Slender Man Trailer

It may not be destined to break records like the recent version of Stephen King’s It, but based on the prevalence and awareness of the character alone, the upcoming Slender Man movie definitely has the potential to be the next big horror hit. That being said, the first trailer doesn’t look particularly inspired. Based on the urban legend that began life as an internet meme, the movie revolves around the faceless, shadowy figure with long arms who stalks and abducts children. Of course, this trailer doesn’t really lay out any sort of story, it just focuses on random creepy imagery which I suppose is all Slender Man was ever really about anyway. Slender Man is directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, The Losers) and it hits theatres on May 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Looks like straight to dvd rubbish.

    Agreed. Anyone wanting a Slender Man horror fix should watch the true crime HBO doc, Beware the Slenderman.

    Not sure they can pull this off. The HBO doc was excellent!
