For those unaware about who or what is the Slender Man is, he is a fictional supernatural character that originated as part of a internet creppypasta meme – created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen. He is depicted as a thin, unnaturally tall man with a featureless head and face, wearing a black suit. Stories of the Slender Man commonly feature him stalking, abducting or traumatizing people, particularly children.
Slender Man rose to fame amongst gamers in the hit 2012 game – Slender: The Eight Pages, but since that there has been very little development in a major Slender game. The upcoming movie, which is set to be released in May 2018, is directed by Sylvain White, and stars Joey King, who plays Wren, and Javier Botet, who plays Slender Man himself. Although the film does not have any major actors, it still looks set to terrify the audience. But, will it be any good? Or, is it too late? Only time will tell.
