So I’ve been reading a lot of creepy stories lately, mostly from reddit (r/truecreepy, r/creepypasta r/nosleep etc) and creepypasta.com. I have come across this recurring story about The Slender Man.
He is depicted as tall, slim and sans facial expressions. Also, he is commonly wearing a suit. Sightings have been made for centuries and there is an entire wikipedia page dedicated to this “monster.” This page makes him seem so real. There are tons of sightings and explanations for this existence.
My question to the hive, have you all heard of this guy? Have you had any experience with this man?
I know I sound like a crazy person!

lol, Slender Man was made up by someone on some humor forum a few years ago – no worries 🙂
But it is a really fun creepypasta! I love the game, usually play it around Halloween every year.

Know Your Meme has a great article on the Slender Man legend origins. It was created by a Something Awful forum member for a photoshop contest in 2009 🙂

Weird…never heard of this guy. Although I believe in paranormal stuff in general, these pics look like camera tricks (whether on purpose or by accident).

OH yeah. My Brother-In-Law is seriously scared of this creature. Like legit scared. I just laugh.

The game is a real popular hit amongst horror/scary game fans.

I have! It is soo creepy! I actually saw someone dress as him for Halloween in one of those flesh-colored stretchy faceless costumes (I think they’re called Morphsuits) with a suit and snuck into the background of peoples photos. Creepy!
