COMPLETE! "It can't be real! There's no 500-year-old guy in a jester hat lurking just out of sight, waiting to abduct willing teenagers! We would have heard of him before now, right? #WhoIsLerosy"
There was once an innocent time in our lives when we sang nursery rhymes in a circle, holding hands with friends, never realizing that one of those songs was a warning... On an anonymous forum site, one girl asks the question, "Who is Lerosy?" The discussion thread quickly veers off track when someone claiming to be Lerosy tells another girl with the same question that he's waiting outside her window.
Amid the clamor of outrageous comments and trolls, a mystery begins to unravel until the group learns that the original poster has actually gone missing. Blending truth and mythology, impossible conspiracies abound and chilling confessions arise, as some of the forum users not only admit to knowing about Lerosy, but what he may have done to the girl. Powerless to escape from what they're reading, this idiotic mob of screen names, once bent on childish humor and verbal chaos, becomes involuntary witnesses to the unnerving details of a father's hunt for his daughter's fabled captor.
Fitting into the 'found footage' realm of supernatural horror and suspense, and stylistically similar to TAP by Wattpad, #WhoIsLerosy turns forum sites, an ordinary venue from the digital age where many of us feel safe to visit on a daily basis, into the setting for a narrative thread that will make you afraid to use your phone in the dark.
