KILLER LEGENDS [2014]

After stumbling upon Cropsey in his previous film, documentarian Joshua Zeman further explores other frightening urban myths in Killer Legends.
The man with the hook, the baby-sitter slaughterer, the Halloween candy killer and homicidal clowns are all under investigation here.  We get to find out their originations, what inspired them and what was inspired by them, all told with an eerie chill.  So much, that at first it feels like a cheap melodramatic Strange Mysteries reality show until they get into some really unsettling facts that are just plain creepsome.  Quite a bit of it is stuff the season horror buff will already know but it features enough little tidbits of scary info to keep it interesting and entertaining anyway.
