'Extremely distasteful': Father of Slender Man attacker slams horror film

12-internet-meme-stabbers Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser both 12 were charged as adults with attempted murder

In the vain of turning anything remotely popular on the internet into a film property, Sony Pictures has been hard at work (we hope) on a Slender Man movie, and the first trailer has been released.

In 2014, Weier's daughter Anissa and friend Morgan Geyser took their classmate Payton Leutner into a wooded area of a Wisconsin suburb, where the pair stabbed her 19 times.

"Slender Man" is scheduled to hit theaters on May 18. Weier's daughter, now 16, was sentenced to 25 years in a mental institution last month, the maximum punishment possible.

In a small town in MA, four high school girls perform a ritual in an attempt to debunk the lore of SLENDER MAN. It is directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard) and stars Joey King as Wren, Julia Goldani Telles as Hallie, Jaz Sinclair as Chloe and Javier Botet as Slender Man. He is a supernatural figure, depicted as an unnaturally tall and gaunt man with a blank face, who abducts children and causes paranoia and delusions.

A psychologist for Milwaukee Public Schools, Margaret Altschaefl, said every local family should have a discussion about the film and ask questions about it.

Make a film about a subject with any kind of controversy surrounding it and this is what you're going to get-a bunch of pissed-off folks, and a petition for them to rally behind. "That it is a film, that it's not real?" she said.

Sony Pictures media relations officials didn't reply to two emails left in the company's general inbox for reporter's inquiries.
