Four high school girls perform a ceremony to summon internet boogeyman Slenderman. Once they see him, they can't get rid of him. And one by one, the girls are driven mad, die, or disappear.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Slender Man might be thin, but he's positively robust compared to the flimsy assortment of scares generated by the would-be chiller that bears his name.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Slender Man is a horror movie based on a popular internet meme (a "creepypasta") about a faceless monster that steals kids. It has unsettling, nightmare-like imagery that flashes by quickly, as well as jump scares, teens in peril, and teen girls being grabbed and choked. Black claws also burst out of a teen girl's swollen belly, and there are suicide attempts. A fast-paced, strobe-like sequence could be difficult for those with photosensitivity and has prompted some theaters to post warnings. Language includes uses of "s--t" and "damn" and one use of "f--k." Teens kiss briefly on a couch but are interrupted. There's a suggestion of teens watching porn and a mention of teen pregnancy. A secondary adult character is shown to be an alcoholic, falling asleep on the couch with an empty bottle nearby. While die-hard teen horror hounds may be interested, ultimately the movie is dull and filled with creaky scary-movie devices/clichés. Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Jaz Sinclair, and Annalise Basso star.
