13 The monster functions as a scapegoat in both fictional horror and nonfictional true-crime, where we are able to question the most horrific aspects of human nature. The monstrosity of the Slender Man is embedded not only in his nonhuman form, then, but also in the proxies that he necessarily others—those he turns into monsters to commit the very acts that he cannot or will not. 0006 44 Folklore, Horror Stories, and the Slender Man Blankness and the uncanny The horror experienced on encountering the featureless face of the Slender Man can be tied to age-old anxieties that guided some of the earliest American horror and monster stories.
