‘Slender Man’ Trailer + Poster: The (Internet) Legend Comes To The Big Screen

Probably won’t be as good as Mable Hornets.

The Slender Man mythos was a popular meme around the early 2010’s. A tall, thin and possibly malevolent figure that appears in photographs and haunts youths, it was only a matter of time that this Eldritch being got his big screen treatment. And yet, based on this first trailer, it feels out of date. Had Hollywood gotten to this sooner (and not with the Screen Gems logo on it), this probably would have been good but as it stands, the trailer is doing nothing for me. Here it is, courtesy of IGN:

And a poster that came out yesterday:

Slender Man comes out on the 18th of May.
