Slender Man is one of the upcoming horror movies of 2018. The Slender Man is a tall, thin, horrific figure with preternaturally long arms and a featureless face. He is thought to be responsible for the haunting, stalking, and disappearance of countless victims. In the movie, Slender Man supernaturally and psychologically haunts some teenage girls after a friend of theirs goes missing.
Terror strikes when four teenage girls in a small town perform a ritual to debunk the lore of a tall, thin, horrifying figure known as the Slender Man. They soon fear that the legend is true when one of them suddenly goes missing.
