“A detailed, well-constructed account of a diabolical real-life Dexter. Lillebuen has written a riveting, true crime page-turner about aspiring filmmaker Mark Twitchell, who turned his obsession with fantasy into horrible reality.”
—Robert Remington, co-author of Runaway Devil: How Forbidden Love Drove a 12-year-old to Murder Her Family
“The Devil’s Cinema uses police reports, news coverage, social media and interviews with those involved -- including Twitchell himself -- to create a compelling and frightening account of the crime. . . . Lillebuen takes readers deep inside the mind of this creative pathological liar who blurred the lines between fantasy and reality. The author 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
“Based on reams of first-person interviews, newspaper reports and court documents, The Devil’s Cinema is a meticulous reconstruction of Mark Twitchell’s Dexter-worthy shenanigans. . . . [The book is an] admirably structured, thoroughly readable parsing of a psychopathic mind.”
“Show[s] how Twitchell went from a husband and father working sales jobs to the prime suspect in an outrageous murder case.”
“Lillebuen does an admirable job in pulling together a story that has more real-life twists and turns than anything famed director Alfred Hitchcock could have applied to the silver screen. Truth is, indeed, always stranger than fiction.”
“Remind[s] us how the borders of human interaction and connective technology have shifted so drastically, and in so little time.”
