Coming soon form HBO is Beware The Slenderman, a new documentary from Taylor Brodsky. From what we understand, Brodsky went to the families of the 12-year-old girls who almost killed their classmate, stabbing her twenty times, claiming that they were inspired by the strange and very frightening character known as the Slenderman. You can check out an eerie poster for the upcoming HBO documentary down below!
About Beware The Slenderman:
“The traumatizing story of the so-called Slenderman has been circulating around the internet for more than five years, terrorizing children, scaring even hardened Redditors and creating an overwhelming sense of unease in anyone who runs across the tales of the supernatural figure. Born out of a 2009 meme, the chilling individual has been the source of folk tales, video games, and now, documentaries.
Brodsky uses the (fictional) disturbing figure to explore not only the effect that Internet lore has on real-life actions, but also how the digital age is saturating the imagination and actions of children.”
Keep a look out for Beware The Slenderman when it premiers at SXSW on March 11th, then followed by HBO. Dark Universe recommend that you check it out if you love fictional tales of horror.
