Cropsey…He's Real

A documentary recently came to my attention that simply blew my mind, and I assumed might many of you as well, but I held off on reporting it, because I was sure–sure–someone else would get to it, probably right as I was typing mine up. It just seemed like such a given! Well, some days have gone by, and nothing. So it is my duty to report to you the existence of Cropsey, a film that dares to ask, what if your urban legends were real?

Brought to us by the team of  Joshua Zeman & Barbara Brancaccio, Cropsey delves into a tragedy from their mutual childhoods, the disappearances of seven local Staten Island children….and the perpetrator’s possible connection to the decades-old campfire story of Cropsey, which ispired films such as The Burning, and Madman.

If you head over to, you can sign up for the flick’s newsletter, and you can dig the official trailer by clicking the handy link below….

Currently part of the lineup at the Tribeca Film Festival, Cropsey looks to be a chilling and intriguing cross between The Burning and Blair Witch Project, and I for one can’t wait for it.

Now if someone could just make a Bloody Mary documentary….

  1. I wanted to write about this but never got around to it, good thing too as I like your angle better!

  2. I can’t believe it! I somehow just got around to watching both Madman and The Burning for the first time recently and I thought they seemed a bit similar (aside from the fact that both feature characters using the phrase “for the rest of your life” which should not be uttered in a slasher flick.) Thanks for the info! Love the site btw, long time reader, first time commenter blah blah blah.

  3. This looks really interesting. I’ve always been fascinated by the Cropsey legend and look forward to seeing this movie.

  4. hi go to movie2k to watch Cropsey it is free good movie :D
