NEW RELEASE UPDATE: Killer Legends on DVD July 1st


Breaking Glass is putting out a documentary? And it's about urban legends! Now as an amateur Scooby, ghost hunter, Weird NJ freaker I love any story that "may have" been true and has become part of our collective consciousness. It brings the horror home. It makes it real. Just look at the recent Slenderman mythology peaking and apparently helping to propagate a new, horrible crime. 

These are the guys who brought you the Cropsey documentary, which should be enough to get you excited. 

 
Full release notes from Breaking Glass:

HORROR DOCUMENTARY
KILLER LEGENDS CREEPS ONTO DVD JULY 1, 2014

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 incredibly excited about bringing this film to fans of both urban legends and true crimes. I've always wanted to explore the two together, and Killer Legends was the perfect opportunity."
