Beware the Slenderman

BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN tells the story of the internet's elusive Boogeyman and two 12-year-old girls who would kill for him. Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier lured their best friend into the woods, stabbed her 19 times, then set out on an odyssey to meet the tall and faceless man known online as Slenderman. Shot over 18 months with heartbreaking access to the families of the would-be murderers, the film plunges deep down the rabbit hole of their crime, a Boogeyman and our society's most impressionable consumers of media. The entrance to the internet can quickly lead us to its dark basement, within just a matter of clicks. How much do we hold children responsible for what they find there?

With no artist in play, it becomes clear how fallacious it is to pin the blame on artists for the actions of disturbed individuals who consumed their art at all. January 24, 2017 | Full Review… Sean T. Collins New York Observer Top Critic

Brodsky's film has multiple goals, and might have been better served by a docu-series like Netflix's Making a Murderer, given how much it attempts to tackle. July 27, 2016 | Full Review… Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com Top Critic

Irene Taylor Brodsky's documentary is mostly a straightforward, inevitably engrossing true-crime tale. May 27, 2016 | Full Review… Dennis Harvey Variety Top Critic

Beware the Slenderman

Despite the terrifying and gruesome subject matter, Beware the Slenderman is a documentary that fails to spook or even chill. March 1, 2017 | Full Review… Brodie Lancaster Junkee
