Slender Man is a good movie but it's not very scary. It isn't a typical horror movie it's more a mystery thriller with a good urban legend story. If we take everything into consideration the scenes, sound effects, dark environment and a creepy story with real-life roots which always add more creepiness, it's a good horror movie. We recommend this movie, for a horror movie night in the dark, with a group of friends.
