The Slender Man Mythos back to reviews
Comments
His prey are the cold and the dead
Welcome to the Slender Man Mythos, where hope is a pipe dream, friendships decay, and survival is never guaranteed. No matter which series you start with, you are grabbed by the throat and thrust into a world of insanity, terror and eternal dread. It is within this mythos that strange cults chant the name of their uncaring god, space-time is folded at will, masked madmen stalk you at every turn, houses are made from leaves and sickly memories, bags of blood and organs are hung in silent forests, and you are forever alone and surrounded by eyes simultaneously.

Don't bother trying to hide; concrete and metal canít keep out something that only chooses to be physical. Every breath you take is counted by forces too unknowable for the human mind to comprehend. Once you step into this realm of Lovecraftian torment, you can never truly return to a sane existance.

.sticks and stones will break your bones, but pray he doesn't find you.
Sooooooooooo, you like it?

Welcome to the Slender Man Mythos, where nothing really happens, update schedules slip, and you keep watching because it might get better. No matter which series you start with, you will see the same tropes played out over and over again. It is within this mythos that tall, skinny, out-of-place humanoids are gonna get you except not really 'cause they're really big fans of found footage Youtube shows, masked madmen just kind of... run around and post cryptic videos that don't do anything, tropes become predictable, the acting is not that good for the most part, and people wear Bio Shock t-shirts. Strange cults demonstrate their inability to act as they dress in board shorts and generic masks and ham it up like you wouldn't believe.

Don't bother trying to hide; nothing will really happen, but a guy will post a video response to everything you do and the footage will distort. Every breath you will take will be kinda cough-y and you might blackout occasionally, but you should be find. Once you step into this realm of low budgets and creepypasta, you will keep watching despite growing dissatisfaction with the different series.
