‘Slender Man’ Movie ‘Extremely Distasteful,’ Says Father Of Girl Who Stabbed Classmate

The mythos of the Slender Man, a fictional monster created on spooky internet forums, has enraptured indie horror directors since the creature’s bizarre inception. Now, a new horror film about the extra-dimensional cryptid is looking to scare a new generation.

Not everyone is pleased with the new movie, though. The father of a teenager who attempted to murder a classmate in the name of the faceless phantom is speaking out against the project, characterizing it as distasteful.

The trailer for the new film, simply titled “Slender Man,” was released just yesterday:

“Slender Man,” directed by Sylvain White and written by David Birke, tells the tale of a group of teens who are attempting to debunk the digital urban legend, when one of them suddenly goes missing. In the teaser, no overt references to the bizarre case of teenagers Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser are made, although the crime is implicitly in the background

Man Shoots Woman In The Face Multiple Times, Claiming She’s His Father In Disguise

A Colorado man accused of fatally shooting a woman in the face did so because, he told detectives, he believed that she had been his father after a sex-reassignment surgery.

Joseph Saur, 19, was “clearly under the influence of some kind of drug,” authorities claimed, after he arrived at a police station on Sunday to report that he had killed his father in self-defense. 

Saur claimed that his father had undergone sex-reassignment surgery in order to hide from the law, according to local reports.

“Joseph stated he acted in self-defense by shooting his father, (who) he explained had done bad things,” the police affidavit said. “Joseph said his father became a female to hide his identity to keep from being caught.”

His actual victim, Patience R. Stewart, 28, was reportedly shot multiple times in the face while lying in bed in her camper. 

“Joseph stated he grabbed a gun and

Alt-Right Conspiracy Theorist Accused Of Killing Father For Calling Him A Nazi

Conspiracy theorist Lane Davis, who had previously interned for the controversial Breitbart editor and alt-right figurehead Milo Yiannopoulos, has been accused of the murder of his father, Charles Davis.

According to The New York Daily News, police received a call about Lane and his father involved in an altercation. Lane’s mother, who made the call, said her son was “ranting about stuff on the internet” and calling them both “leftists” and “pedophiles.”

“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine told the dispatcher in the audio of a call obtained by the Daily Beast. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the internet.”

A second call was made minutes later, with Lane’s mother now reporting that Lane’s father had been stabbed. Lane then walked outside, awaiting the arrival of police. A third call was made by Lane’s mother: “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”
