Slender Man's Haunting New Trailer Released

The urban legend comes to life in May.

By Chris Morse

IGN has exclusively unveiled the new trailer for this spring's upcoming paranormal urban legend film, Slender Man. There's been a lot of online mythos over the years for this creepy, suit-wearing entity, but the movie's synopsis tells it best in the simplest terms:

Slender Man tells the story of a tall, thin horrifying figure with unnaturally long arms and a featureless face, who is reputed to be responsible for the haunting and disappearance of countless children and teens.

Director Sylvain White will be bringing his take on the story to theaters on May 18th, 2018. The film stars Javier Botet as Slender Man himself, along with Jaz Sinclair, Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Annalise Basso, and Alex Fitzalan. Are you excited for Slender Man or is this story better left a legend?
