I just discovered the Slenderman Mythos

Hey guys,

                I just thought I'd recommend what I think is the best amateur horror currently on the web today and nicely blows away a lot of the current fair out there. I'd say more but I think it's best actually entered in "cold" as opposed to something people should really research ahead of time.

                For those who want something slightly more substantial the whole thing sort of works like The Blair Witch Project. The Blair Witch "phenomenon" was always a bit more hyped up than it should be but it and Paranormal Activity successfully tried to make themselves authentic. A lot of people can't put on their suspension of disbelief blinders long enough to enjoy them, which may or may not be the case with this story, but I suggest you give it a try.

                It certainly appeals to my Lovecraftian sensibilities for the fact that I have NO idea what's going on yet.

                The first 'series' with Slenderman starts with the Marble Hornets series here.

  1. Slender Man is pretty boring. I prefer SCP 9http://www.scp-wiki.net/) better. Lots more fridge horror and some comedy too.
