Trivia

The Slender Man first appeared on the "Something Awful" forums in a series of photographs edited to depict a tall, humanoid entity unnoticed by other people in the image but almost always surrounded by, or in close proximity to, children. Since then, many have speculated inspiration and origin of Slender Man in popular media, folk tales and ghost stories from hundreds of years ago, the earliest being a reference to Der Großmann in a German folk story written in 1702. But actually there is no German folk story that's called Der Großmann (which would translate to The Tall Man). See more »

Don't waste your time!!
16 August 2018 | by nashwahnassarSee all my reviews

This movie was horrible . Longest hr & half of my life. It kept dragging and relied on not so scary jump scares. I was impressed with how much the trailer made the movie look scary and good but of course it was the wonders of cutting room floor editing. Plus most scenes in the trailer aren't in the movie!!!!
