Slender Man has become the most influential internet legend of all time, so much that he lurked into the woods of our subconscious and inspired real life attempted murder.
Now, years after two 12-year-old girls lured a friend into the woods and attempted to stab her to death in Slender Man’s name, the faceless figure in a black suit will be haunting the big screen!
Sony‘s Screen Gems dropped the first trailer for Slender Man on Wednesday, which promises to unsettle audiences as much as the man himself when it opens on May 18.
What the trailer lacks in footage of the mythical creeper it makes up for with *disturbing* visuals — from shots that look like they were edited out of Samara’s Ring VHS to teens stabbing themselves in the face. Slender Man has it all!
Ch-ch-check out the scary trailer (below).
