Searching for Slenderman

Cat Vincent takes a look at the origins, evolution and implications of this most modern of monsters: the Slenderman

he Slenderman: born barely five years ago in an online Photoshop competition, this faceless creature's mythology rapidly spread across the internet, inspiring video series, Alternate Reality Games, stories... and nightmares.

Earlier this year, its influence may have led to the attempted murder of a child by other children. A creature of pure fiction, drawing blood.

Cat Vincent takes a look at the origins, evolution and implications of this most modern of monsters. Cat is currently a regular columnist at Spiral Nature (a series called ‘The Hype’) contributing editor to The Daily Grail, and have been published in two volumes of their Fortean journal Darklore.
