Fiction Crosses Over
A new documentary detailing the events in the case of the Slenderman Stabbing is set to premiere on HBO on the 23rd January of next year.
For those unfamiliar, in 2014, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, both age 12 were accused for stabbing Peyton Leutner a total of nineteen times in sacrifice to now iconic e-myth Slenderman.
Slenderman, a long tall man-like being, often depicted in a suit believed to steal children, or more modernly; to methodically harass and confuse ad-infinitum. A creature born from a creative writing exercise, developed into creepy pastas, YouTube series, and even a semi-professional movie.
Slenderman is enchantingly mysterious and fierce, with the added bonus of being able to scramble camera footage, a true modern horror. This is why Geyser and Weier were so enthralled and dangerously obsessive.
While we wait for January 23rd, you can take a look at the trailer below and delve into the numerous articles available about the case.
