We caught wind this afternoon of a new indie horror film that stars Danielle Harris (of Halloween fame), Brian Krause, Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Doug Jones (Hellboy) and Rae Dawn Chong. From Moonstone Entertainment comes Mark Vadik’s CYRUIS, whcih is filled with reenacted documentary footage of forensic experts, serial killers, police authorities and survivors. It presents a simultaneously beautiful and horrific examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect leading to the creation of a serial killer. Read on for a synopsis and early art.
Inspired by a true story, a small independent news crew, made up of reporter Maria Consolo and her camera man Tom, 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 who possesses an all too intimate knowledge of the details of “The County Line Cannibal” – Cyrus. As Emmett inter-weaves the macabre life tale of the most prolific serial killer in the history of the United States with the story of Cyrus’ last three victims, Maria comes closer and closer to the greatest story of her life – or what’s left of it.
