Product Details


Winner of 2013 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Nonfiction

“A well-written and researched exploration of a very dark side of a young would-be filmmaker who is perhaps a tad over-influenced in his life and actions by the fictional TV character, serial killer Dexter Morgan. The horrific crimes and the trial of Edmontonian Mark Twitchell is deftly presented by Steve Lillebuen in a book that is a well-paced, hard-to-put-down, real-life thriller.”
—Jury citation for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Non-fiction

“A compelling and frightening account. . . . Lillebuen creates a fascinating and detailed narrative, from the killer’s and victim’s early lives to the dramatic and bizarre courtroom trial. With its ties to online communities, dating sites, pop culture and modern filmmaking, The Devil’s Cinema is a terrifying and intriguing account of murder in the digital age.” 
Winnipeg Free Press

“Remind[s] us how the borders of human interaction and connective technology have shifted so drastically, and in so little time. . . . “
