Reviewers weigh in on HBO Slenderman film
HBO's documentary film based on the Waukesha Slender Man stabbing case aired on Monday, and the reviews have been appearing all week.Comment: We watched the HBO documentary this week. We had previously viewed a 20/20 documentary on the case and of course have followed the case in the print news. WIKI provides a summary of the case. Here's my take:
- The Blaise Pascal quote speaks to this: "There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus"
- The are true and false myths - myth meaning supernatural-sacred story
- Parents must instruct their children in true myths else the vacuum will filled with evil
- Evil myths spawn monsters
