It’s Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer, out on DVD from Anchor Bay. Not to be confused with a certain comedy starring Jonah Hill. Please do not get them confused…you will probably be traumatized if you do. Anyway, here’s what they have to say for themselves:
Based on true events, and banned in six countries, the award-winning festival favorite, Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer is inspired by the lives and killings of such infamous serial killers as Fritz Haarmann, Henry Lee Lucas, and H.H. Holmes. Written and directed by Mark Vadik, Cyrus stars Danielle Harris (Halloween 4 & 5, Rob Zombie‘s Halloween 1 & 2, Hatchet 2) as Maria, host of a lurid tabloid show called “Last Steps.” With her cameraman Tom in tow, Maria investigates a series of unexplained disappearances in a small Midwestern county. The story leads them to the isolated town of Arkham Heights, where they find themselves interviewing Emmett (Lance Henriksen, Near Dark, The Terminator, Aliens), who possesses an all-too intimate knowledge of the details of “The County Line Cannibal” â€“ Cyrus (Brian Krause, “Charmed,” Growth, Sleepwalkers). As Emmett interweaves the macabre life tale of Cyrus with the story of the killer’s last three victims, Maria comes closer and closer to the greatest story of her life – or what’s left of it.
