Movie Review: Beware the Slenderman

I became aware of this attempted murder case when People Magazine ran an article on it.    Two friends:  Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier  become obsessed with the character which is an internet meme:

Slender_Man

The idea was to photoshop images of the tall, faceless man in photos and create stories.

Apparently these two girls decided it was real and attempted to kill their friend and become followers and live with him in his house in the woods.

So, HBO made a documentary about the TWELVE YEAR OLD defendants and the history of the Slender Man meme.

Beware the Slenderman

Fascinating and very sad.  These girls are quite disturbed and the movie shows how they really are out of touch with reality.  What was heart wrenching though, was the interviews with the parents who really saw no signs of the horrible attack to come and their devastation at the events.

In this age of altered facts and internet memes, one hopes it isn't a sign of more to come and that it is in fact, a learning moment and that more tragedies don't come from the modern day bogeyman.
