The ‘Slender Man’ Movie Hires Director Sylvain White
We’ve seen an odd spike recently in the entertainment industry’s mining of popular online creepypastas — strange, scary stories shared on sites like Reddit where young people congregate to try to frighten each other out of their wits. Syfy’s show Channel Zero is currently running its first season based on the popular creepypasta Candle Cove, which features, among other things, a monster made entirely from human teeth. Slender Man is probably the most popular of these stories: it’s gotten a video game, an HBO documentary series, and now a movie, which will be directed by Sylvain White.
