Many people believe the scariest urban legends are just modern-day lore?campfire tales of axe-wielding boogeymen, haunted mental institutions and witches in the woods. These are often the plotlines of our favorite horror movies, but beneath the surface of these harrowing myths lie actual events that are scarier than any fiction. Through a chilling combination of investigative journalism and folklorist "legendtripping," filmmakers Joshua Zeman (director of CROPSEY) and Rachel Mills embark on a dark journey to investigate four of our most terrifying urban legends and the real-life crimes that may have inspired them. Peeling back the layers of storytelling through shocking interviews with both detectives and victims, the filmmakers discover truths more horrifying than they had ever imagined.
