Slender Man can now be found all over the internet. He lurks in the shadows and the dark corners watching. Watching the children play. He is tall and slender as his name implies with long arms and a black suit. His face is featureless and therefore all the more unsettling to the observer. There is a suggestion of long black tentacles coming from his back. What does he do with those?
Slender Man first appeared on the internet on June 10, 2009, when his image was submitted to a photoshop contest on SomethingAwful.com by a man named Eric Knudsen under the pseudonym Victor Surge. Mr. Knudsen did not just submit a spooky photoshopped image, he included a story to go along with his photograph. That is what caught the attention of so many. The photo is below.
