Win Urban Myth doc “KILLER LEGENDS” On DVD!
Following CROPSEY, Joshua Zeman teamed with filmmaker Rachel Mills for another real life exploration into urban legends. The omnibus doc of sorts, entitled KILLER LEGENDS, crossed the country in search of hard truths behind nightmarish myths. Having premiered on Chiller TV this past spring, KILLER LEGENDS is coming to DVD in July and Fango’s got a copy for you!
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.
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.
