Cropsey Is Creepy 

New DVD release

Cropsey is a strange little documentary. Its creepy, ominous cover photo of an abandoned mental institution suggests its dark content. Filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, who grew up in Staten Island, tell the story of a series of child murders that took place there in 1987, committed by a boogeyman called "Cropsey."

The film is also a strange little documentary because it will leave you with more questions than answers. Even creepier than the crimes themselves is the story of Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, an institution near where the crimes took place. The film shows horrific footage of how patients there were treated until the school was closed--and the filmmakers suggest that the murders were a direct result of the cruelty practiced at the institution.
