THE SLENDER MAN LEGEND
If scary stories are too much for you then you might not want to read any further.
Have you seen the horror movie called Slender Man?
Rated PG-13, it’s about a group of friends in a small town who are fascinated by the internet lore of Slender Man. They attempt to prove that he doesn’t exist…until one of them mysteriously goes missing.
That’s all I will say, I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it.
Check out the trailer below.
If you’re not familiar with Slender Man, he has been an urban legend since 2009 and was supposedly created in an internet forum in a thread for a contest where users were challenged to create paranormal images.
Slender Man is a thin and extremely tall humanoid-like figure who wears a black suit. This supernatural being has a faceless head and tentacle-like arms.
He is known to stalk, traumatize, and abduct people, especially children.
The legend of Slender Man seems to resonate mostly with teens and there have been incidents where they have allegedly tried to please him:
• Two pre-teen girls allegedly stabbed their classmate
• A teenage girl allegedly set her family home on fire
• Another teenage girl allegedly attacked her mom
• An epidemic of teen suicide attempts on a Native American reservation
Slender Man has influenced everything from Halloween costumes, video games, documentaries, and now this recent movie. His popularity continues to grow.
So, is he just an image created in an internet forum or is he something supernatural?
Hmm…What do you think?
