Abacus sells a slate of documentaries from Award-Winning Producer Peninsula Television
Woodcut Media and leading distributor Abacus Media Rights (AMR), an Amcomri Entertainment Inc Company, confirm another Prime Video documentary feature Confessions of A Psycho Killer scheduled to launch next month in the UK and Ireland on February 1st.
Produced by Woodcut Media and distributed outside of the UK by Abacus Media Rights, this 90-minute film follows on from the recently announced doc ‘The Murder of Meredith’ (which premiered November 2022), and marks a second documentary with Prime Video brokered by AMR.
Confessions of a Psycho Killer is a highly stylised feature documentary. It takes viewers back to 1975 when the body of 63 year old Vicar, Anthony Crean was found in a quiet Kent village, leaving a community in shock when they discovered he had been killed in a frenzied attack with an axe. One detective was convinced the killer was a criminal named Patrick Mackay, and when the 22 year old was eventually brought in for questioning, he proceeded to confess to the murder. But what was even more disturbing was that they soon discovered this serial killer’s reign of terror also spread outside of Kent and into London. What followed was a series of police interviews and confessions which would leave investigators stunned.
Confessions of a Psycho Killer is produced by Woodcut Media’s Nick Mavroidakis and directed by Matt Blyth, with Kate Beal as executive producer.
Jonathan Ford, Managing Director at Abacus Media Rights said: “We are very pleased to once again be working with one of the leaders in factual programming in the UK and to work again with Prime Video. True crime at its best, this is an exceptionally chilling documentary from Woodcut Media which we are sure will captivate audiences around the world.”
