HBO announced earlier this year that it would be producing and showing a new documentary centered around the Slenderman. Directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky, Beware the Slenderman is a true story about Wisconsin teenagers Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, who were accused of stabbing their friend Payton Leutner 19 times in the name of the long-limbed apparition. The two teenagers were also found searching the forest for Slenderman’s supposed mansion. Brodsky spoke to Complex saying, “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.”

The documentary will debut on HBO in January 2017. In the meantime, check out the trailer above and let us know whether you’ll be tuning in.
