Cropsey is a creepy documentary with all the elements of a horror film about a demented serial killer, and an extra ingredient: This one is real.

This disturbing true-crime documentary takes its name from a local bogeyman that video makers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio were warned about when they were growing up on Staten Island.

A documentary that delves into what happens when the ghost stories you told as kids, the stuff of urban legends, seem to come true.

The story of the unsolved abductions and the man who might have become the scapegoat for a community is troubling enough. No big-screen trickery is required.

Cropsey has all the trappings of a true-crime TV special, but with an undercurrent of cultural exposition that is intelligent, profound and unsettling.

Modern horror films rarely capture that pit-of-the-stomach feeling the way this movie does.

Perhaps most chilling is that the movie leaves the mysteries unresolved.

The core of the story is standard TV fare (and the techniques aren't exactly original), but the filmmakers tell it with wit, verve, and compassion.

Perched at the intersection of psychological survey and serial-killer exposť, "Cropsey" loosens the girdle of the documentary form to accommodate much more than facts.

...they've gone to great lengths to raise questions in the audience's mind about the [Rand] case. The answers they've found are questions, their conclusion, inconclusive.

On several levels, this film is a real-life horror story that puts most Hollywood movies to shame.

With tinkling thriller music and dramatic voiceover narration, this modest but engrossing first-person documentary comes on like a true crime caper.

The latest Cinema Purgatorio release is really a scary story told in the dark, in the get-this whisper of documentary.
