The next look at the Slender Man film is here, and yeah, it looks pretty frightening.

Based on the internet-created boogeyman-like figure with a blank face and black suit, Slender Man takes the creepy urban myth and turns it into a supernatural horror film villain.

Set in a small town in Massachusetts, the film sees a group of friends perform a summoning ritual in an attempt to debunk Slender Man lore. One of them goes missing, so the group begins to suspect she might be a victim of the dreaded Slender Man itself.

Although the ominous online horror meme originated in a 2009 forum post/PhotoShop contest, Slender Man was also allegedly the motive for a 2014 attack by two 12-year-old girls who stabbed their friend. 

So, this film is not going to be light, especially as one of the last scenes in the trailer is reminiscent of one of the most horrifying scenes in The Evil Dead.

Slender Man hits cinemas on 10 August.
