I just watched the HBO documentary Beware the Slenderman.
I thought it was fantastic.
There were PhDs discussing the creation of myth and folklore, a long analysis of The Pied Piper, comparing it with the Slender Man mythos, and a deep look at internet culture, among other introspective looks at culture and humanity.

Then you should read this interview I did with Stephen Graham Jones, author of twenty-three books and over two hundred and fifty short stories.
