Sex & Nudity

  • 2 teens are about to make out on the couch but it's stopped when one of them hallucinates
  • It is implied that 4 girls watch porn together at their sleepover. (It is briefly described later on, but never actually shown.).

Violence & Gore

  • Slender Man has some violence but nothing graphic or bloody. There was supposed to be a scene of a girl stabbing herself in the eye, needles going in eyes in split video scenes of Slender Man video, there was supposed to be a suicide scene also. But many scenes that were too scary or graphic had to be cut for a "PG-13 rating" it wasn't the movie we were supposed to get.

Profanity

  • 1 use of "Jesus
  • At least 5 uses of hell and which 1 use of hell appears on a text on a phone screen.
  • 2 uses of the middle finger 2 uses of the F-word

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 4 girls drink a bunch of vodka once there at a sleepover

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • This movie has many jumpscares and things related to the subject. It also has graphic scenes.
  • A girl while in her room receives a email on her phone that is revealed to be a recording of someone outside her house moving towards it in a first person perspective, she moves towards her door even as the mysterious figure slowly moves into her house and up the stairs towards her. A truly frightening scene that people who have experienced actual stalking will likely feel deeply disturbed by.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • In the biology class scene, a girl stabs and cuts into an eyeball. No blood is shown, however, there is some liquid visible. Not very gruesome.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Slender Man may be frightening for some viewers
  • A woman takes another girl into the forest and has her perform what is essentially an internet ritual which the girl happily does completely unaware that she is the actual sacrifice. The scene is truly disturbing and is similar to the actual real events involving the Slender Man character this makes it probably the most disturbing moment in the whole movie.
  • The movie really plays up the potential horror of both the internet and pop culture as nearly all these incidents would be dismissed as a joke or at least insane if real which the movie acknowledges. A character becomes a crazed board line cult member by simply entering a chat room and listening to just one person in their paranoia and desperation. A scene with a phone video is very similar to something a stalker would actually do and with social media likely could do.
  • There is a scene in which Hallie (one of the main characters) has a hallucination while at a hospital checking on a girl named Lizzie (her friend; which has been traumatized by Slender Man after presumably watching the video) which shows a few scary visuals. Tentacles popping out of eyes and mouth of a disfigured Hallie, images of trees, and then finally Slenderman outstreching his hand and gliding towards one of the girls (Katie?)
  • There is a scene at a library where Slender Man starts chasing Wren; one of the protagonists in the movie. The creature then attacks her, making her face disappear (she then wakes up for it to be a horrifying daydream). Possibly one of the best scenes in the movie.
