There’s a new trailer for the HBO documentary, Beware the Slenderman, and it’s just as creepy and unsettling as you might imagine. Tracing the origin and evolution of the now-legendary Internet fairy tale, the film exposes the strange spell the Slenderman character holds on the imaginations of today’s youth. Specifically, the film delves into the Wisconsin case of two twelve-year-old girls, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, who were accused of stabbing their friend Payton Leutner, 19, several times, under orders of the Slenderman.
Do you plan to watch the film? It will premiere on HBO January 23, 2017.
