America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given anyone who does.
The Slender Man first appeared on the "Something Awful" forums in a series of photographs edited to depict a tall, humanoid entity unnoticed by other people in the image but almost always surrounded by, or in close proximity to, children. Since then, many have speculated inspiration and origin of Slender Man in popular media, folk tales and ghost stories from hundreds of years ago, the earliest being a reference to Der Großmann in a German folk story written in 1702.

I consider myself to have fairly discerning taste, so I'm disappointed to see such panning of a fairly decent horror film. It pays excellent homage to the creepypasta lore, is well shot, edited, acted, and manages to be "creepy" at its (unfortunately) PG13 rating. Don't fall for the reverse Emperor's New Clothes Syndrome: If you're interested in seeing the film, then I suggest you give it a try despite the abhorrent reviews.
