Is Siren Head Real? Know about the Internet Famous Monster
Siren Head is an internet sensation. The monster first appeared in popular internet culture in 2018 and, since then, has become a subject of endless discussion among people fascinated by the supernatural. But, does this monster actually exist?
Siren Head — A Brief Introduction
Internet is rife with information of all sorts about Siren Head. Here’s a brief rundown of all the interesting facts you need to know about this infamous supernatural internet celebrity monster.
Siren Head first appeared on the internet in 2018. Trevor Henderson, or Slimyswampghost as he’s known on social media, is the creator of this cryptid, as he is of many other scary characters like 'Cartoon Cat,' 'Long Horse,' 'The Man In The Red Room,' etc.
Henderson’s first-ever post about Siren Head came on August 19, 2018, on Tumblr. In the post, the horror artist included a picture of the monster, with a description that depicts a scenario where a couple encounters the beast.
She was on vacation with her husband and they were scoping out graveyards on the way, as you do, when she saw it. Rising out of the old cemetery, big as an old (macabre) telephone pole. Was this some kind of bizarre art piece the authorities hadn’t gotten wise to yet? Even as she stepped out of the car, the megaphones on it’s “head” screeched to life. “NINE. EIGHTEEN. ONE. CHILD. SEVENTEEN. REMOVE. VILE.”. A buzzing, doubled voice screamed random words at her. At this point, it jerked into motion, striding down the hill towards her.
The name is a dead giveaway as to what this monster might look like. Siren Head is a part-machine, part-human monster. The part that is machine is its head, which is, in the majority of its internet iterations, made up of two sirens or horns and wires.

These are wired to its body with ‘dry and mummified skin.’ It is considered to be Henderson’s largest creation, both literally and figuratively. Literally in the sense that it is supposed to be around 40 feet tall, and figuratively because of its widespread infamy.
Due to its supernatural nature, according to Henderson, Siren Head does not need eyes, ears, and nose to hunt. It is almost completely silent in its movement but produces weird noises through its horns when it wants to.
Since its emergence, Siren Head has found its way into considerable cultural significance within a short amount of time. Many YouTubers, such as PewDiePie and Jacksepticeye have talked about it, and it also became a part of the Fallout 4 video game’s modified version in late 2019.
Is Siren Head Real?
Well, we're not sure. While Siren Head, the particular monster that we have been talking about, is a piece of fiction, it seems like Henderson definitely took inspiration from old urban myths and reportedly strange happenings.
The artist himself has shared a few hints about what he might have taken inspiration from for one of his most famous art concepts.
On his Twitter page, there’s a compilation of tweets he has made over the years about Siren Head. These tweets range from fan arts to suspect theories and alleged appearances of Siren Head in real life.
In one of these tweets, strange cases of people hearing weird noises and then disappearing have been mentioned, ranging from 1978 to 1992. One can find more recent cases in his other tweets.
However, is there actually a Siren Head out there? None of these tweets definitively prove anything about its existence. But, as they say, absence of evidence doesn’t necessarily mean evidence of absence.
