The film Cropsey is labeled as a horror/documentary and has two filmmakers as they try to uncover some of the most disturbing facts surrounding five missing children that were believed to be kidnapped and murdered by the local Staten Island boogie man named Aaron Rand.
Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio are those two filmmakers who grew up hearing the tales of Cropsey and how he was the escaped mental patient who lived in the old abandoned Willowbrook Mental Institution and during the dark desolate hours of night would search for children to get his grimy grips on.
In the documentary we see a very young Geraldo Rivera as he springs a surprise visit to Willowbrook after being informed by a staff member of the utterly horrible conditions these handicapped people are forced to live in. You see the actual heartbreaking footage of them naked and covered in feces- and you see a clip of Rand walking by.
Watching this you'll realize that the evidence wasn't overwhelming and some people really doubt he had anything to do with it, while others swear they know he did. You can try and base your own opinion on the whole matter but you'll teeter back and forth on whether you honestly think he did it, What if he didn't?
