'Slender Man' film accused of capitalising on murder attempt

Girls try to kill friend say ‘Slender Man’ made them do Why some theaters won’t screen upcoming Slender Man movie

Now, Slender Man has his own big Hollywood movie from director Sylvain White.

Lifting inspiration from the titular Internet phenomenon, one hatched by Eric Knudsen nearly 10 years ago, Slender Man is a long-brewing thriller from the mind of David Birke, who's perhaps best known for his contribution to Paul Verhoeven's Elle.

The father of a girl who violently attacked a classmate after being inspired by the fictional character Slender Man has criticized a new horror film of the same name as being "extremely distasteful".

Slender Man hits theatres May 18.

The mother told WLWT-TV that she thought the girl was obsessed with Slender Man. It's unclear from the preview whether the movie will include any elements from the Wisconsin case, but in one scene a wall is covered with drawings of Slender Man that resemble sketches one of the girls, Morgan Geyser, drew. For now, while we wait, we can rewatch the trailer and stare at the poster until we finally get a release date.

In December 2017, Weier was then sentenced to be committed to a psychiatric hospital for 25 years, with lawyers for the teenager claiming she was not responsible for her actions as she was mentally ill. But when one of the girls goes missing, they begin to suspect Slender Man might just in fact be real. He's typically depicted as a slim, spidery figure in a black suit with a featureless white face that preys on children.

Geyser's attorney, Anthony Cotton, declined to comment on the movie. Other internet users took up Knudsen's creation, dubbed Slender Man, and proceeded to turn the character into a boogeyman for the 21st century.
