Movie Info

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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

All Critics (2)

Predictable and a bit sloppy on many levels, but occasionally effective, scary and somewhat intriguing.

...a fairly strong premise that is, for the most part, employed to pervasively underwhelming effect...

Audience Reviews for Cyrus: Mind Of A Serial Killer

Cinematography: 7/10 Usually fine, but sometimes too dark, or out of focus, or nearly mono color. Perhaps this was for artistic effect, but I find that irritating without any sort of recompense.

Sound: 8/10 Usually well done.

Acting: 7/10 Harris, Krause, and Henriksen were credible. The other actors were a full level less skilled. Krause still seems to be trying to break out of typecasting from his long stint on the television series Charmed. I liked his performance here, though, better than in some of his earlier bad guy horror film roles.

Screenplay: 8/10 Mosaic films can be awfully bad, but this one was well written, even if the content is disgusting. The flashbacks (the mother) and four interview streams (with Emmett, with the two medical experts, with the prison interviewees) are well meshed. The harsh ending makes sense once one gets there.


Predictable movie narrated by Lance Henriksen, a narration that really grates on your nerves after a while.


This was a fantastic movie. It had all the things I want in a horror movie: a good cast, a great bad guy with a twisted past, and a warped ending. The special effects were disturbingly realistic.
