When their friend mysteriously disappears, a group of teenage girls explore whether the culprit could be the creepy internet urban legend character Slenderman by summoning him with a ritual. They begin experiencing supernatural phenomena that make them believe the story is real and that they are now being haunted by the Slenderman. Directed by Sylvain White. Based on the character created by Eric "Victor Surge" Knudsen.
The father of the victim whose life was nearly claimed by two girls that worshipped the Slender Man spoke out against the film, citing how they felt disgraced by Hollywood making a film about events that led to tragedy. See more »
I like this style horror-film. it reminds me of the movies i've always loved. it's not unlike the original nightmare/elm street, or scream..
Like Elm street, something dark is happening to a specific group of young people.. Like scream, it's a charming small town, and your average high school clique, have found themselves entangled in something they don't understand..
it's that narrative that i enjoy the most. for me scary movies don't need to be as thought provoking or psychological as , say Hereditary, or the Witch.. they also do not need to be as visceral and bloody as the saw-sequels with all of the torture porn.. For me, this is along the lines of The ring,or vhs, where something awful will happen if you watch something.. it's spooky like candy man, in that you can summon this "monster"... and it's visual scares are not unlike those of One missed call, Shutter, Ouija, etc...
It has all the elements of a good, saturday night scary movie party... it's not to be over studied.
it's not to be judged at an oscar level... it's unfair to even complain that it's been done before, due to the fact that the "hip high school kids are dying" trope is its own genre. The fx are fun, the jump scares are entertaining, the acting is accurate and well above the average for this genre. it's a fun film, if you like a classic date night saturday fright. it doesn't slow down at any point to become boring, and it's also not constantly shoving the villain down your throat like the last two TX Chainsaw movies did..if you enjoyed films like Urban legend, final destination, and the others mentioned above, there's no reason you wouldn't enjoy Slender Man.
