VAULT EXCLUSIVE: Interview with the Directors of Cropsey!

Covered recently here in The Vault, Cropsey is a film about the northeastern urban legend of an axe-wielding maniac, and how it ties into the very real crimes of a Staten Island child molester. It is sure to be a darling of New York's Tribeca Film Festival, once it debuts there on Saturday.

Cropsey's two directors, Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, were kind enough to give me some of their time to talk about their unique documentary film. As someone who grew up in New York and is very familiar with the original Cropsey legend, I was pleased to have the opportunity to discuss the picture, and the directors' reasons for making.

For anyone who's ever wondered if local urban legends ever have a basis in reality, I urge you to check out my 20-minute Vaultcast interview...

Special thanks to Janice Roland of Falco Ink for making this interview possible.

Great interview. I'm keen to see the film.

Of course, Tony Maylem's "The Burning" ('81) has a campfire scene where 'Cropsy' (spelt with no 'e' in the credits) is referred to.

Then he spends the entire film killing.

I wonder if the 'e' was omitted deliberately?

It was shot in New York State.

Planet, thanks for the compliment! I'd be happy to link to you.
And Phantom, we briefly touched on the connection to The Burning in the interview.
