The internet is full of wonderful surprises. About ten years ago, the internet gave birth to a new breed of horror called “Creepy Pasta”. With the birth of “Creepy Pasta”, came a legend known as The Slender Man. In this episode, we’re sharing our experiences with creepy pasta and slender man. For Brandon, a majority of his exposure to the genre was through the YouTube channel, Marble Hornets. If you wanna check them out, click here. However, both of our first dip into the genre of Creepy Pasta is actually “Squidward’s Suicide”. If you’ve never heard it, you can check it out below. What’s your first forte into creepy pasta?

DOES THE FILM SUFFER FOR ITS’ RATING?

PG-13 horror movies don’t always have the best reputation or quality. There are exceptions to the rule though with films like A Quiet Place or The Ring. Can a film really suffer or be choked merely because of its’ demographic? Can it suffer because of its’ rating? Do you think that Slender Man could of been of better quality had he gotten the “R” rating? Sound off in the comment section.
