Creeping into our nightmares about five years too late, the trailer for Slender Man has arrived—even if its titular character hasn’t so much. This first preview scarcely gives a glimpse of any faceless men fresh from the big & tall section of Men’s Wearhouse; instead, it leans into some arbitrarily horrific imagery (night vision footage of a needle going into an eye?) and the suggestion that something has made one girl disappear and another stab herself in the face. Only a single silhouetted shot suggested the involvement of a terribly svelte fella. Perhaps we’ll get a better look at the waifish perp when Slender Man hits theaters May 18.
