The Slender Male (likewise known as Slenderman) is an imaginary mythological personality that stemmed as a creepypasta Net meme produced by Something Terrible forums individual Eric Knudsen (additionally referred to as “Victor Rise”) in 2009. It is shown as a thin, unnaturally high humanoid with a featureless head and face and also putting on a black suit.
Slim Guy is a forthcoming American superordinary horror movie directed by Sylvain White and written by David Birke, based on the web meme of the same name by Eric Knudsen. The film stars Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso and Talitha Bateman, along with Javier Botet as the titular beast.
Beginning in 2014, a moral panic occurred over the Slender Man after readers of his fiction were connected to several violent acts, particularly a near-fatal stabbing of a 12-year-old girl in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
