Lurking in the shadows of the Internet, a faceless modern-day bogeyman has attracted the attention and fear of a young generation who whisper his name online. Slenderman lives on the dark pages of the web, where impressionable youth create and cultivate his mythos in message boards, YouTube clips and various other digital incantations. But the online fairy tale becomes a shocking real-life horror as two 12-year-old girls, guided by their devotion to Slenderman, lure their friend into the woods to attempt a seemingly inexplicable, brutal murder. From the depths of one the Internet's most unsettling creations to the court case that must consider the consequences, Beware the Slenderman brings to light questions of accountability in an age where young, growing minds are only a few clicks away from creating and consuming something that may influence them to commit unspeakable crimes. This premiered on HBO last night. Anyone else check it out? I've been following this story in the news as I find it really interesting. I watched this last night and it was down right fucking creepy at times. This documentary was excellent. I especially liked the fact they spent a good deal of time with the parents of the two girls who attempted to murder their best friend. The media wanted to paint these two little girls as monsters. The police interviews of these girls shortly after the stabbings, were truly unbelievable. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I highly suggest checking this out if you get a chance. Incredibly interesting stuff.
