SLENDER MAN - Official Trailer 2 (HD).
In a small town of Winsford, Massachusetts's high school, four best friends - Wren (Joey King), Hallie (Julia Goldani Telles), Chloe (Jaz Sinclair), and Katie (Annalise Basso) approach a group of guys to ask what they are doing that evening, but they tell the girls it's top secret. Wren picks Hallie up that night to go to Katie's house, along with Chloe. They hang out in her basement while her dad (Kevin Chapman) is passed out drunk. The girls then discuss that the guys are trying to summon the Slender Man (Javier Botet), a monster known through the internet that takes children. They find a video online to see how one can summon him. The girls close their eyes as they wait to hear the tolling of bells. A week later, the girls are on a field trip with their class to a cemetery when Katie suddenly becomes spooked by something in the trees. After a while, she disappears without a trace, and her whole class is left there for hours until the police show up to begin searching for her themselves. Hallie is in her room with her sister Lizzie (Taylor Richardson) when they hear a thumping sound coming from downstairs. They get frightened, and Hallie goes to check it out. It's Katie's dad, drunk and asking if Katie is with Hallie. He gets mad, accusing Hallie of getting Katie into some occult business, and he tries to attack Hallie. The police arrive, and Katie's dad is arrested, just as Hallie's parents are outside and her father is yelling at him. Hallie goes with Wren and Chloe to Katie's house to investigate. Wren distracts Katie's dad while the other two sneak in from the back. They go into Katie's room and take her laptop. After they leave, they look into the laptop and find videos of others that have encountered Slender Man. The girls read Katie's messages and see that she was talking to someone with the handle "AleeyCat93". Katie had been messaging her about how to deal with Slender Man. Hallie then talks to AleeyCat93 again to ask what they can do to get Katie back, and she responds that they must give up something they hold near and dear to them.
