What started as a viral story/urban legend quickly turned into something very deadly when two young girls tried to murder one of their friends at the request of Slenderman.

Now, HBO Documentary Films will be airing a full documentary titled, Beware the Slenderman, which explores the origins of the urban legend and the horrible murder attempt.

"In 2014, Wisconsin teens Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier were accused of stabbing Payton Leutner, a friend, 19 times," according to Complex.

"The two were later found searching the woods for Slenderman's purported mansion."

The terrifying tale of Slenderman was also an official SXSW Film Festival selection thus adding to its overall popularity.

If while Halloween has past, if you happen to be a horror addict or into the creepy stuff, this one might be for you.

Check out the creepy trailer for Beware the Slenderman in the video below.
