The first trailer for the horror film Slender Man has arrived. The trailer does well to create a sinister tone without giving too much away regarding the plot.

Slender Man has haunted the internet ever since he was created by forum user Eric Knudsen back in 2009. Since then he has appeared in online literature, art, a web series and had his own video games, Slender: The Eight Pages and Slender: The Arrival.
