Slender Man, a.k.a Slenderman, “gets into your head,” says a tormented girl in the trailer for the upcoming horror flick based on the scary internet meme. “Like a virus.”
Set in a small Massachusetts town, the story begins with four girls performing a ritual as a means to debunk the existence of the Slender Man who is blamed for the disappearances and suicides of young girls.
“It’s him,” a girl in a darkened forest says to herself as the ghostly figure appeared.
The cast includes Joey King, Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso and Javier Botet. Producers are Bradley J. Fischer, James Vanderbilt, William Sherak, Robyn Meisinger and Sarah Snow.
Slender Man hits theaters May 2018.
