‘Slender Man’ trailer is slim on slender men

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.
