Beware the Slenderman ★★★

The story of how two pre-teens, both of whom appear to be delusional and one of whom has been diagnosed as schizophrenic attempted to murder a friend of theirs believing that they are acting under the instructions of Slenderman.

The thing that lies at the heart of their delusion and what makes it so difficult to break is exactly the same thing that lies at the heart of religious beliefs and that is the inability of anyone to disprove the existence of something which does not exist in the first place.

These two children have never denied what they did and never tried to cover it up and yet they were held in adult facilities and will eventually stand trial as adults.

It's a crazy world out there.
