Beware the Slenderman Trailer

"To believe in the boogeyman isn't that hard… And they believed it was real." HBO has debuted an official trailer for the documentary Beware the Slenderman, about the myth of the Slenderman which resulted in two young girls trying to murder one of their friends to see if he was real. Does anyone know this story already? It's a true story, at least the part about the two delusional girls who believed in this myth, and the internet helped fuel their fascination with him. This doc seems to examine the before and after, looking at how it happened and what the myth of the Slenderman means, how it's even possible that something like this created online can seem so real in the minds of these two girls. This looks fascinating, and quite freaky.

Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Irene Taylor Brodsky's doc Beware the Slenderman, on YouTube:

Slenderman Docs Poster

Shot over 18 months with heartbreaking access to the families of the would-be murderers, the film plunges deep down the rabbit hole of their crime, a Boogeyman and our society’s most impressionable consumers of media. The entrance to the internet can quickly lead us to its dark basement, within just a matter of clicks. How much do we hold children responsible for what they find there? Beware the Slenderman is directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky, of docs Hear and Now, The Final Inch, and One Last Hug: Three Days at Grief Camp previously. The film first premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival. Beware the Slenderman will debubt on HBO starting January 23rd, 2017. Curious?

    I love the concept for this. We need more horror documentaries. Has anyone seen Cropsey? Or does anyone have any other horror doc suggestions?
