Critic Consensus: Slender Man might be thin, but he's positively robust compared to the flimsy assortment of scares generated by the would-be chiller that bears his name.

All Critics (71) | Top Critics (11)

The problem with Slender Man is that it's simply not a good movie... There was a chance here to make a truly frightening film about a popular urban legend, but it comes too late and marked by too much tragedy for it to work.

These competent actresses deserve actual characters to play, but Birke's screenplay is as devoid of personality as the faceless cipher stalking its heroes.

It doesn't add up to much more than a shoulder shrug. Perhaps that's one way to kill off Slender Man: make his story so dull that no one cares.

Sporadically, one can see the movie that Slender Man could have been, but it disappears like the title character's victims.

Slender Man feels as used up as any years-old meme, like trying to explain what's funny about dat boi a decade late.

It turns its boogeyman into a generic figure of menace who doesn't feel ready for his moment in the horror movie spotlight.

Audience Reviews for Slender Man


Okay. Who cut the scene where our "heroes" seek out Vincent D'Onofrio and listen to him give an exposition dump? I ask because that's literally the only "Horror Movie 101" trope this doesn't ape.
