At DigZoo we love horror films and stories and there’s nothing out there that’s quite as scary as the Slenderman. The terrifying internet legend started out as a simple post on the Something Awful forums but since then has exploded across the web and taken our nightmares hostage. There are thousands of stories featuring the Slenderman and some of them are even good! But now, for the first time, the Slenderman will be getting a big-budget big-screen adaptation in the form of the new Sony produced movie, Slender Man!
The trailer, featured below, is positively terrifying! This is going to be one hell of a scary film and we cannot wait to see it when it releases May this year.
The movie has had received some controversy for being based on the Slenderman because of a violent killing that occurred in 2014. The incident involved two 12-year-old girls who took another teenager into a forest and stabbed her to death. Another incident occurred when a 13-year-old girl in Ohio attacked her mother with a knife. In both cases the young girls involved stated that their motivation for the attacks was to please the Slenderman. Hopefully, the Slenderman won’t continue to inspire any further violence. And with any luck, maybe the release of a big budget movie will finally remind people that the character is 100% fictional and in-no-way real.
