With the release of its trailer this week, Slender Man, the film based on the internet-story-turned-viral-sensation is facing criticism from an individual who was personally affected by the character’s real-life ramifications.

Bill Weier, father of one of two Wisconsin girls who attacked their classmate in service of the story’s monster, has slammed the film's studio, Sony Pictures, for supposedly "popularizing a tragedy.”
