It looks like a rolling shutter effect, but I've only ever seen it done with still photos before.

I suspect it's digital. It looks like the image is being updated by lines from the bottom to the top, with each line delayed a little from the line below it.

Thanks for that. I last took German in 7th grade, which was 32 years ago. I have forgotten most of what I learned. So I did my best, and "confirmed" it using babelfish.

I'm new to somethingawful, so I made the mistake of skimming through this thread and looking at all the slenderman pics (again, ) late at night with the lights off.

So, today, I visited a client with dementia (I'm a social worker), and he kept telling me "The Tall Man's comin'...", which apparently he repeats ad nauseum all day every day.

Hating to double post, but I was bored and decided to creep the living hell out of myself by making the following:

I couldn't think of any good music to put over it, and I'm not sure if my voice is menacing enough for a voiceover.

Holy crap, 46 pages down. What am I supposed to do with my evenings now?

I thought I was doing very well vis a vis: not freaking out about the Slender Man, until I left my bedroom and came back to it this morning. Now, I have up at the moment a tall drying rack with my laundry hanging down, which means a lot of black clothes, and an unfortunately-positioned head-sized white towel hanging from the top. I think you can tell where I'm going with this.

Came back upstairs with my cereal, opened my bedroom door, SLENDER MAN IN MY BEDROOM.

I nearly had a heart attack. Hell, it even scared me in the next few moments, when I opened my door again in full knowledge that the drying rack was right behind it.

This is your fault. I hate you all.

Lies, having a daily dose of supernatural awesomeness via this thread made that scare totally worth it.

At least my nights are safe. I'm having the occasional Slender Man dream, but they're not actually scary at all. I'm not someone being stalked by him. I am him, skating on the fog and scaring the poo poo out of a lot of poor bastards with cameras. It's damned fun, I tell you what.

I like the font, but I can't help feeling it's a little too jaunty for a Slender Man movie. Love the way it slides on screen, though. Can you make it slide off like that as well?

Using the Martin Luther picture kind of killed my suspension of belief. It's just such a famous image, and so easy to find the un-shopped original. Which is a shame, because the stuff it leads into with the kids' drawings and Josef Franz getting locked away is awesome.

Having the music briefly die at "but the Slender Man remains" was really cool.

I'd love to see it with audio distortion and jumped frames, but I don't want to just say "copy Marble Hornets". Sadly, what's justified in a handheld video camera tape wouldn't make so much sense in a digitally created and polished trailer. Although those things are caused by the almighty Slender Man...

...now I'm imagining a trailer uploaded with a spot of audio distortion and suchlike, and a note in the sidebar saying that the upload keeps going screwy and so this is a placeholder until you manage to get one working flawlessly.

But you never do. Because Slender Man likes to maintain creative input into productions bearing his name.

I know this is kind of late and stupid but it gave me nightmares so I suppose it counts.

On Christmas Eve I was walking up to church with my family (The one time a year I actually go) and since it had been several weeks since I stopped reading this thread, I was cooling down a little. Then in the field outside my house I noticed a really tall thin shape, with a white blob on top. None of my family members seemed to notcie, so I eyed it pretty warily as we got closer.

Turns out someone on my street had built an 8-foot tall snowman, extremely thin and with the shape of a creepy smile hacked into his featureless head.

Everyone thought it was creepy but I shat a brick. So than you GBS for ruining christmas

I am but sad I didn't take a photo, as it was gone the next day...

Does any one have a copy of the flier that was made a few pages back. I want to print one out and make some copies and put them around my school and maybe a couple in town and see what happens. If not copy of it remains any input as to what I should list on the page other than a description of Slender Man and what steps to take if encountered?

"Smells like a Squatch"


It could just be me; but I'm starting to find that slender man isn't all that creepy lately. Its like he is being stretched out too much. I think its more creepy just having the 6'5" - 6'11" well dressed suited faceless man. The more normal he appears at the weird places is what makes it creepy. Like in Halloween movies where Myer's is just standing in background still.

The art-work is cool people, it's just my 2 cents on the slender man concept.

Maybe it just isn't creepy because there's nothing really scary about some tall thing dressed in a suit. Maybe if it showed some kind of pain, agony, sadness, had some context, or was at least naked (to explain that some "paranormal" being wasn't really going for a fashion statement) it would be a little creepy.

Over use, and lack of context have negated his creepiness. I was most freaked out not by what I read here, but where my mind went from there.

This is a painting I bought from a girl I know about 2 years ago. I love it, but everyone I have over asks me to cover it up when they spend the night. I don't know why it creeps people out so much, until I read about Slenderman.
