I also volunteer myself as one of the helpless victims, probably the cynical one that gets killed off first. I have a deep bassy scream and can run when I have to :mrgreen:
I can't decide if Slender Man is now less scary, or tap dancing is now more scary.
:lol:

I'll post the Mike Myers ballroom dancing when I find it

My friend downloaded and played Slender while I was over at her house yesterday. At one point, she had to clean dog hair out of her yogurt (don't ask).

I warned her that the AI of the game makes Slendy move closer and closer to you if you stay still. We only had one note, so we sat there for about five minutes while she cleaned her yogurt.

Then, all of a sudden, the camera panned by itself and BOOM! Slenderman in the face. ;_; We both screamed at the top of our lungs. Her 65 pound black Labrador came barreling down the stairs, barking and snarling because she thought her family was being attacked.

Horrible game. :lol:

Well it has fog, for starters. And I believe the Slender Man is more aggressive. On the other hand, I believe your character no longer has crippling asthma and can run for more than a half of a second.

I've heard they added tentacles for him.
But again, I've seen a let's play of the game and I decided to not play it by myself. I'm not that brave.

They did add tentacles. I watched a video of the new update on YouTube. Personally, I think Slendy's a little overdone now. I mean, you run into him like every 30 seconds. You can't build up suspense for a complete jumpscare when he's following you around like a lost puppy.

Just got the DVDs for Marble Hornets seasons one and two today. Gonna get my parents to watch them.

Also, there's this really good Slender Man song on iTunes. It's called Gone Gone Gone (the Slender Man Song).

I learned about Slender Man a couple of weeks ago... Pretty creepy dude... I also watched the marble hornets videos on YouTube and I liked them a lot. Some of them were pretty scary, especially entry #60.

Marble Hornets. The story of a man looking through the raw footage a missing friend shot for a movie years before, slowly discovering whatever horror it was that drove his friend into hiding...or worse.

Does that sound like an accurate assessment of the first season, anyone?

Oh, I hate these stories, and I have not ever been able to read one of these since I read a really horrific tale of a pychopathic murderer. That story was truly the most horrible thing I have ever read, and makes me cringe to remember it. But what was most disturbing of all is that someone in this world would dream up something like that.

You know, I think the pictures of Slenderman without the tentacles are creeper. The tentacles are just over-kill.

It's just adding too much onto something that should be scary because he's there, not because of what he does.

I agree that, in general, Slender Man's creepier without tentacles. However, I also think the tentacles can work if done right.

Edit: also, I'm nearly finished with the first draft of a Slender Man short short story. I decided to not do a full Slender Man novel, but an anthology of three Slender Man stories. Who wants a look at the first draft of this one story?

Me fo' sho! I love this kinda stuff and would really appreciate taking a look at your work. I've written short stories about Slendy in the past, but they've not been as chilling as I'd have liked :(

There's apparently another Slenderman game called Sanatorium, for those interested. xP

Here.

Hey, look who I drawed.

Image

Funny story behind this. I was trying to draw a hand gesture (the a-Okay one, or an F in Sign Language) and the thumb looked like an arm, the pointer finger looked like a leg walking, and the middle finger looked like the other leg. So I erased the rest of the hand, made the thumb longer, and made Mr. Slendy!!!

Indeed!

Speaking of, quick question. Since he's appeared numerous times and played a somewhat key role in EverymanHybrid, is the Rake open to discussion around here?

Isn't there a thread about creepy stuff like that? I guess if it directly relates to the Slender Man this thread is fine for that...

I wrote a poem about Slender man. It contains a warning message.

A man so pale
A suit so black,
You never know when He will act
If you're alone,
Or at your home
That is when Slender will come-

So in his ways you must not peer,
Or his presence you will fear,
And that will cause Him to appear-

And when he finds you,
You'll run as fast as you can,
But you can't get away from the Slender Man
