Slender Man was created as part of an Internet challenge, and has quickly grown to become one of the scariest modern horror stories. HBO has a new documentary about Slender Man coming in January, but until the day arrives, check out this trailer.
I know a lot of people who get legitimately scared and freaked out about Slender Man, which makes this even more fascinating for me – especially when it goes too far, leading to the murder of a young girl. How does this happen? That’s what the documentary, Beware the Slender Man, hopes to explore.
“The narrative does not revolve around guilt or innocence,” Beware the Slenderman director Irene Taylor Brodsky said in a statement from HBO, “but instead the court’s deliberation whether the girls should be tried as adults or children.”
