"He gets in your head like a virus..." With Slender Man now slated to haunt US theaters on August 10th from Screen Gems, a new trailer has been released for the horror film, giving horror fans a deeper look at how the titular character can infect your mind... and make you lose it.

Directed by Sylvain White from a screenplay by David Birke (based on the character created by Victor Surge), Slender Man stars Joey King, Julia Goldani-Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso, and Javier Botet as Slenderman. One of the most talented performance artists working today, Botet also recently played the Neibolt House hobo in the new IT movie as well as "KeyFace" in Insidious: The Last Key.

Synopsis: "In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. When one of the girls goes mysteriously missing, they begin to suspect that she is, in fact, HIS latest victim."
