    Slender man is the most boring idea for a movie. For the most part the scary/creepiness of slender man entirely based upon the idea that he just shows up places and no one really knows what he is or what he does. Though there are stories about proxies or whatever where slender man supposedly turns some of the people he takes into “proxies”, which I guess means like he controls them or they are crazy and work for him or something.

    Normally enjoy your reviews but this review really is aimless and boring. I guess it is just like the movie.

    Why was The Mummy featured alongside all the bad Sony films? Yes it was bad, but it was made by Universal so what is the point of showing it in that joke and not any other bad movies from other studios? Did yo guys think a Universal Monster movie was made by Sony?

    It’s creepy when someone talks about someone else getting stabbed, and then you get these tingling sensations around your body like someone is stabbing you.
    I hate that feeling.

    Edit: It's Terror In The Woods(2018), it's fucking terrible in the right way.
    So I saw something on TV a while ago I could've sworn was this movie, not that I've watched it. The girls were closer to the actual age of the perpetrators and the acting was honestly spot-on as far as a couple of retarded little girls trying to kill their friend. In a painful way. I wish I'd looked at the title, because it'd be worth watching you guys suffer through.

    "we definitely don't want to take any credit for this movie"
    Oh c'mon nobody could ever believe that the creatively brilliant minds behind "Space Cop" the film that defined an entire generation could ever produce garbage like "Slender Man"

    COBALT-Co 14 days ago

    The entire movie is just a huge insult on every level. It's honestly impressive. There's the real-life angle, the fact that it's a cash grab that is so pathetic even the makers are ashamed of, and that it completely turns off the people they needed to appeal to- the marble hornet fans.

    A good example of writing an elusive monster/horror with established rules would be Junji Ito's works. Some specific ones being Army of One, Uzumaki, and Splatterfilm. All three stories have "monsters" that aren't fully explained nor elaborated upon, but they still have defined rules that make the stories more suspenseful and interesting. Hell, the Slenderman mythos would probably work really well in an Uzumaki-type story! Rules don't kill the horror! Rules MAKE the horror!!

    You what creepypasta(s) would make for a _good_ movie? SCP.
    Just make a movie out of the Containment Breach game - you've got a bunch of monsters with well-established rules in the game already, and more than 4,000 other ones to pick from the wiki to make a good story.
    With the taskforce as a fightable enemy and SCPs as an unfightable enemy, you can have both action and horror scenes while maintaining a consistent tone - you know, the kinds of movies that're pretty much guaranteed to do well, at the moment.
    Or, make anthology movies with a few individual SCPs - could follow researchers, agents, taskforce members, civilians, conspiracy theorists. There's so much you can do with the material available.
    Hell, you could throw in a comedy section of experiments done with SCP-914.
    Can we get an SCP cinematic universe? It's more sensible than the Dark Universe.

    A Slenderman movie could work as a found footage movie, in the same vein as Blair Witch, where you don't see or learn much about the Witch, you just experience the encounter.
    Heck, just put Slendy in the background of a few shots of Blair Witch and remove the interviews at the start and you *have* a Slenderman movie.

    I was actually really looking forward to this film cause the trailer looked cool and I'm a fan of creepypasta games and such. But after seeing all the backlash it got for being shit and you guys pretty much saying its not even really a movie now that they cut out all the good stuff I will still watch this but that won't be any time soon

    grashoppers... are GREEN, brah? I dunno, I'm 37, you're two even older fucks. If you don't understand what teenagers are saying, it might just be written well? Also reasons why there's none of 25:00 stuff is because this movie is trying to create the threat that comes from the INTERNET. It's not doing that WELL, but that's what it's trying to do.

    "The Slindamin!" Very good. Oh, and go see Hellfest. I know! I knooow! I know what yer thinking. "Another uncreative slasher that's 30 years too late?" Well, you're not wrong about the uncreative part, but it's constantly ahead of the audience, finely directed with terror, tension, because it understands what it is. Solid horror

    "Two girls got so fucked up by the internet that they tried to murder their friend."
    Two fucked up girls tried to murder their friend and then blamed something they read on the internet.
    Some of the kids I went to school with grew up to be horrible violent people. In grade school they all watched the Friday the 13th series, the Nightmare on Elm Street series, and the Child's Play series.
    Did they get so fucked up by the VCR and blockbuster rentals?
    Why do you think creepypasta is more dangerous to the psyche of children than slasher movies? Why did some people in your parents generation consider slasher movies to be more dangerous to the psyche of children than scary campfire stories?

    Urban legend is the perfect way to describe Slenderman. Even the people who know it's just a made up internet thing, generally talk about it as if it's the Jersey Devil, or something. Like it's some kind of legit folklore.

  • Chaos Shadow
    Chaos Shadow 4 months ago

    In fairness to the premise, one of the earliest Slenderman series (Marble Hornets) actually establishes that Slenderman is a mental virus whose presence causes progressively more psychotic behavior in his victims as he seeps further into their psyche. I think the idea of that happening in the movie was less based on the real life incident and more based on this origin (which itself seeps into a lot of other Slenderman mythos).
    That said they really should have studied Marble Hornets to learn (1) how to properly set up Slenderman as a background stalker (in Marble Hornets, he's so subtly interjected into the background of most of his appearances that it causes a constant feeling of paranoia in the audience, granting an unusual but powerful tension even in scenes where it's just two people arguing about their student film), and (2) that once you move away from Slenderman-as-supernatural-stalker and into memetic mind-virus that directly drives people crazy it gets *really fucking stupid*.

    MarbleHornets did slenderman way better and that was some passion project early-TheXvid thing. Slenderman mythology just cant work for a movie, or a franchise. It's a basic horror concept, as these guys said like Nightmare on Elm Street, or hell even Silent Hill, but there's nothing more to it. That's what happens when your source material is a single-page creepypasta from the internet

      SCP has potential for a cinematic adaptation. It has oodles of potential. It has more potential than a Slender Man movie in 2018, I'll tell you that (almost all the potential was harnessed into EverymanHybrid, Marble Hornets, etc., years ago).
