Sony Pictures has shared the first official trailer for their upcoming live-action movie based on the Slender Man creepypasta.

Titled simply Slender Man, the new horror movie is set in a small Massachusetts town and follows a high school girl who — you guessed it, goes missing after trying to deduce whether or not the Slender Man myth is real.

Slender Man is premiering on May 18th of this year.
