The Appearance of the Slenderman
The Slenderman whom today children are afraid of is the “rebranding” of German, Russian and Romanian folklore: a collective image, recreated in 2009 by the participants of the “Something Awful” forum. Then forum users were invited to create a monster that could claim the title of a new urban legend. The winner was the user under the pseudonym Victor Surge: he processed two black-and-white photographs with children in the graphics editor, adding in the photos the Slenderman.
In the photo commentary, Surge attributed to his creation the ability to telepathy, noting that the photographs were taken by photographers who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Surge continued to surround his hero with legends, having fabricated several police reports and children’s drawings depicting the Slenderman. Slenderman quickly left the limits of the “Something Awful” forum, starting to conquer the Internet.
The official movie Slender Man trailer is not available. It will come closer to the release of the movie.
It is believed that the Slenderman is very thin and able to stretch the already long limbs to almost any size. When Slender stretches out his hands to the victim, it falls into a trance state but experiences a certain attraction to Slender. He, in turn, turns his hands into tentacles, wraps them around the victim and either disappears with it or gutted by hanging the body on a branch of a dry tree. At “Something Awful” Surge wrote that the Slenderman has a brother-antagonist Splendor: a merry fellow of the same appearance but in a colored suit, which helps those who have lost to find the way out of the forest.
Even at the stage of creating a monster on “Something Awful” led discussions about where the image of the Thin Man originated. Someone pointed to a certain resemblance to the character of German fairy tales by the High Man (Der Großmann) — a faceless scarecrow, which the hooligans afraid of. Someone recalled the Romanian fairy tale about Stella and Sorin — two girls who once saw a multi-armed man dressed in all black whose limbs were long and boneless, wriggling like snakes.
Analogs of Slenderman are also found in Japanese tales: The Faceless, whom Chihiro met with in “Spirited Away” by Miyazaki. The director copied the image of a person without a face from Noperapon — the Japanese spirit stealing other people’s faces. Instead of a face, the Noperapon has smooth like an egg, snow-white skin. The creature lives on roadsides and in forest thickets, hiding away from the villages.
In 1994, The New Yorker magazine published Stephen King’s story “Man in Black Suit” — a fictional story about how in 1914 the old man met the devil in the forest near the Castle Rock town.
Surge, in turn, claimed that Slenderman was a character he created, and the prototype for visualization was the film “Fantasy” by American director Don Coscarelli. Anyway, the Thin man’s meme turned into the plot of the web series “Marble Hornets”, and later it formed the basis of the indie horror project “Slender: The Eight Pages”, a super-popular and very terrible horror movie, numerous downloads made the creator very famous.
The creators do not disclose the information on who will play in the film.
Slender Man 2018 movie release date is scheduled for May 18, 2018, in the USA.
