Full Trailer for Sylvain White's 'Slender Man' Horror Arriving in August

"Those who hear the three bells toll accept his invitation." Sony's Screen Gems has debuted the second, full-length trailer for the spooky Slender Man movie, based on the internet meme/myth about a tall, creepy, "slender" man that haunts kids. The whole Slender Man idea has already worked its way into pop culture and reality, and of course they have made a horror movie about it. Slender Man stars Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Annalise Basso, Jaz Sinclair, Javier Botet, Kevin Chapman, and Michael Reilly Burke. This looks like it has some creepy moments, but doesn't look like anything other than just another creepy horror movie about a weird creature/spirit that follows people around. Who knows if it's actually any good or just a horror they're dumping in late summer, after being delayed from its release in May this year.
Here's the second official trailer for Sylvain White's Slender Man movie, direct from YouTube:
You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Slender Man here, for the original intro to this movie.
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. Slender Man is directed by French-American filmmaker Sylvain White, director of Stomp the Yard, The Losers, and Miserere previously. The screenplay was written by David Birke. This is inspired by a fictional supernatural character that originated as a creepypasta internet meme created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen (also known as "Victor Surge") in 2009. Read more about the history on Wikipedia. Sony will release Slender Man in theaters everywhere starting August 10th this summer. Anyone still curious?
So, beyond angst, anxiety and depression there's some spooky death on the end of the road. Do not go and do not pass through trauma, stay in it. Good photography will help you to enjoy it. Some formula for a film, right?

I would have preferred another sequel to that Ethan Hawke boogeyman movie.

I'm somewhat disgusted this film is being released considering two teenage girls killed another due to "Slender Man". I guess a year is long enough to capitalize on tragedy. Also I miss the days of R-rated horror movies. I guess PG-13 can be scary enough?

No, they didn't kill the her. She miraculously (and thankfully) survived. I pretty much agree with what you're saying though. And yes PG-13 horror movies can definitely be scary enough, if paired with the right director.

Oh wow! I thought they killed her! Well, even better then. But I remember reading about it and thinking how messed up it was. And I'm curious, what's your favorite PG-13 horror offering?

Well, "off the top of my head"; 1408, A Quiet Place, Secret Window and Poltergeist (1982).

Still need to see A Quiet Place. It's right behind Shape of Water on things to watch. I agree with the others aside from Secret Window. It was creepy, but Idk if I'd classify it as horror. I'd throw in Exorcism of Emily Rose too. That movie was disturbing.
