So, I was browsing the internet when I came across this. Do you think they'll fuck it up? I personally don't know what to think.
How does this make you feel?

The link to the official site is here.

Slenderman has grown far more popular than he should have. On top of that is that there's not really any solid canon to the story beyond that he chills in the woods and kills kids.

Anything that becomes slightly hype becomes too popular and then becomes merchandised thanks to the dumb asses on the internet. Just look at memes, the old man from the bus fight video, Angry Birds and Nyan Cat. This was only a matter of time and while I am curious about the movie I also hang my head in shame because due to internet goers, nothing is sacred or keeps any real value anymore.

Everything that's good gets done to death.

It was cool when it was just on Something Awful, but then it just spiraled out of control. The only good thing that came out of his popularity was Slender. That is, until that got too popular.

Why does it seem in only the course of a few months, his popularity has skyrocketed?

My theory is that when people saw the Slender vidya, the Facebook and Reddit communities pissed themselves like over-excited dogs and told everyone they knew about it.

I don't understand that "things are only good when only a few people knew about it". That is entirely subjected to bias and is rarely true, for instance, Slenderman was just a story on Something Awful, not even a very a good one, just a generic, scary character that doesn't even have any really unique characteristics. Furthermore, the appeal of Slender (game) is as basic as any other horror game, pop up scares in a scary environment.

And the movie will unlikely be any better than any other generic C/B rated movie out there, it was never "unique" it has been generic through and through and never been good or truly scary.

I can tell you the plot line right now, "Teens go out to woods for vacation/party/other, they spend the night and find things that link them to Slenderman. Generic party girl feels like she's being watched, they move on with their whatever they're doing and then they start to hear things and others thing they see something, Generic boy says he/she is crazy and then they get taken after being separated from their group." And it follows on like that until one or two of them escape the woods, their lives changed forever by Slenderman.

Welcome to Generic 101, institutionalized by Hollywood/Media since the dawn of B rated movies.

Slender is a great game. I just love playing video games where nothing happens and you can't see anything.

No, but there's plenty of fanon to incorporate.

I just hope they don't make the generic horror-movie soundtrack with jump scare chords and random entry-level metal.

Thanks to people like Marble Hornets and TribeTwelve, Slendys popularity is growing rapidly.

He's a cool character, I wish they made a real Slenderman movie out of him..not some knock off.

But it's slenderman dude.A creature made up in the mind of a guy who wanted to take part in photoshop content.A terrifying monster which is very tall and has no face.The idea of slenderman is so cool that it became the main concept for successful and great games.I believe the writers of the movie are going to throw away the cliche script of a group of teenagers camping in the wood and try something original like a group of teenagers in the wood BUT in a abandoned house.Definitely gonna watch that movie.I'm so excited.

Huh, they made/making a movie about Slenderman? It might as well be a complete rip-off of Friday the 13th except they replace Jason with Slenderman. Or it could be a lame play-through video of the game "Slender" by Parsec Productions.

Whatever this is going to turn out, I'd rather not know about it. Hollywood is seriously running out of good ideas.

Doom with Dwayne Johnson basically proved films based off of video games can't be good, so I'm going to skip this right away. Same goes for the Metal Gear Solid film. Although Slender Man the movie does sound interesting....

Ugh, next thing we know, Mothman is gonna get a game (Hell, maybe it'll be about collapsing bridges)

Slenderman has been done to death, please, let's just leave it be and do something else to death (like kittens, those are still popular on the internet right?)

So far the website hasn't exactly filled me with confidences. It says the release date is August 2012 but there's still a 52 day countdown as well? Also it links the official trailer to a private embedded Vimeo link, hmmm.
