Description
On May 31, 2014, two twelve-year old girls lured their classmate into a wooded area in Waukesha, Wisconsin and attempted to murder her. Their motive? To impress SlenderMan, a fictional supernatural character created online and spread through various internet memes. But where does childhood end and adult responsibility begin when terrifying ideas can duplicate, spread, and transform themselves in seemingly limitless ways? In BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN, her chilling examination of the crime, director Irene Taylor Brodsky explores the relationship between her young subjects and the ever-blurring line between our physical and online lives.
