For those of you who aren’t all that familiar with the story of Slender Man, here’s a recap:
The Slender Man(also known as Slenderman) is a supernatural creature with nebulously defined characteristics and abilities. Slender Man was first mentioned in Something Awful Forum’s “Create Paranormal Images”. He generally appears (in modern times) as a tall humanoid creature in a black or grey suit, red or black tie, and white shirt. His face is totally white, completely devoid of facial features. He has no hair, and generally has normal-looking bare hands, albeit with fingers longer and bonier than a typical human. Slender Man has been depicted in imagery and literature at anywhere between 6 and 15 feet tall, depending on the situation, though in video he is usually only around 6-7 feet tall. Because of his inexact nature, and differences between accounts, no one has yet determined what, exactly, the Slender Man is. Currently, there are two leading theories as to what the Slender Man may be:the Tulpa EffectandQuantum Theory.
It also adds:
He behaves in what might be seen as a passive-aggressive manner, often stalking targets for years at a time before ever attacking. Its understood that he tends to torture his targets mentally, over long periods of time, using fear and paranoia to drive them to insanity. No one has ever satisfactorily explained the reasoning behind his tactics or the way he chooses his victims, and his purposes and/or motivations have yet to be fully ascertained. He is rarely, if ever, portrayed in a good or benign light and is generally understood to be a malevolent force.
The movie is directed by Sylvain White and the cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Joey King,Julia Goldani Telles,Annalise Basso,Alex Fitzalan, and Kevin Chapman.
