Killer Legends Documentary Comes Creeping onto DVD July 1stThis year’s crop of fictional horror films has been pretty disappointing so far, but maybe the documentary Killer Legends, available on DVD nationwide July 1st from Breaking Glass Pictures, can add some chill to our hot summer months.

Killer Legends follows filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate four timeless legends that continue to haunt the American public. Directed by Zeman, the documentary examines the urban legends of The Candyman, The Killer Clown, The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs, and The Hookman.

The DVD release (SRP $19.99) will also include seven special features on the legendary quartet.

Joshua and Rachel travel to Houston, Texas, where they explore the tainted candy legend parents fear every Halloween. In Columbia, Missouri, they compare The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs legend to the unsolved murder of Janett Christman – a babysitter found murdered in 1950. In Texarkana, Texas, the filmmakers investigate the real-life case of a killer known as The Phantom and how it inspired “The Hook” urban legend. The pair then head to Chicago to answer the question of how clowns became so evil and spooky to the public.

Zeman previously directed the critically acclaimed horror documentary Cropsey and said of the upcoming release, “I’m excited to be working with Breaking Glass Pictures again. They helped me make Cropsey a creepy cult favorite, and I’m looking forward to repeating the same success with Killer Legends.”

Killer Legends was produced by Gulp Pictures and Storyville Entertainment in association with Gigantic Pictures. It premiered on March 16th on the Chiller Network.

Synopsis:
Many people believe the scariest urban legends are just modern day folklore, campfire tales of axe-wielding boogeymen, haunted mental institutions, and witches in the woods — the storylines of our favorite horror movies, but often beneath the surface of these harrowing myths lies a horrific truth that’s scarier than any fiction.

Through a chilling blend of investigative journalism and what folklorists call Legendtripping, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills embark on a dark journey as they investigate four of our most terrifying urban legends and the real-life crimes that may have inspired them. Peeling back the layers of storytelling, from interviews with shocked detectives to traumatized victims, our filmmakers discover a truth more horrifying than they had ever imagined. Unraveling the mystery behind a legacy that refuses to die, this is an attempt to understand not just what we all fear, but more importantly… why we continue to believe.

Special Features:
-Hook: Phantom Revealed (1:10)
-Making Connections (3:59)
-A Cautionary Tale (2:53)
-Babysitter: Close Call (1:47)
-Clowns: Sinister Suburbs (1:52)
-Family Affair (5:11)
-Candyman: Finger Pointing (1:33)

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!
