Watch Killer Legends - Alternative Versions.
Delving into our collective nightmares, this horror-documentary
investigates the origins of our most terrifying urban legends and the
true stories that may have inspired them.
A few years ago, Joshua Zeman made "Cropsey", a punch in the gut
documentary that started as an examination of an urban legend and
turned into a full-scale exposure of something far worse. What many
would rather have us forget, Zeman brought to life: a mental facility
that was not doing its patients any good, to say the least.
This time he is back, examining not one but four urban legends and
finding what may just be the truth behind them (or, if nothing else,
real events that pushed the legends further into public consciousness).
The hook man, the candy poisoner, the babysitter and the killer clown.
Each is looked at in some detail (although limited by the film's
With the hook, we travel to Texarkana, find a little-known serial
killer who was never caught, and explain how fact and fiction were
blurred through the film "The Town That Dreaded Sundown". The fact the
city annually shows a film about the killer, who could have been alive
and attended a performance, is a bit disturbing. And how these
"Texarkana Moonlight Murders" are relatively obscure, even for serial
killer buffs, is a mystery in itself.
In the candy poisoner segment, we learn of the legend of candy
tampering, which is just that: a legend. Although circulating for one
hundred years, instances are so rare as to be virtually non-existent.
And then we have Ronald Clark O'Bryan, the man who took these legends
and used them to cover up his real crime... and legend becomes reality.
The babysitter story, with a killer being inside the house, is best
remembered as the plot for "When a Stranger Calls". Interestingly, we
find that babysitters are not likely targets -- perhaps even less
likely than the average person. But then the story takes a juicy turn,
when we learn of a serial rapist and murderer who preyed on
babysitters, and how a town's racial prejudice probably sent the wrong
man to prison. This story deserves its own documentary.
Lastly, the killer clown. Apparently there is an urban legend (not as
well known) of clowns that drive white vans and abduct children. And
while they circulate around Chicago, the story cannot be traced to the
obvious source of John Wayne Gacy (though he certainly intensified it).
Here we never quite get to the root, but along the way learn a great
deal about Chicago's history with clowns, which is interesting in
This film is every bit as good as "Cropsey", though it does suffer from
the format. From the short segments, we are left with one of two
impressions (or both): that these needed to be longer but could not be
because of running time, and that this was likely supposed to be an
ongoing series for Chiller that never came to be. One can easily
imagine Zeman traveling to a new town each week and getting to the
bottom of an unsolved mystery and an old legend, being the gruesome
counterpart to Jan Harold Brunvand.
And we hope he does make more.
