It’s premiere season and so far the line up for SXSW is booming. One of the films premiering at SXSW is Irene Taylor Brodsky’s Beware the Slenderman, inspired by the popular legend. In the film, two twelve-year-old girls find an online Boogeyman and vow to kill for him. “The entrance to the internet quickly leads to its darkest basement. How responsible are our children for what they find there?”
Very little else is known about the film at this time. The image below has surfaced and is reportedly connected to the film.
Most of you will recognize the legend of The Slender Man. He is unnaturally tall and slender. The pale-man also has a featureless face. Slender Man is often described as having the power to manipulate people into killing for him. Real murders have been carried out in his name, but he was actually created online in 2009 on the “Something Awful” forum.
