I enjoy the Slender Man mythos. The ARGs can get really imaginative.

Other than Marble Hornets, there are two video series'. EverymanHYBRID and TribeTwelve.
TribeTwelve is kind of poorly acted but worth watching if you need more of that Svelte Fellow fix. EverymanHYBRID is actually pretty excellent, but because it spans videos, blogs and tweets, it requires a bit of work to remain in the loop.

Also there are a few Slenderblogs, but I always found them lacking. A lot of them really push the boundries of willing suspension of disbelief. It is difficult to convey things through text, so they often have to resort to unrealistic writing.
For instance, Seeking Truth. At one point Zeke gets drunk and he starts writing like someone trying to sound like a drunk person. All "sh" instead of "s" and shit. It's pretty terrible, honestly.

Oh, and if you find yourself unable to sleep, there are a few [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxDUto-NnY4] mock [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MXYC_jX2Wc&feature=player_embedded] videos [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmZ90VijO_0] you could watch to lessen the blow.

Nice discussion, bro.

Slender Man is a mythical creature now? Bullshit. He was just created for some creepy photoshopping stuff iirc.
Don't SAY that, otherwise he'll get you!

Called Marble Hornets. Starts slow, but movies this gripping usually do. Watched it once around midnight, and didn't come out of my room for about a day...

I think you're confusing Slender Man with Candlejack. They're both rath

Can't watch it. I got 12 seconds in and gave up. Will watch in morning......No curious side, I will not watch it!.....Son of a *****, fine I will. Sorry to bring you in to this arguement, Deathkingo.

Meh, I'm the same way about Amnesia: the Dark Descent. I think playing that game is a stonking great idea until I look at the icon. Then it seems so...terrible.

Don't watch it in the day, though. It'll ruin half the fun. The best time to watch scary things is when the sun is going down. That way, it gradually gets darker...and darker...and darker...

Normally, I am the man when it comes to scary things. I laughed at Paranormal Activity. I scoffed at the Exorcist. But, like I said earlier, my one weakness is The Thing. Slender Man reminds me of The Thing.

All the references to Marvel characters sort of gave it away to me, there's no way this would be a "real" myth if they constantly use comic-book references to provide context.
Same here. That's the point the suspension of disbelief comes crashing down and you realise that it was just written by some guy who is probably a little too interested in comics.

I like a comic as much as the next guy, but I like to think that if I was trying to describe what was supposed to be some scary creature, I'd leave references to them out of it.
One comic guy that freaks me out is this guy:



Read the sandman series, it's great

Who the hell is Candlejack anyways and what is so "scary" anyways? No one has ever given me a straight answer about him. D:

That doesn't tell me anything, it's just a clip from a show (what show is that by the way?) and it doesn't seem scary at all. I'm still very confused by it. D:

It's from Freakazoid. It's not supposed to be scary.

Candlejack is a meme. When you say candlejack, you can't finish your post as per the laws of the internet. You have to cut off in th

Also be sure to watch out for the notorious Fat Man. This mythical creature has been described large in size and American in nature. Often seen lurking around fast food vendors.

as a fat man, I lol'd.

Slender man is just kind of stupid, although it is fun to mess with people who don't know what it is.
or to screw with friends who are scizo that hate the mere utterance or texting to them of the words "Slendy, MarbleHornets, or gimme 20 dollas"

What's up with the whole suicide thing by the anchor at the end? Did he think the guy was trying to kill himself with chicken?
