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.

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….
