3 Scary "Men" in Horror Short Films That Could Give Slender Man a Run for His Money

Don't get me wrong: Slender Man's scary all right, especially since he's essentially based on true events. That, however, can play against him in major ways given the backlash and controversy of the fact that while Slender Man's merely a myth, he still happens to stir one too many pots or cook too many chickens in the kitchen. When it involves recent real events, people don't view it as horror entertainment. Just "horror." The bad serious kind.

Needless to Say, That Means We're Inundated With the Next "Slender Man" to Hit the Airwaves on a Constant Basis


Myth is a powerful thing. Rumor mills churn, and imaginations soar. Of course, not everything flies the way Slender Man did as evidenced by the slightly inspired BYE BYE MAN which failed to frighten audiences at all. Heck, even the recent actual SLENDER MAN movie didn't arouse as much fear as it honestly should have. Again, though.... This is Slender Man we're talking about. A real phenomenon, probably not meant to be on the silver screen.

Thankfully we have some sweet horror movie shorts that could very easily succeed the legend that is Slender Man and probably surpass him. These noble efforts in capitalizing on some of the tropes and thoughts we have of the "unknown" or the "unseen" or the simply bizarre somehow reinvent what scared us all about a tall man with tentacles and no face.

There was just something awe-inspiring -- and hideous -- about the guy. We're thinking, however, that these boogeyman make the grade:

THE SMILING MAN



THE SANDMAN



THE MOONLIGHT MAN



Watch These Short Horror Films and See for Yourself If They Measure Up


They are, quite frankly, doing something right. The "Moonlight Man" even has a sequel offering right here. It's pretty much a safe bet we're going to see any of these adapted into feature film.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
