Directed by Irene Brodsky, Beware the Slenderman is a true story about teenagers Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier from Wisconsin, who were accused of stabbing their friend 19 times in the name of the long-limbed phantom. During a recent conversation with Complex, Brodsky said, ‘ I think it’s so easy to want to have a villain, it’s totally human. You want to know there’s a villain. But I really don’t think there’s one single villain. I think it’s more of a perfect storm of the media, the age, the social isolation these girls were feeling, and also it’s important to remember that Slenderman is a good idea. He’s an idea. He’s a character that somebody thought of.’ Set to debut on HBO in January 2017, check out the trailer below:
