Editorial Reviews

Ambitious television reporter Maria Sanchez (Danielle Harris of Rob Zombie's Halloween, Hatchet 2) is investigating the disappearance of over 200 Midwestern University students when a local man (Lance Henriksen of Aliens) contacts her with information that reveals details of the serial killer and his crimes: His name is Cyrus (a chilling performance by Brian Krause of ''Charmed'') and the murders themselves were brutal. What happened next was horrific but the worst is still to come. Based on shocking true events, this bloody and brutal story of the 'The County Line Cannibal' will leave a taste in your mouth that you'll never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Love To Be Scared July 9, 2011
Format:DVD
For those of you who love to be scared, this is just the ticket. From the very beginning this movie draws you into its world. Everything is believable. This is a documentary, and a special one. This documentary "tells" about Cyrus, while we see what is really happening in the world of Cyrus. And it ain't pretty. I have to agree with others who have written before me. Lance Henriksen lends such dignity and simplicity to his story telling, that his commentary becomes almost soothing, reasonable, and absolutely true.

From a woman's point of view, there were scenes I just couldn't watch. But Cyrus didn't wield his particular justice just to women, men had to suffer too. One of the highlights of the film was the soundtrack. It was fantastic. From agonizing screams and doomsday percussions, to lovely, haunting melodies, and all genres of music, the film score alone will have you on the edge of your chair. Don't miss this movie. The acting is truly perfection, including a little puppy who played his part with sensitivity. You will not be bored. The end of the movie offers some thought provoking messages. All in all, I enjoyed this movie totally. Go see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Surprise Ever March 31, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My husband and I rented this movie to see how it was. We are big fans of anything serial killer plus lots of blood and gore. We didn't know what to expect with this movie but we were pleasantly surprised. This movie was great!! There is a psychological thriller going on while at the same time there is plenty of blood and violence. I'm not going to give the end away, but there is even a twist at the end, we didn't see it coming from a mile away.

On the negative side, this movie was done on a low end budget and you can tell in some of the effects but they are still very effective. Also, the premise is a little unrealistic but just go along for the ride and you will enjoy this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars GRISLY TALE July 25, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie has a lot going for it so why do I find myself not totally liking it? CYRUS is supposedly based on "true events" but I don't remember anything in the news or the multiple t.v. Shows like FORENSIC FILES or 48 HOURS MYSTERY.
But as a movie, CYRUS is brutal, manipulative and confusing.
Danielle Harris plays an investigative tv reporter who thinks she's gotten the story of a lifetime when a mysterious recluse (Lance Henriksen) says he knows the identity of a notorious serial killer responsible for the murders/disappearances of over 200 women. He narrates the tale of Cyrus, a disturbed man with a dysfunctional past and recounts specifically the story of three doomed women. The film also uses taped interviews with various people on what makes serial killers tick.
Brian Krause plays Cyrus with a nonchalant brutality which makes his performance even more chilling. Henricksen's quite good in evincing almost a quiet admiration of this psychopath. Of course, we know from the beginning where the movie is heading, thus hindering much chance for true suspense.
So ultimately we end up with a lot of violence and boobs, but no real understanding of what we've experienced. That may be why it left me wanting something more.

3.0 out of 5 stars I didn't mind it June 12, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kind of predictable but not too bad. Lots of things are just too dragged out. Brian Krause is pretty good as the killer but sometimes the killer playing cat and mouse for too long gets tedious which it did here. We have Danielle Harris Interviewing possibly the only witness to a series of unsolved murders. She is annoying as all hell and you hope she comes to a bad end. If you have some time to kill, no pun intended, you can watch this but don't expect too much. Really predictable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brian Krause Fans October 1, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is mostly for Brian Krause fans who is best known for his role as Leo on tv's "Charmed". The movie allowed us to see a different side of Brian Krause in his chilling performance as Cyrus, though I think Danielle Harris performance was a little over the top at the end of the movie when she's usually a great actress.

Short version of the movie? Never underestimate a quiet man. Sometimes the quiet ones are the most deadliest.

3.0 out of 5 stars And I thought "Cyrus" was unwatchable August 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
What is it with filmmakers, anyways, at least when it comes to movies whose titles start with "Cyrus"? While I'm a big fan of Marissa Tomei -- she's been treated beyond unfairly by almost everyone (I have my theories that I've shared ad nauseum already) -- I found that that film was almost unwatchable, due to the subject matter that nearly made my skin crawl. That film was dark comedy while "Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer" was, well. . . . dark comedy?

A common trick with directors and screenwriters is to make all of the secondary characters so unsympathetic that, even if the main character is totally psycho, the audience will believe that all of those secondary characters deserve what they get. And this film tries that overly-used-and-let's-get-rid-of-it-already idea, and that is one of the biggest failures of this film. Here, it just doesn't quite work, because the antihero's behavior is just so reprehensible that, no matter how much the other characters might deserve the worst that mankind has to offer, you still can't root for the guy.

But there is even a bigger problem. I have read quite a bit of true crime, and at this point I have to admit, there is so much stranger-than-fiction reality out there, I say, "Why even have fictionalized based-on-true-events movies such as this?" I had to peek around the web, and supposedly this was "based upon" some European serial killer from long ago -- even though they didn't call them "serial killers" at the time -- that supposedly killed around 30 people or so. But his murders, MO, and victims were so different than those represented here that this film seems to lose almost all meaning, moral, or theme.

Ah, back to Marissa Tomei.
