Help with regex / slugify function task.

Not sure why this isn't passing this task. Any help is much appreciated!

slug.py
import os
import unicodedata

def slugify(string, path): 
    string = unicodedata.normalize('NFKC', string)
    string = re.sub(r'[\s\]', '', string).strip().lower()

    if not re.match(r'[^\w\d\_]', string):
        string = "_" + string

    try: 
        os.makedirs(os.path.join(path, string))
    except FileExistsError: 
        pass
