The Slender Man is an unnaturally tall, skinny figure who’s often depicted without a face. Sometimes he’s pictured with extra limbs or tendrils coming out of his body. He lurks in wooded areas, and lures, stalks, abducts or traumatizing children, particularly so he can kill and eat them. People often feel that they can see Slender Man, but when they turn around, he’s gone.
Though Slender Man's appearance, motives, habits, and abilities are not fixed but change depending on the sightings.
Most recount his face as being white and featureless, but occasionally his face appears differently to anyone who sees the man. He appears as wearing a dark suit and tie. The Slender Man is often associated with the forest and/or abandoned locations and has the ability to teleport. Proximity to the Slender Man is often said to trigger a Slender sickness a rapid onset of paranoia, nightmares and delusions accompanied by nosebleeds.
Early sightings featured him targeting children or young adults. Some featured young adults driven insane or to act on his behalf, while others did not, and even more claim that investigating the Slender Man will draw his attention.
I’m sure by now many of you have heard the tragic story of the two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls who stabbed a friend 19 times because the girls state, Slender Man was calling for them to do it.
Authorities claim the girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser lured their friend Payton Leutner into the woods and stabbed her 19 times on May 31, 2014 as a sacrificial offering to this shadowy creature of the night. So that this Slander Man would reward the two girls by taking them to where he dwells, to live with him forever as murder proxies to his unbinding direction.
Some skeptics claim that these two girls were not working alone but were in fact part of a larger organization who worship the Slender Man as a cult figure and deity that the press have decline to report.
But the question still remains. Is Slender Man real?
Perhaps, in our most deepest and darkest nightmares.
