My Thoughts

I give the Slender Man Blu-ray a B.

A group of four friends curious about the legend of  Slender Man decides to summon him to see what the hype is all about.  When one of their friends goes missing, the three remaining friends realize that he is real and must find a way to save their friend and themselves.

I did enjoy watching this film.  It’s not the greatest horror film in the world but it was fun to watch. I liked how things stood still where the characters noticed every sound when Slender Man was near.  I liked the nightmares that one of the characters had.  It was visually stunning and terrifying at the same time.  They made no sense. But caught your attention as it played out on the screen.  I even liked Slender Man. He had no face. He was mysterious.  That’s what made him scary because we didn’t know anything about him besides what the “urban legends” would say.

Catch Slender Man out on Blu-ray & Digital October 30th!
