Ever since I did my review on the extraordinary documentary “Cropsey” back in June, I’ve gotten tons of e-mails asking when it will be released on DVD. Well, Fangoria magazine is reporting that it will be available on May 10th.
Breaking Glass Pictures revealed to Fango that CROPSEY will hit disc May 10 under the Vicious Circle Films banner. In the movie, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio revisit childhood legends they grew up with in Staten Island, NY concerning Cropsey, allegedly an escaped mental patient who lurked around the abandoned Willowbrook Mental Institution. More frightening than these myths, however, are the real-life disappearances of several children in the area, and Zeman and Brancaccio also investigate the case of Andre Rand, who was accused in the case—and the movie questions whether truth is more frightening than urban legend. The DVD will include 10 deleted scenes, including a further explanation of the Cropsey legend and additional explorations of the Willowbrook grounds, plus press clippings. See Breaking Glass’ new trailer below the art, our review of CROPSEY here and track back through exclusive video interviews with Zeman starting here.
This is definitely a film that leaves you wanting more, so I’m excited that this will be coming out on DVD with bonus features and deleted scenes. Be sure to check this film out. The DVD trailer is below.
