The film slenderman is coming to the big screens,directed by Sylvain White, the film tries to capture the effect that the series of Slender Man memes had on teenagers. Slender Man trailer With a ton of creepy visuals, this film takes off from the popularity of slenderman memes.
After making movies based on video games and comic books, it’s now time that a meme has found place on a film. Slenderman memes became popular around four years ago but after incidents that left teenagers struggling for their lives, attention was called to the fact that internet or pop culture could have pretty drastic effects on people’s minds.
Slender Man, the movie, is about the same faceless creature and the trailer of the film builds on its presence. Visuals of worms crawling, teenagers stabbing themselves force you to cringe a little but doesn’t leave a lasting effect. The creepy visuals don’t hide the fact that this two and a half minute trailer actually gives no insight into the plot and we hope that the film isn’t as disappointing.
The summary of the trailer on YouTube reads, “In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim,” but none of this can be figured out from the trailer. Slender Man is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed by Sylvain White and written by David Birke, based on the Internet meme character created by Eric Knudsen.
