The upcoming, sixth season of American Horror Story will reportedly center on the Slender Man.
Slender Man or Slenderman is a supernatural character that originated as an Internet meme created on the Something Awful forums in 2009.
The character resembles a tall, thin man with a blank and usually featureless face, wearing a black suit. Created by Eric Knudsen, the being has been used in a variety of media in recent years, usually depicted as silently stalking victims.
In the American Horror Story version, a source tells US Magazine that Slender Man will be stalking children.
“Someone else wrote the script, and AHS wants to adapt it to fit the show,” says the insider. “They have to buy the rights. Then they’re going to figure out the cast from there.”
