Killer Legends Rise in July
On July 1st, 2014, Killer Legends is released. This documentary, directed by Joshua Zeman (Cropsey), investigates the famous urban legends of The Candyman, The Killer Clown, The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs, and The Hookman. The DVD will have an SRP of $19.99 and will include several special features.
From the press release:
Joshua and Rachel travel to Houston, Texas where they explore the tainted candy legend parents fear every Halloween. In Columbia, MO they compare The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs legend to the unsolved murder of Janett Christman - a babysitter found murdered in 1950. In Texarkana, Texas, the filmmakers investigate the real life case of a killer known as The Phantom and how it inspired "The Hook" urban legend. Joshua and Rachel then head to Chicago to answer the question of how clowns became so evil and creepy to the public.
Killer Legends director Joshua Zeman previously directed the critically acclaimed horror documentary Cropsey. "I'm excited to be working with Breaking Glass Pictures again. They helped me make Cropsey a creepy cult favorite and I'm looking forward to repeating the same success with Killer Legends."
Having enjoyed Cropsey, this one is immediately on my want list. Check out the trailer:
