Slenderman will haunt Joey King, Annalise Basso and more in 2018

Slenderman Beware the Slenderman movie Joey King horror

The SLENDER MAN has himself some victims.

Joey King (soon to be seen cursed by a wish-giving box in WISH UPON), Annalise Basso (who dealt with a haunted mirror in OCULUS), Talitha Bateman (who will fend off a demonic doll in ANNABELLE: ORIGIN) Julia Goldani-Telles (The Affair), Jaz Sinclair and Alex Fitzalan have all joined Sylvain White's SLENDER MAN, which has been given a May 18, 2018 release date by Screen Gems.

Written by David Birke and Mike Scannell, the pic centers on...

a tall, thin horrifying figure with preternaturally long arms and a featureless face. He is thought to be responsible for the haunting, stalking, and disappearance of countless victims.

The real Slender Man phenomenon is a fascinating one, especially when you consider some of the real-life crimes the cult figure has prompted; the most infamous one involved two young girls who brutally stabbed a classmate in order to impress the ghostly figure. That incident was covered in the documentary BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN.

Most likely, this SLENDER MAN movie will be a more traditional spookfest in which the phantom stalks and scares a bevy of innocent teens in a PG-13-friendly manner.
