Tonight (Feb. 17) at 9:30 pm EST Rue Morgue Magazine presents a screening of the documentary Cropsey as part of its monthly Cinemacabre night at The Bloor Cinema.

The film, by co-directors Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, traces the urban legend of Cropsey, supposedly an escaped mental patient responsible for the deaths of several mentally challenged children in Staten Island, New York. Zeman and Brancaccio focus on the arrest and prosecution of Andre Rand, a creepy drifter who was said to have killed Jennifer Schweiger, a child with Down’s Syndrome, in 1987. Other deaths lead officials to try to pin them on Rand, but did he do it?

Rue Morgue will be conducting an interview with Zeman via Skype after the film.
