It tells of a boogeyman urban legend turned real life serial child-killer found within an abandoned mental institute on Staten Island.
Revealed mostly through lo-fi camera-work, old news footage and talking heads, the film gets increasingly more frightening and upsetting with each new discovery the film-makers stumble upon. It goes into all sorts of mass hysteria conjured up by the community making it one of the most difficult and controversial cases to go to court, reminding me of The West Memphis Three. A thoroughly fascinating watch but nothing I really ever want to think of or see again.
