Cringer Man... worst I've seen in a while
10 August 2018 | by Royalty513See all my reviews

There isn't much good I can say. The characters are very bland and forgettable. The approach they went with this movie was just horrible. Summoning slender man was the wrong way to go about it. I thought they would take a more subtle approach. They basically used slender man like the boogeyman in sinister 2. He appeared WAY TOO MUCH. Should of had him more of a shade background character. Not to mention slender man looked horrible. I can't believe they went with the cheesy internet depiction with the suit. The effects look high school grade at best. The only good thing I can say about the movie is that one of the scenes where a main character was making out with a boy from her class at his house tuned out to be the most hilarious scene I've ever seen in my life. I literally died of laughter, cried real tears in the theater at how bad the scene was because she had a slender man hallucination during it and it was just so cringeworthy, silly looking and just flat out terrible. I've never laughed like that in my life. Ending was unsatisfactory and poorly executed. I was going to give it a 2 but the entertainment factor was there because it was so bad that it was good. So I give it a 3 for that. Wait until it hits streaming.
