Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for the Slender Man movie.

Directed by Sylvain White (Stomp The Yard, The Losers), the movie is based on the titular internet meme and takes place in a small Massachusetts town where four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the Slender Man myth. But when one of the girls goes missing, they begin to suspect Slender Man might just in fact be real.

This new trailer doesn't seem to gather as much enthusiasm as the first one, plus it gives off more Evil Dead and Exorcist vibes. The girls are seen going to the internet to find out what happened to their friend, see a link on a reddit-like page that says “Summon Him”, and just go for it. However, visually, you might get some kicks.

"There’s also the issue of sensitivity, as this film fictionalizes an encounter with Slender Man, but in real life two 12-year-old girls lured their friend into the woods and tried to stab her to death, claiming afterwards that Slender Man told them to do it. It’s a sad and troubling situation, and puts a bit of a damper on this whole ordeal." (Collider)

Slender Man came to life in a forum in 2009 by user Eric Knudsen who edited a real-life image of a man for a Photoshop contest held by the website, Something Awful. From there, the horror legend grew.

The movie stars Joey King, Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso, and Javier Botet.

Originally set to debut theatrically back in May, Slender Man has since seen its release date shifted away to late August before, most recently, it was bumped up to two weeks earlier (taking fellow Sony release Searching's previous date).

Slender Man opens in theaters on August 10th. The movie arrives a year after the celebrated HBO documentary, Beware of the Slenderman.

Check out the new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

In a small town in Massachusetts, a group of friends perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. When one of them goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim.
