‘American Horror Story’ To Focus On Slender Man Next Season
If you’re a fan of AHS and internet urban legends than you are shit in luck because rumor is it looks like the show will tackle the ever so creepy Slender Man legend next season. According to an unnamed source close to the show had some interesting things to say:
“Someone else wrote the script, and AHS wants to adapt it to fit the show. They have to buy the rights. Then they’re going to figure out the cast from there.”
If that’s true that may have me once again invested in the show, which after the past two seasons has left me a little cold. The show’s creator Ryan Murphy recently commented on the upcoming season saying:
“The next thing we’re crafting up is very, very different than [Hotel]. Not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark.”
So heres hoping that means Slender Man will show up at some point. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of Slender Man here’s a description courtesy of Slender Man Wiki:
Slender Man (also known as Slenderman) is a supernatural creature with nebulously defined characteristics and abilities. Slender Man was first mentioned in Something Awful Forum’s “Create Paranormal Images”. Slender Man generally appears (in modern times) as a tall man in a black or grey suit, red or black tie, and white shirt, with no eyes, mouth, or clearly defined facial features. It has no hair, and generally has normal-looking bare hands, albeit with fingers longer and bonier than a typical human. Slender Man is typically depicted in imagery and literature as between 6 and 15 feet tall, depending on the situation, and in video as around 6-7 feet tall. Because of its inexact nature, and differences between series, no one has yet determined what it is. Currently, the two leading theories as to what the Slender Man may be are the Tulpa Effect and Quantum Theory.
