Is the Slender Man only an urban myth or does he really exist? With the renewed interest in the strange creature, we decided to put together a series of reported stories across the world over the last 150 years that have a reference to the Slender Man (Der Grosse Man) mythology.
From the first reported encounter that took place in Virginia in the 1860's reported by Dr.Abe and Martha Mosely who ended up unleashing an evil force described as a "Thin Slender Man", to the last known sighting in 2011, we have compiled a collection of 12 frightening stories from across the world that trace the encounters of ordinary people with Slender.
Read them and decide for yourself whether the Slender Man is just a myth or if he lives amongst us...
Option to send us your story of your encounter with Slender.

I've never been aware of the whole Slender Man phenomenon, and after reading a few (extremely good) stories here prompted me to do a searching the Internet and find out as much ad I can. I must say it is very interesting and it is thanks to this app. About the stories here, there are 12 of them (hope they add more via updates soon), and each is not too long and just the right sized horror chunk. This is good stuff!
