The movie will not play in two counties out of respect for a girl who was almost killed by two teenagers.
The chilling incident, which occurred in 2014, saw Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, both 12, lure one of their classmates out to a woodland park in Wisconsin before attempting to take her life.

The senseless attack was reportedly 'dedicated' to Slender Man - a fictitious entity invented on an Internet forum who typically appears as a very tall, thin individual with a black suit and no face.

The character has been the subject of numerous creepypasta stories over the last few years.

Now with the release of a new movie based on the Slender Man phenomenon, it has been reported that the film will not screen in Milwaukee or Waukesha counties out of respect for the victim.

"Like many people across the United States, Marcus Theaters was deeply concerned and saddened when the Slender Man phenomenon touched Southeastern Wisconsin in such a profound way, changing the lives of many families forever," the movie theater chain said in a statement.

"After careful consideration, and out of respect for those who were impacted, we have decided not to play the upcoming Slender Man movie in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties."

"We will show the film at select other Marcus Theatres locations."
