From the web series:
- Ear Worm: The bizzare song used by the Slender cult is oddly catchy.
- Narm: Rainwood Memorial Elementary School when Slendy appears and is seen walking on camera, can either be seen as this or Nightmare Fuel.
- Special Effects Failure: At the end of Log #14-1, after Chris finds Greg's corpse, he turns around to find Slendy standing on the stairs with glaringly obvious human hands.
- What an Idiot: In Log 14-1. Note to Chris, exploring the darkened house alone is NOT a good idea.
- Greg see Genre Blind
- Word of God: Alex and Chris have become some-what regulars on the Around the Campfire podcast, where they share a lot of behind the scenes details. Their first appearance was on episode 2, with Chris returning on episode 3 along with Tim from Marble Hornets.
From the film:
- Complete Monster: Elijah Baker is Sean's great-grandfather, and a factory worker turned farmer during The Great Depression. One day, to get good crops, he made a Deal with the Devil for a Human Sacrifice. He honored this deal by killing drifters who came looking for work. When his pregnant wife found out about his crimes, he made her his next sacrifice. This was his undoing, as two police officers came to investigate her disappearance and found her body. Elijah managed to kill one of the cops before the other guns him down.
- Moral Event Horizon: Elijah killing his pregnant wife to cover up his other murders.
