Slender Man – the internet meme that totally creeped us all out – is coming to movie screens, and if the trailer is anything to go by they’ve nailed the creepiness.

The setup goes something like this: In a small Massachusetts town, four not-too-bright (OK, we added that bit) high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of Slender Man. But when one of them goes missing, they begin to suspect that she’s his latest victim.

Directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, The Losers), the trailer does the right thing by not focusing on the titular character, instead going for the effects that he has on those around him.

Slender Man is coming to Aussie cinemas later in 2018. You’ve been warned!
