Urban Legends, as scary as they may be are really just warnings for something much more dangerous, the reality that started it all. Every town has it's Legends and every neighborhood has it's Boogeymen. Breaking Glass Pictures and director Joshua Zeman bring to us the real life Horror documentary KILLER LEGENDS. Zeman, along with his fellow filmmaker Rachel Mills go on a quest to uncover the truth about Urban Legends. The documentary is coming in July and we have the trailer and more info waiting for you all down below.
"The chilling documentary Killer Legends will be available on DVD nationwide July 1, 2014. Killer Legends follows filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate four timeless legends that continue to haunt the American public. Directed by Joshua Zeman, the documentary examines the urban legends of The Candyman, The Killer Clown, The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs, and The Hookman. The DVD release (SRP $19.99) will also include seven special features on the urban legends.
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.”
KILLER LEGENDS will be available on DVD JULY 1, 2014.
