Almost thirty years ago, Lee Haring and Mark Breslerman wrote an article called âThe Cropsey Maniacâ for "New York Folklore" (1977). Their subject was the development and meaning of a legendary character who had terrified campers at a number of different sleepaway camps in New York State. According to the Cropsey legend's usual plot line, Cropsey was a respected community member who lived near the camp with his son. When a couple of campers accidentally caused his son's tragic death, Cropsey went mad and swore that he would get revenge. Running off to hide in a shack in the woods, he waited until the anniversary of his son's death. Then he randomly chose a camper to attack with an axe. The unfortunate camper died instantly. If I were a counselor telling this story to a group of campers huddled around a campfire, I would end the story with its usual clincher: âCropsey is still out in these woods. Tonight is the anniversary of his son's death, and he may pay a visit to your bunk at midnight. Good luck!â
Does the Cropsey maniac still terrorize New York campers? Anyone who has access to the Internet will quickly learn that the answer to that question is âyes.â
I have mostly just been sticking to the well known stuff out there; not nearly as exciting, but there is still a lot of mainstream horror in my blind.
I am surprised myself at how pedantically I have kept up my own regiment of review writing
Dora attempts to unleash a "shock and awe" attack on the viewer,as Dora matches religious mumbling's with ruthless acts of aggression,which include the horrific killing of a cat (who gives the best performance in the whole film.)
It's like a vampire to a nubile virgin's neck :-)
Oh Lordy, wasn't the trailer for Exodus: Gods And Kings positively hideous? Moses as Thor! Whatever one thinks of Aronofsky's Noah at least he didn't try and turn Noah into into a Marvel superhero!
Glad that Gone Girl found favor with you. It's really top notch film making. My only complaint is its length. It seemed to go on forever but truth to tell, I couldn't think of anything they could have safely left on the cutting room floor.
