A Self-Induced Hallucination is a 2018 documentary film directed and edited by Jane Schoenbrun. The film is made up of found YouTube videos in which different people talk about the fictional character called Slender Man. The film was released for free on Vimeo on June 19th, 2018 by the account “The Eyeslicer” and was a Vimeo Staff Pick. The film was later removed from Vimeo for unknown reasons. Jane Schoenbrun later directed, wrote and edited the film We’re All Going to the World’s Fair (2021) which received a wide release.[1][2][3][4][5]


There may be no plans to put the movie on video on demand services as Jane has said “I have no desire to profit from it, or to commodify it in a traditional sense. It feels too personal to me to do that.” The film was screened at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) on April 10th, 2022 where Jane Schoenbrun did a Q&A.[2][6]

On February 1st, 2023, FileSavingArchivistOfMovingImageThings, uploaded the whole documentary to the Internet Archive, including its three video resolutions that came from an archived download link of the film, rendering the entire documentary found.

A few days later, on February 7th, 2023, after learning about their documentary resurfacing, documentarian Jane Schoenbrun stated on their Twitter account that the film that the latter user archived was not the final cut of the film. Schoenbrun would later upload the finalized cut of the film on Vimeo available to be watched.[7][8]
