The Year In Review: 2017

And just like that, it’s 2018. The past year was a bit of a wild ride for the world, and unfortunately I didn’t get around to posting much on the blog, for a variety of reasons. I’m really not big on the whole “New Year’s Resolution” thing, but I really do need to make a […]

The Year in Review: 2015 – Part 3

Here in Part 3 (our final part), I’ll list our most popular stories from 2015, but only stories from 2015. Some older stories are still filling up high spots, including Thoughts on Grant Wilson Leaving TAPS/”Ghost Hunters” and Cropsey: Staten Island’s Boogeyman?, which are two of our most popular stories of all time.

The Year in Review: 2013 – Part 3

Happy New Year, readers! 2014 is here, and it’s time once again to look back at the previous year. I first did a “Year in Review” series back in 2012 (for 2011), but wasn’t able to do one last year. The demands of my job at the time were too great, and I was bogged […]

CROPSEY coming to DVD on May 10th

“Cropsey” now on Video On Demand/Pay-Per-View

Last month I reviewed the film “Cropsey,” which detailed the late 1970s and early 1980s child disappearances on Staten Island, NY and the suspect in the case, Andre Rand. The film’s press agent, Jason Klorfein, e-mailed me yesterday to let me know that the film is now available nationwide on Video On Demand, with such […]

Cropsey: Staten Island’s Boogeyman?

I first heard that a movie was being made about suspected Staten Island serial killer Andre Rand about 6 months ago. I had all but forgotten until I visited the Ghost Theory blog about 2 weeks ago, and they had the trailer posted. The movie is called “Cropsey,” and I was able to catch it this […]
