In the past few years many strange things have emerged from the Internet. One of those things is Slender Man, who started life as part of a creepypasta story in 2009, before growing and morphing as other people brought new attributes and ideas to the horror character. It’s also got a bit too close to real life on a few occassions, not least when two 12-year-old girls stabbed someone 19 times and almost killed them in the hope of pleasing the fictional character.
Now though Slender Man is getting its own movie.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim.’
Take a look at the first trailer for the movie below. The film is due in cinemas May 18th.
