The last couple of weeks have seen the launch of Drawlloween.com, complete with a 2015 calendar of topics for the drawing challenge we first told you about last year. However, Drawlloween.com (and its associated Instagram account) seem to be the work of yet another person (not one of the two credited with likely having originated the name/idea), and the website (such as it is) appears to be pretty much dedicated to the owner’s artwork, so this could be the first of multiple Drawlloween topic calendars this year…

“Killer Legends” Tackles the Myth of Poisoned Halloween Candy

  • Posted : May 12th, 2015
  • Comments: 0

Cropsey” documentarian Joshua Zeman has released a new documentary called “Killer Legends” in which he investigates 4 classic urban legends: The Hook Hand Killer, The Babysitter Killer, the Killer Clown and the Candy Man, i.e., the idea the people tamper with candy on Halloween.

Zeman examines the events that turned trick or treating in America into something genuinely scary; what he discovers is fascinating and ultimately proves what we here at the Cult of the Great Pumpkin already knew from our own research. In the interest of not spoiling it, however, we’ll keep that info to ourselves and let you watch and see.

“Killer Legends” is now available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon and directly via http://killerlegends.vhx.tv/.
