After years and years of being tied up in a legal battle over release rights, My Name Is A By Anonymous is finally getting a release, and to go along with the glorious news, it’s gotten itself a new title as well.
Look for Alyssa: Portrait of a Teen Killer on DVD September 27, 2014, courtesy of Wild Eye Releasing.
Even cooler? The DVD includes two additional cuts of the film. Snazzy!
Shane Ryan directs the flick, which was produced by Ryan Nicholson (Live Feed, Hanger, Gutterballs) along with Alisha Rayne and actor Kevin Gage (Michael Mann’s Laid to Rest, May, Heat). Katie Marsh, Demi Baumann, Teona Dolnikova, Alex Damiano, and Kaliya Skye star.
Told through a blend of found footage, documentary style first-person, and classical cinematography, the film is the inspired-by-true-story of Alyssa Bustamante, the 15-year-old girl accused of stabbing, strangling, and slicing the throat of her 9-year-old neighbor in what news and court case described as a “thrill killing.” The film, which has left festival crowds “haunted” and “shaken” and been hailed by critics as a “brutal, heartbreaking masterpiece…,” recently completed its festival run and won numerous awards including “Best Art House Film” at the Pollygrind Film Festival.
