Watch Here: Slender Man' Movie Gets Terrifying First Official Trailer

With that out of the way, there's a "Slender Man" movie set to debut on May 18, 2018 and today IGN revealed our first look at the poster. I don't know about you, but I can't sleep at night after a scary film, but I still toddle off the to cinema to watch them the day that they are released. The picture is directed by Sylvain White, who also helmed 2007's "Stomp the Yard", and stars Javier Botet as Slender Man.

This new film follows four high school girls as they attempt to debunk the myth of Slenderman.

These girls lured one of their friends into the woods and, in a park restroom, stabbed her 19 times.

The victim recovered from her injuries and the attackers received varying sentences in mental health facilities.

By nearly all accounts, Blue Isle Studios' sequel to Slender: The Eight Pages with Slender: The Arrival wasn't too great, but that hasn't stopped the legend of the Slender Man from creeping around in the corners of our collective consciousness. He said local theaters shouldn't show it.

Smith had been a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle officers pulled over for speeding in North Little Rock around 1:00 p.m. On Wednesday, people gathered at the curb where the incident occurred, leaving flowers, candles and balloons in honor of Smith.

Sony Pictures - parent company of Screen Gems - has yet to offer a response to Weier's criticisms.

The Slender Man trailer is upon us and horror fans might want to prepare themselves. Days after the Wisconsin stabbing, a 13-year-old girl in Hamilton County, Ohio, attacked her mother with a knife.

The first known use of the character was on an internet forum in 2009 by a user called Eric Knudsen. Knudson's entry consisted of two black and white photos, each with kids and a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit and a white face which is devoid of facial features in the background. The character gained tons of popularity over the last half decade thanks to Parsec Studios' Slender video games.
