Beware the Slenderman

Synopsis: Lurking in the shadows of the Internet, a faceless modern-day bogeyman has attracted the attention and fear of a young generation who whisper his name online. Slenderman lives on the dark pages of the web, where impressionable youth create and cultivate his mythos in message boards, YouTube clips and various other digital incantations. But the online fairy tale becomes a shocking real-life horror as two 12-year-old girls, guided by their devotion to Slenderman, lure their friend into the woods to attempt a seemingly inexplicable, brutal murder. From the depths of one the Internet's most unsettling creations to the court case that must consider the consequences, Beware the Slenderman brings to light questions of accountability in an age where young, growing minds are only a few clicks away from creating and consuming something that may influence them to commit unspeakable crimes.

and Morgan was never like that.

You know, she just...

She always just did

her own thing,

and if people didn't like it,

well, that was their problem.

Kitties and puppies

aren't wild animals.

- No, that's right.

- They're not. They're pets.

I had a camera in her face

for a good portion

of her childhood,

so I think she got sick

of it sometimes.

She got a real miniature baby grand

piano for Christmas one year.

And she would sit there

for quite a long time,

just making up

sweet little songs.

And we tried to capture as many

of them as we could on video,

but usually as soon as she realized

that we were paying attention

or recording her,

she would stop.

They'll stay stray forever

One thing about Morgan

that always struck us...

as a little...

odd was that she...

She didn't react the way

that you would

expect her to react...

like at the movies.

Like, if something bad happened

to the main character, she...

she wouldn't

have empathy for them.

Bambi, come here!


New spring grass.

I remember watching "Bambi"

with her for the first time.

We were so worried

to watch it with her,

because we thought she was gonna be

so upset when... when the mother died.

Bambi, quick! The thicket!

Faster! Faster, Bambi!

Don't look back!

Keep running! Keep running!

But the mother died,

and Morgan just said,

"Run Bambi, run! Get out

of there, save yourself!"

You know?

And she wasn't sad about it.

We made it!

We made it, Mother!



And I could think of...

a lot of other examples

along those lines

where she hasn't reacted

in the way

that we would expect

a little girl to react.

We were aware that Morgan

was interested in Slenderman.

She would show us some of the

characters and some of the stories.

While I wasn't thrilled
