If you are into true-crime horror or documentaries, then I’m betting that you have heard of Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio‘s film, Cropsey, at some point over the last year. In case you haven’t, the movie documents the real-world murders of several children that took place in Staten Island some years back. Using news reports and interviews with those involved with the case, it draws a parallel between the boogeymen of urban legends and campfire tales, and those that exist in our day-to-day reality.
I first saw the film back in March, and I absolutely loved it (you can read my review HERE). In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I hosted a screening of it in Buffalo a couple months ago, during it’s limited theatrical release there. The film has also gotten the thumbs-up from horror fans and film critics across the country, including the Blood Sprayer‘s own Kristy Jett (you can read her piece on the film HERE).
Now, it’s great when a good film gets the reviews that it deserves, but unfortunately, as is the case more and more often these days, some of the best new movies never get a proper theatrical release. This usually means that you have to wait until they hit home video before you get the chance to see them. In Cropsey‘s case, it has received some limited theatrical play, but the truth is that many of you out there who may want to see probably have not had the opportunity.
Well, if you’re one of those people who has been waiting to see it, I’m happy to inform you that, in addition to its limited theatrical run, Cropsey has been given a VOD run on cable! Even better, just about all major cable companies — including Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, and Brighthouse — are currently carrying the movie for you to view in the (dis)comfort of your own home!
The only catch is that the film is only available until Thursday, August 12.
With that said, what are you waiting for?! Turn down the lights, lock your doors, and order Cropsey now!
You can thank me later…
