Cropsey is an investigative horror-documentary film that delves into the mysterious disappearances of five children and the real-life boogeyman linked to them. Written and directed by Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, the film examines a legend from their childhoods that has eerily come true.

The term “Cropsey” originated from an urban legend of New York. At the time of the kidnappings depicted in the documentary, it was used to describe any psychotically violent criminal. As such, it became part of everyday vernacular to frighten children and eventually evolved to refer to a particular individual rather than an archetype.

At its core, Cropsey tells a chilling tale of Andre Rand, a convicted child killer from Staten Island. The film follows Zeman and Brancaccio as they investigate Rand’s past in order to uncover what really happened to the missing children. It’s one part crime-investigation story and one part horror story, making for an unnerving yet fascinating exploration into this relentless urban legend.

Viewers who are looking for something equally suspenseful and informative should definitely give Cropsey a watch. This documentary puts together years’ worth of evidence in an effort to tell this spine-chilling story about justice served not only for those lost but also for all who seek closure for these unfortunate events in history.
