Slenderverse: EverymanHYBRID

Posted on by

The Slenderverse has become oversaturated with various series over the past few years. What had started as something new and exciting in 2009 was overrun with subpar Marble Hornets clones over the following few years. Now, six years after Marble Hornets ended, you can’t throw a rock on YouTube without hitting a new series with three entries that will likely end up dead in a few weeks after the creator quits in a huff because people are critical of it. This week, I think we should talk about a series that hasn’t quit, despite running for five years.

Let’s talk about EverymanHYBRID. Continue reading

Slenderverse: TribeTwelve

Posted on by

After the previous review I posted of Marble Hornets, I thought I should cover one that was initially inspired by it: TribeTwelve. Take note that the series has not ended, and that there is ample time for new viewers to catch up, possibly even before the next entry. You can likely binge watch the series up to now over a couple of evenings, and I recommend doing so.

The series follows Noah Maxwell, who used the channel originally for an abandoned school project. Rather than let the channel’s cool name go to waste, he decided to make it a tribute to his old friend and cousin, Milo Asher. Milo had committed suicide recently, and Noah, in his grief, began going over old footage the pair had shot of them during Milo’s last visit two years previous. Noah had noticed that Milo was acting odd, but when he went over the videos, he found some things he hadn’t picked up on at the time, things that hinted that Milo’s strange behavior, and possibly his suicide, were not necessarily the result of mental illness. Soon enough, after spotting Slenderman (referred to in-universe as The Administrator) in the videos, Noah becomes an apparent target, and is stalked by Slenderman as well. The series documents his search for answers and a solution to his problem while he slowly spirals downward into depression and, possibly, madness. Continue reading

Slenderverse: Marble Hornets

Posted on by 0 comment

If you’ve been active on the Internet for longer than twenty minutes, you’ve likely come across Slenderman by now. A creation of Victor Surge, Slenderman has spread rapidly through the Internet like wildfire.

For the uninitiated, Slenderman is a monster. A Lovecraftian horror, Slenderman (or Slendy, as fans have been known to call him– but NEVER call him “Slender,” or the nerds will find you) takes the basic shape of a very tall, very thin humanoid. Varying adaptations depict him with some differences– for instance, some include tentacles, some don’t– but two things are always the same. First, he has no face– where one would be, there is just a white blank void. Second, he wears a suit. Or, as some say, it looks like a suit, but is actually his skin? It’s not really certain. It doesn’t matter, because Slenderman is freakin’ horrifying. Continue reading
