A group of teenage girls watch a mysterious video that unleashes a supernatural, faceless humanoid called ”The Slender Man” in their lives. A horror movie that borrows an online meme phenomenon created by Victor Surge and takes advantage of how it has become an urban legend. Some in the audience will also recognize influences from Asian horror predecessors like Ringu (1998). Still, it’s obvious that the filmmakers have no idea what to do with their skinny bogeyman. The cast is weak and the film is lethargically paced.
