Trivia

Contrary to the statement on the poster, this film does not tell a true story. However director Mark Vadik claims that elements of the story are inspired by Fritz Haarmann, the "Butcher of Hanover" who terrorized boys and men in post-WWI Germany, a killer who was also the inspiration for M (1931) among other films.

Goofs

When Cyrus lights the fire to heat up the branding iron, the fire has only been lit for a couple of seconds before he removes the branding iron to use on the victims cheek. In reality the branding iron would need to stay in the fire a lot longer. See more »

some nasty moments
16 September 2014 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This flick isn't that bad but on the other hand isn't that good too. The good part lays in the way the killings were presented, the blood do run often and there are gory moments even as they are mostly done off-camera. The bad part is the way the film is presented. We do follow some reporters who wants to make a short on serial killers. By doing so they also interview specialists and it's that part that doesn't bring anything towards this flick.

It's even so that once another serial killer is being interviewed and one survivor this tears the believability of this flick down. You just want to know what is going on with the 3 girls and Cyrus the killer.

It do has two icons in the lead, Danielle Hariss as the reporter and Lance Henrikson as the person who wants to tell the story about Cyrus. It's rather weird to see Danielle playing a role being dressed up. Nevertheless, it do has Tiffany Shepis in it and that means nudity and I was rather surprised that it contained a few boob shots from almost all girls involved.

It's never frightening but it's worth picking up if you won't be bothered with the interference of the interviews.
