Horror adaptation of the viral Slender Man lore, a meme created by a user of the Something Awful forum.

When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she's his latest victim.

The most perfunctory horror picture I've seen in some time.

The more we see him, the more he moves, the less scary he is. Go back to the internet, Slender Man, you're scarier there.

Ring rip-off that's a waste of your time.

Promising source material and a talented cast are squandered in a stale, rigidly formulaic J-horror wannabe.
