On May 31, 2014, SLENDERMAN went from fictional Internet meme to household word when two 12 year-old Wisconsin girls lured a friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times in an effort to earn the favor of the faceless, elongated, dark-suited figure. A few days later, an emotionally disturbed 13 year-old girl near Cincinnati attacked her mother with a knife in their kitchen in the guise of Slenderman.
These real life homages are all the more disturbing because the creation of the character is readily traceable to writer Eric "Victor Surge" Knudsen on the "Something Awful" Internet forum in 2009. But as the most powerful memes do, this one seeped into the very fiber of online culture to the extent that five years later young girls were willing to kill for it.
Interestingly, AMHRadio was ahead of the Slenderman Zeitgeist. On the March 11, 2014 episode with documentary filmmakers JOSH ZEMAN and RACHEL MILLS, whose urban legend films CROPSEY and KILLER LEGENDS expose the terrifying truths behind the myths, we discussed the the Slenderman meme, with Zeman uniquely declaring the character to be the very personification of the Internet.
Now Zeman and Mills return to discuss developments in the Slenderman saga and what may lie ahead.

On Sunday, 3/16 at 8pE, CHILLER debuts its new 2-hour special, KILLER LEGENDS. The horror documentary follows filmmakers Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate the true crimes behind these urban legends while exploring how the myths evolved and why we continue to believe.
The documentary probes the following legends of:
The Candyman: Though the legend is prolific, in actuality there is only one documented case of a child dying from tainted candy: 8-year-old Timothy O’Bryan, who was poisoned on Halloween by a real-life miscreant who used the legend to hide his crime, earning him the fateful nickname.
The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs: While the babysitter has become the go-to victim in so many horror films, does the same hold true in real life? Tragically, yes, as the filmmakers discover in unsolved case of Janett Christman, a babysitter slain in Columbia, MO, in 1950.
The Hookman: Based upon the legend of two teens lovers terrorized by a madman with a hook for a hand, filmmakers investigate the case of a killer known as The Phantom, who in 1946 attacked five couples parked on lovers’ lanes in Texarkana.
The Killer Clown: The filmmakers investigate “phantom clown” scares that have spontaneously occurred since the 1980s. As the duo explores Chicago’s creepy clown past, from John Wayne Gacy to Bozo, they attempt to answer the question of how clowns became so evil, and why they continue to haunt our nightmares.

Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis' grandson, Filmmaker Muta' Ali talks to host @ShellieGaines about his heartfelt documentary, based on his grandparents' Love, Life & Activism, on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryBLOG.com Special Thank you to @DashonFarad of Arise for your contribution!
The grandson of actress Ruby Dee is mourning the loss of his famous grandmother and releasing a new documentary about her extraordinary life.Compiled by The Gist of Freedom from NY1's Cheryl Wills report.
The film follows Ruby from her early childhood to her acting career when she declared that she would NEVER portray a maid or a mammy and how she was anxious to get her signature role in "A Raisin In The Sun."
The riveting documentary about Ruby Dee was released Sunday just days after her death. The film is called "Life's Essentials with Ruby Dee" and her grandson, Muta'Ali, is the director. He says he watched his grandmother pass away peacefully.
"We were all there around her bed in her room when it happened. And my mother told me that she told her as she was transitioning that everything is alright," says Muta'Ali.
"I'm hoping though that today's generation or younger than me even can get a glimpse into Ossie and Ruby that they haven't had before," says Muta'Ali.

One convention, four teens, thousands of zombies... what could go wrong?

Care to delve into the Crop Circle phenomenon with a film maker who has visited more than 100 English Crop Circles personally?
Crop Circles have long been considered one of the first physical manifestations of ET communication; visual masterpieces laid into acres of wheat, canola, barley and corn year after year all over the world—where art and mathematics are blended together to create pictograms, sacred geometric formulas and coded messages. Yet today, their existence remains a mystery for many people on Earth.
Who better to decode the crop circle phenomenon than one of the world’s most prolific crop circle filmmakers, and leading experts?
Patty Greer’s first hand, long-term exposure to the fascinating phenomenon resulted in her finding communication code between the balls of light on the only footage in the world (shot by filmed by John Waley, UK 1996) capturing the manifestation of a crop circle in mere seconds on film. The footage captures two balls of light communicating, after which the wheat swirls down in seconds into a perfect Crop Circle! Proving that these intelligent balls of light are communicating with us, this incredible footage was fortunately shared publicly, allowing others to witness the magic of the crop circle phenomenon, and realise the truth behind them.
Join Brendan D. Murphy and Aimee Devlin on Global Freedom Movement Radio as Patty Greer decodes the crop circle phenomenon.
