YouTube has a movie criticism problem; too often films are judged on arbitrary binary attributes and there is no nuance. Well, today I am going to argue the merits of 2018’s Slender Man. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it is a ‘good movie’, but rather that it is a lot smarter than you might think and most importantly – it’s not all bad. Or, ‘bad’. We’re going to talk about Marble Hornets, character agency and mythological representation.
