A bunch of people have been asking me what Slender series I’ve watched and what blogs to read and shit, so I’m just putting it all on a big list so I don’t have to keep making them up.
I do want to point out that there are many many other blogs and vlogs out there that I have not seen or heard of. These are merely the ones that I have seen, and these are my opinions and personal recommendations. If I watch/find more, I’ll edit this.
- Marble Hornets - Everyone starts out with this one, as it is the oldest, most famous, and one of the best Slender series out there. It’s one of my top favorites, because it’s easy to follow and gets interesting right from the start. And it’s decently creepy and much better than most horror movies.

- The Andersen Journals - This is another one of my top favorite channels. It’s interesting and has a really nice twist to it. The acting is really good, the video/audio editing is great, and I do believe there are even bits where it sounds like Slenderman is talking. It’s a fantastic concept. The only real fault to this series is how spaced out the updates tend to be. The wait is completely worth it, though, as the entries never cease to blow me away.
- Everyman HYBRID - This series has a lot going on in it. There is a lot of outside stuff, and it can get a little bit confusing in parts. But it’s the only Slender series I’ve seen that has brought in other paranormal creatures, and the story is really well done, if a bit slow at first. But if you’re going to watch it, make sure you are prepared to take a lot of time looking into the extra stuff that goes a long with it.

- TJA Projects - I wasn’t wicked into this series when I started, but I’ve grown to really love it. The story is good, and it’s the only series I’ve watched that actually used a child in it. It’s creepy and has scared me quite shitless at times. There are a few uneventful videos, but it doesn’t even matter because there are a lot of scary and action-y bits. Edit: Since I made this list, TJA has finished, and a sequel has been started. Related links: > TJA Projects Twitter
- Making New Memories - Supposed new sequel to TJA Projects. There isn’t a ton going on right now, however it does seem interesting so far.
- Five Zero Two - This is a personal favorite of mine. The guys do a really great job with these videos. Their Slenderman is, in my opinion, pretty well done, and the story is really starting to develop quite nicely. The beginning does have a few longer generally uneventful entries, but it picks up pretty quickly. The editing is pretty good for amateurs, and they are only the second series that I’ve seen to use tentacle animation.
- Dark Harvest - This one was definitely odd. It starts out with a suspicion of ghosts, not a monster. It quickly escalates into one of the strangest and freakiest story lines I’ve seen, and it’s got some really interesting parts in it. Related links: > Kind von der Ritter
- Tribe Twelve - People seem to like this one, but it’s probably my least favorite. There are a few really good bits in it, but for the most part, I don’t think the story is the best. The video edit work is what really keeps me around. The tentacle animation is quite good, and the audio bits are pretty freaky. There is also a cross over with Everyman HYBRID, though it is pretty small to the point where you don’t even have to watch EMH to understand it. Related links: > Noah’s Twitter
- Four Steps - This one is relatively new. The kids are young and there are a couple of longer uneventful entries, but it shows some promise. The eventful videos hook me in really easily. Definitely worth getting into, even if it is early.
- My Dark Journal - Good luck understanding this one on your own. I watched it and had to have someone who was involved with it explain it to me. From what I understand, it’s in the point of view of a proxie (someone who has been brain washed by Slenderman to use as a minion to lure in people, and pretty much do what he can’t) who is slipping in and out of his own free will. I actually really like the concept, since every other series I know is in the point of view of those being stalked. It’s interesting to watch and the video Märchen has the best acting in a Slender series video I’ve ever seen. Worth the watch. There are also signs that there may be a cross over with Compile Truth.
- Compile Truth - I don’t really understand this series, and I’ve only taken a very brief look at it. Whoever runs it makes videos compiling the events of other series into little 10-15 minute videos. From what people have told me, he has his own situation going on the side on the same channel, but when I looked, it was a little confusing to tell the series from the compilation project.
- Angel’s Game - I really really like this one. This is the first series I’ve come across after watching Marble Hornets that has really genuinely scared me into paranoia. I thought I was desensitized to these stories until I started this. This story has come to a complete close. Note: The link I have attached to the title is the original channel link, but not far into the story, two others join. All three channels were updated at the same time and each character has one.

- The Tutorial - Pretty much the only blog I’ve seen that’s interesting and worth following. The character, “M”, started the blog not to tell his story, but to help others who are being stalked by Slenderman in the form of a kind of a How To guide. It’s well written, and M brings up a lot of interesting theories of the Operator symbol, how to trick Slenderman, how to keep him at bay, how he came into existence, et cetera. It also did a very good job of freaking me out, and gives a good look into the actual Slender community. The oldest posts are further back, so start there. There aren’t too many pages.
- Seeking Truth - I know absolutely nothing about this blog. One of my friends told me it’s good, but after reading M’s Tutorial, I’m not really interested. But I’d figure that since people say it’s good and M mentions it a few times, I should include it.
