Trivia

During post-production, Sony and Screen Gems were reportedly extremely nervous about releasing the film, due to the ongoing court cases, negative publicity surrounding the Creepypasta legend, as well as extremely negative responses to early test screenings. This caused the two companies to release the film with very little promotional materials to it, and it did not screen for critics. See more »

How to ruin a completely simple formula
30 August 2018 | by scottbeaudetteSee all my reviews

It's not Slenderman himself that's scary, it's the alone-in-the-dark deafening silence and dread that made the game frightening. Freddy Krueger was scary in the first Nightmare because they didn't focus on the character, but rather the psychological terror. Slenderman tries and fails to build a story around something that only needed to bring a feeling. It tried to get us involved in the lives of shallow and boring cookie-cutter horror-movie fodder characters. The horror genre needs to be left to the artistically gifted and intelligent artists. Slenderman is yet another mass produced generic label product waiting to be forgotten. Watch the trailer, it's way better than the movie. Or better yet, watch The Ritual for a better example of what Slenderman should have looked like.
