Watch Here: Slender Man' Movie Gets Terrifying First Official Trailer

Slender Man

The father of a girl who violently attacked a classmate after being inspired by the fictional character Slender Man has criticized a new horror film of the same name as being "extremely distasteful".

And, well, despite being almost five years late to all of the Slender Man craze, Sony Pictures is looking to capitalize on the legendary meme as well with director Sylvain White's chilling new horror film simply titled Slender Man.

Weier's father, Bill Weier, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that making the movie is in "extreme poor taste" given the Wisconsin incident.

In Ukraine, he faces investigation on charges of "aiding members of criminal groups and covering up their criminal activity". He was officially charged in Georgia in 2014, however, by the time his case went through court he was already in Ukraine.

Two girls from Waukesha, Anissa Weir and Morgan Geyser, said the fictional character was behind their May 2014 attack of classmate Payton Leutner. Sheriff's deputies said she started the fire after reading an e-book called "Soul Eater" and reading about Slender Man. Stories depicted a tall, unnaturally thin man with no face stalking and abducting people, particularly children.

The victim recovered from her injuries and the attackers received varying sentences in mental health facilities. She claimed that the attack was to please Slender Man, a character created in 2009 by Eric Knudsen as part of a Photoshop contest.

The creepy, supernatural ghoul who originated as a creepypasta meme now has his own movie.
