Overview

A television reporter gets the lead of a lifetime while investigating the case of a mysterious, Midwestern serial killer in this brutal horror yarn inspired by actual events. Shortly after learning that more than 200 college students have gone missing in a rural area of the American Midwest, Maria Sanchez (Danielle Harris) receives a call from a man (Lance Henriksen) who claims to have personally known the man responsible for killing them. As the soft-spoken stranger speaks of sadism, cannibalism, and irrepressible bloodlust, the terrifying story of Cyrus (Brian Krause) slowly comes into focus. And with each new detail of his heinous crimes, the reporter's dread continues to grow. A quiet man who once married a beautiful woman, Cyrus snapped when he caught his wife with another man. From that day forward, nothing could stop the beast inside. Tiffany Shepis, Rae Dawn Chong, and Doug Jones co-star.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Without the hindrance of fiscally obsessed studio executives the filmmaker is afforded greater latitude in presenting his vision of this darkest aspect of the human contention. One of the movies of this sort I recent watch exemplified this; 'Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer'. It is a sullen almost depressing look at a man obsessed with taking human lives. The titular Cyrus here, remarkably well presented by former 'Charmed' hero Brian Krause is compelled to stalk and murder young women. Every serial killer worth his salt requires a suitably horrific no de voyage and the local press came up with a sensationalistic one for Cyrus; 'County Line Cannibal'. It's got alliteration and references a taboo act so it was certain to rapidly catch on. One reporter out to cover the murder spree is Maria Sanchez (Danielle Harris) hoping to scope the competition with an angle unavailable to her competition. Maria comes cross Emmett (Lance Henriksen), an odd man claiming to be a friend of the serial killer. Despite the potential for personal danger this approach on the story is far too seductive for the young reporter to pass. In what has become mandatory for the genre the story is allegedly based on actual facts although I cannot discern any particular Modus operandi attributable to a specific killer. Most likely Cyrus' methodology is culled from a mélange of murders. In any case the lack of veracity does not diminish the emotional and visceral effect of the movie. What follows is a tightly crafted film that balances the visceral gore devotees of horror now expect with a deeply disturbing psychological thriller that is gripping in the way it seeps into your consciousness as you watch. It turns out the nursery rhyme opening was the news segment Maria is preparing in hopes of making it into prime time. This has another more subtle effect, keeping the audience off balance unable to fully trust what they see. This allows the mind to take over part of the job of fright; something far more effective than any display of blood and guts. This film will surprise you in just how effective it is as a scary movie for a dark and stormy night's entertainment.
