Slender Man was a complete mess because Sony was afraid of offending people

August 17, 2018 1 min read

In case you didn't notice, Slender Mancame out last week and was an unmitigated disaster. It wasn't scary at all and it was frankly just a slog to get through. Nothing worked in it, and if you're at all curious to see it and see how bad it is, I implore you not to. Anything is better than seeing Slender Man. Hell, I'll recommend seeing Teen Titans Go! To the Moviesbefore seeing Slender Man in any capacity. But you wanna know what the kicker is? Sony knew it was releasing a half-baked product into theatres. 

I pointed out in my initial review that the trailers for Slender Manoriginally contained content that never made it into to the final film. Not just inconsequential content, but the deaths of nearly every major character was completely removed from the movie. Why? Fear. Sony was afraid of the backlash that those deaths would have.
