The Slenderman is perhaps more prominent than he’s ever been right now. Rumors have even circulated that he may feature in the new season of American Horror Story. The character has developed a storied history in the years since he first haunted the Internet. To say the least, he is easily the most well known Creepy Pasta on the Worldwide Web. He was even cited as the reason two young girls in Waukesha, Wisconsin stabbed one of their classmates 19 times. The young ladies’ only explanation for their tragic act of violence was that they did to please The Slenderman.
