do like the look of this trailer which, though vague, features some really compelling imagery. I'm cautiously curious.

Slender Man opens May 18.

Recommended Release: Paranormal Activity
