Plot Edit

In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of Slender Man. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim.

Similarities to other Slender Man media Edit

  • In the trailer, the sound of an ominous bell plays several times throughout. This is very similar, if not coincidental, to the sound of drums playing in the distance in both Slender and Slender: The Arrival.
  • One of the shots shows a woman looking at a room full of drawings of Slender Man, another shot shows a little girl writing "HIM". These exact tropes were exhibited by the Slender: The Arrival character, Kate, in addition to Marble Hornets character, Alex Kralie.
