Synopsis

Katie Jensen (Annalise Basso) is one of four high school girls living in the small town of Winsford, Massachusetts. Although the other three girls are more or less happy with their lives, Katie wishes they were older so they could all get out of the town, which she despises.

Shortly after, Katie goes missing. The police launch a search and put up missing posters. The girls go through Katie's computer and find the last site she visited before disappearing is about an entity named Slender Man, who preys on innocent youth. They search the site for clues about how to find Katie, and venture into the woods to find him, but soon discover Slender Man is haunting them.

  • 1 star "slow mixed up story. slender man character confusing at times, not recommending this movie at all"
  • 1 star "No back story for the lore of this legend. Very slow build up and not very engaging."
  • 4 stars "I liked the fact that the movie sticked to the actual theme of the lore of Slender Man and the beginning was perfect for the setting. But then this "ritual" made it fall apart in my opinion for it's nothing like how the origins of Slender Man is, he's suppose to be a supernatural being that preys on those who find or come in contact with him through other's or by luck. "The 3 bells tole" in my opinion sucks for the theme and doesn't really relate to Slender Man at all, they've truly could've chosen something better that could've had something to do with the forest? Or perhaps from Slender Man himself? Adding on to that, it feels more like a game than a summoning or a ritual, like bloody marry or something. But something that was alright was the CGI, the hallucinations were alright, some of them were a bit distasteful in my opinion and the story as well, just like "Always Watching A Marble Hornets Story". What could've been better and scarier if they had done special effects makeup instead of all the CGI, a good example would be "The Void" (2017). It's on Netflix and YouTube if you're curious on what I meant as it being an example. But all in all, I'm not fully satisfied with this movie, but hopefully someone will make a more accurate Slender film or any "Creepypasta" type films in the movie industry in the future."
