Ok, I’m going to say something that may blow many a mind away, especially if you are a modern horror fan. Ready? I don’t get the fear around the Slenderman. A lot of the fan art is cool and the infamous court case surrounding that murder was indeed terrifying but I never really saw the appeal. That being said, I can’t ignore he has become a pop culture icon and now he’s got a movie. Ugh. After seeing the trailer I groaned. It reminded me of a typical horror trailer with pretty standard horror themes. I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt but see for yourself. May the gaming gods bring you glory and best wishes.
