    I was underwhelmed by Cropsey.  It was a divertingly interesting story while the movie was going, but it ultimately offered little in the way of a substantial message, and no closure (for the case nor the movie), so in the end it was kind of forgettable.

    Maybe it’s just my own hang-up, but whenever documentary filmmakers try to shoehorn themselves into their movie I always interpret it as unnecessary and arrogant (unless the subject somehow draws them in incidentally).  Michael Moore’s films are the obvious extreme of this…In the case of Cropsey, I do understand that the filmmakers personal insights from growing up on Staten Island are valuable to the subject matter, but I thought that their trips into the woods to explore the crime scenes and the abandoned institution at night came off as cheap filler and diverted from the real story, which was presented as more as kind of a sad true crime mystery than the horror story that those scenes would be more appropriate for.

    In closing: I love Kinderbitz!  (That mini-rant got a way from me a little, sorry.)

    Thanks for your input! I thought the most horrifying aspect of Cropsey was the Geraldo Rivera footage. I’m glad that it is being seen by a new generation that missed it because I think it is still important. That’s why I appreciated Pax’s take a great deal considering his own personal experience. When CROPSEY puts on the Blair Witch hat is does come across as borderline exploitive considering the subject matter. I still think it should be seen and that the filmmaker’s attempt to separate the legend from the brutal reality is interesting but I agree with you that there is a loss of focus in the name of making something more “entertaining”.

    I went and read Pax’s review of Cropsey and I feel like his opinion seems to be in the majority of what I’ve read. Too bad, I’m still intrigued though and will probably see it.

    I actually remember those clips of Willowbrook, although I was only one when they shot it, I remember catching something about the hospital on 60 Minutes or something sometime later. My parents both worked in the mental health industry back then and before we moved to Vegas, they worked at Camarillo State Hospital, which had 10,000 patients. My father (who was smaller than me) actually worked the violent ward. I do believe the hospital was much better run and the patients were taken care of as well, but I heard a couple of horror stories.

    Someone should really make a doc on when they turned all those people out during the 80s. I remember it was really controversial and many of the patients had nowhere to go and became homeless.

    OK, that was my tangent! 😛 Sorry!

    They do talk about how the patients were jettisoned from Willowbrook in the 80’s for a bit and then they move on. I think that the better doc was right there but they didn’t follow the thread. A “serial killer” movie is much more appealing even when there’s no concrete evidence that the guy in question actually is one. I hate to bitch, because I do think it is a worthwhile doc to see but I will also add that I hate the whole “Satanic sacrifice” element they toy with because that particular “urban legend” has done such incredible damage in this country.

    Personally, I find this more fascinating than Cropsey:
