The Slender Man is no exception. As a horror character, the Slender Man is a reminder of current cultural anxieties in a multitude of ways. In this chapter, we explore the many meanings of the Slender Man, acknowledging and considering a spectrum of possible ways of understanding this new monster of horror.
