I have always been a bit fascinated by Slenderman and when I aeard about the horrible crime where 12-year old girls stabbed another girl because ”Slenderman told them to”, I knew I wanted to find out more about this case and that is why I saw this documentary.
Beware the Slenderman: Tells the story of two 12-year old girls, who attempted to murder one of their friends in an attempt to appease Slenderman, a fictional monster from a horror website.
Beware the Slenderman is a good documentary which both focuses on the perpetrators and about the story of Slenderman. The only complaint that I have is that I would have wished to hear more from the victim, but maybe that was not a possibility, but that would have been very interesting. The interviews with the girls was very fascinating and horrific.
I did like the fact that they researched a lot about Slenderman and took time to present this fictional character, instead of just briefly mentioning him in a sentence or two.
