He’s creepypasta 

Slender Man is a supernatural character that is firstly mentioned as a creepypasta Internet meme created by Something Awfulforums user Eric Knudsen (also known as “Victor Surge”) in 2009.

What’s creepypasta? These are horror-related legends or images that are spread with the help of copying and pasting around the Internet.

How was he created?

Slender Man was created on June 10, 2009 is the thread of Photoshop contest in which users were challenged to “create paranormal images.”

One user Eric Knudsen aka “Victor Surge”, posted two black-and-white images of groups of children to which he added a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit with two captions.

The first one reads, “We didn’t want to go, we didn’t want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time…— 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.”

The second one reads, “One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as “The Slender Man”. Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence. — 1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986.”

 Slender Man is a monster, who stalks and kidnaps children. He is tall, very thin and wears a black suit with a white shirt and tie.

His arms bend in any place, have no joints and can lengthen. He does not have a face.

What inspired Knudsen to create Slender Man?

This creepy character was inspired by Zack Parsons’ “That Insidious Beast”, Stephen King’s “The Mist”,  the Tall Man from the 1979 film Phantasm, H. P. Lovecraft novels, William S. Burroughs works, Victor Sage from DC Comics, and the survival horror video games Silent Hill and Resident Evil.

Links to folklore 

Professor Shira Chess of the University of Georgia wrote a book “Folklore, Horror Stories, and the Slender Man: The Development of an Internet Mythology,” where she connected the Slender Man to ancient folklore about fairies.

Slender Man is similar to fairies as it’s hard to understand what he wants, his appearance is vague and often shifts to show what we are scared of, he lives the woods and wild places and kidnaps children.

“It is important to note that few of the retellings identify exactly what kind of monster the Slender Man might be, and what his specific intentions are- these points all remain mysteriously and usefully vague.”

Game series

Inspired by the Internet , Parsec Productions developed their own game called “Slender: The Eight Pages” and “Slender: The Arrival.” The idea is to collect 8 pieces of paper starting from the sunset to the midnight.

While you’re looking for the pages, you see Slender Man wondering around you slamming noise and/or static on the screen. Once all the pages are collected, the player is allowed to walk around in total silence until Slender Man appears and ends the game.
