Slender Man: The Movie

Recommended Posts

Two things. First, horror movies aren't really my thing.

Second, I can't bring myself to support a project run by a guy who doesn't know the difference between roll and role. Just sayin'.

I never said you had to support it, just check it out.

I like Kickstarter. I have supported several things. I was merely stating my opinion on the project and never assumed you insisted I support it, 'cause that would be silly.

YOU'RE NOT MY DAD!

I'm your Dad, Inzema.

Huh. I've always seen Slenderman as like...Comedic. And more widespread than attacking one person. Like, too random and chaotic to just hang out around one dude.

Anyways, looks cool. I'll spread the word. At the worst, it'll be a fun popcorn 'n' jokes type of movie.

The way Slenderman and its mythos works means this movie will either fail horribly or drastically alter the mythos.

Slenderman and stories around him/it work best when they're in snippets, like the 3 main Slenderman web series that have been going on for years (MarbleHornets, EverymanHYBRID, and TribeTwelve -- throw DarkHarvest00 in there too, its also a good one), where the story is spread out over a LONG, and I mean REAL long, time. Over years. You can't establish Slenderman and explain his entire story in 2 hours and resolve a conflict around him/ect. And that's essentially what the movie is going to have to be otherwise it would make zero sense. The horror that comes with Slenderman is the unknown, not jump scares or other horror-genre effects.

Nobody knows what Slenderman is. Nobody knows what Slenderman wants. Nobody knows the extent of Slenderman's abilities. And nobody knows how to stop him. That's the horror behind Slenderman, and frankly I think a movie would just utterly ruin it.

I'm glad to see there is such little interest in the kickstarter. After Slender the game happened, I began to lose hope once I saw fucking idiots like PewDiePie and Shane Dawson on Youtube trying to capitalize on it, effectively bringing in their dumb audiences onto what is still, albeit weakening, an awesome fanbase. And no, its not about being a hipster or not wanting other people to enjoy it. In fact, I have shown pretty much everyone I know those web series I talked about earlier. My issue is that Slender the game made the people I've mentioned above try to regulate Slenderman and its mythos into something that its not.

Anyway, in my honest opinion I don’t think this movie will work out unless they get a totally awesome writer and director and even then it might be either a 2 hour jump scare fest if they follow the popular game (Which is most likely the case) or a 2 hour suspense sort of thing. I find it hard to make a movie about Slender Man without bending its myth. Lets just pray that it won’t follow those odd fan-fics that include some sort of love interest with Slender.

THOSE EXIST!?!?!?!?!?!?! OH GOD, NO.

Mind-bleaching moments aside, I'm pretty on the fence about this movie being made. I mean, I never knew what was so scary about Slenderman until I saw the game (which freaks me out from the atmosphere alone). For me, the fear of him was the fact that he even spawned in the game, not the jump scares it throws at you.

Just saying, if this is going to work, it would have to be a very atmosphere heavy movie.

I would pay good money for some hardcore Slenderman/men porn, to be honest. I mean, no plot, just two and a half hours of extreme tentacle goodness.

And make that the entire mythos. Just to see what Necro does.

What a cute picture. I echo your sentiments and suggest Altherion move to Japan so his desire for tentacle porn can be forever fulfilled.

Also Einhelras I doubt they actually wanted a literal explanation of how dumb slenderman is to begin with ;p.

Rush Limbaugh thought the goons were CIA operatives in EVE online.

There is no way to gauge the depths of this rabbit hole anymore.

What if Slender Man does exist? What if the SA forums thing was part of the coverup?

What if Raziel is part of the coverup for the horrific Demon the Government has summoned?

I think we all have reason to fear. This kickstarter is clearly an underground revolution against the horrors of tyranny.

Lol jk tentacle porn kthnx, and yeah, I know people legit afraid that it's real. I don't bother telling them otherwise, it's funny to see them all scaredey.
