Slenderman movie to be released - UglyNRude - 01-03-2018

A made up character that influenced two young girls to stab another because they wanted to please him. Should this really be made into a movie?

This just irks me. First the story itself and now the glamorization by turning it into a movie plot line. Well, anything for a quick buck i guess.

Yes, it is all about commercialization and exploitation. However, my guess is that the movie will have very little resemblance if any to the real story.

That's true, where would all the jumpscares be in that?  Icontexto-emoticons-01-032x032

If the movie had come out years ago it could have been scary but everyone knows the story now.

Except for me. I had never heard of it.

Maybe I know about it because I have teenaged kids who know all the creepy pastas. 

I do hope they avoid anything remotely similar to the actual case where the girls tried to kill another girl.

I kinda hope it destroys the whole cult thing but I also hope it's a good horror movie. We've been having such a crap decade of horror flicks that are funnier than scarier.
