Storyline

Four timeless urban legends continue to haunt the psyche of the American public. This documentary follows filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate the true crimes that may have spawned these urban legends, while exploring how these myths evolved and why we continue to believe. The documentary probes the following legends: The Candyman: The film travels viewers to Houston, Texas, to explore the legend of tainted candy that strikes fear in parents every Halloween. Though the legend is prolific, in actuality there is only one documented case of a child dying from tainted candy: 8-year-old Timothy O'Bryan. Timothy was poisoned on Halloween by a real life monster who used the legend to hide his crime, earning him the nickname, The Candyman. The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs: As the legend goes, a babysitter tormented by a twisted caller, learns that the sadistic calls are coming from inside the house. While the babysitter has become the go-to victim in so many of our... Written by Anonymous

Another fascinating and creepy documentary from the makers of Cropsey
6 October 2014 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

From the makers of Cropsey, Killer Legends shares the same kind of documentary format and subject matter as the filmmakers try to delve into some of the most popular urban legends out there. Much like Cropsey, the documentary has a lot of eerie atmosphere along with being a very informative documentary that makes it perfect for people interested in urban legends and true crimes.

Good: Like I said, the mood is really creepy. I like how they don't go over the top like other documentaries do dealing with this subject matter where they overdo the sound effects and visual effects. This documentary let the stories bring the creep factor and it works. Additionally, the research into some of the urban legends like the Hook Man, the Killer Clown, and the Babysitter Killer tales were fascinating and even provided new information that I didn't even know about.

Overall, it's a great true crime documentary along with being a great horror style documentary as well. Very creepy and informative.
