THE FIRST SLENDER MAN TRAILER GETS IN YOUR HEAD
An unnerving dread permeates the first trailer for Slender Man, a horror film adaptation of the infamous creepypasta meme that inspired an actual attempted murder. Javier Botet stars as Slender Man in the Screen Gems film, which hits theaters May 18th.
Director Sylvain White (The Losers) cycles through a series of disturbing images: young girls standing in a cemetery, distraught parents, flashlights scanning a forest at night and crawling maggots. “Where is my daughter?” a man’s voice intones. “People don’t just disappear,” another adds.
The clip builds toward a disturbing climax as the titular supernatural villain appears to possess several characters. One girl screams while restrained to a hospital bed; another stabs herself in the face with a scalpel during anatomy class. “He gets in your head, like a virus,” one of them explains.
The “Slender Man” (or “Slenderman”) character – a lanky, faceless, suit-clad man – developed on the Something Awful forums in 2009 and developed a devoted online following. However, the story took a frightening turn into real life when, in 2014, two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls attempted to murder their classmate as a sacrifice to the fictional monster.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
