Creepy story of Slender Man
Slenderman appeared in 2009, authored by Eric Knudsen, who created this amazing character for the competition on the Something Awful website. Thus, this man created Slender Man for the Create Paranormal Images thread which was calling participants to photoshop existing photographs. Slender Man is a tall, spooky, and spider-like figure that Eric “photographed” surrounded by children who just have fun in their playing nearby.
The photos of this author came on the 4chan portal and soon began to spread throughout the Internet as a virus. Slender Man itself began appearing in videos, photos, and even video games. So, there are rumours about a character in Minecraft who was developed on its basis. Slender Man became a legend in the world of Internet memes and stories. After that, he turned into a huge scarecrow that inspires fear in all the people who saw it, although before, it was just a unique character of a talented guy.
How Slender Man became a true murderer
Once upon a time, an amazing and terrible story happened to a girl from Wisconsin in the United States. Thus, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier were charged with stabbing an age mate named Peyton Leitner. The reason for this terrible act was their belief that the sacrifice of this little girl would be a “great” occasion for the joy of the great Slender Man, who would save the families of these criminals from the further threats from Peyton.
When these kids committed their crimes, they were only 12 years old. They said they read about Slender Man’s character on the Creepy Pasta website and were inspired by its horrible story. Eric Knudsen was very upset and said that the tragedy suffered by the family of Peyton Leitner was a great disappointment for him. He sympathised with the parents of the deceased girl, but he did not take responsibility for the crime of those violent children, as he was not responsible for it.
Rumours and disputes about The True Story of Slender Man film
