Woodcut Media and Abacus Media Rights (AMR) confirm 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 produced by Woodcut Media’s Nick Mavroidakis and directed by Matt Blyth, with Kate Beal as executive producer. 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.

Matt Blyth, Series Director and Co-Founder, Woodcut Media commented: “Mackay is the UK’s forgotten serial killer and it’s extraordinary that people rarely hear his name. His confessions that ultimately led to his imprisonment are truly shocking, and reveal a cold-hearted killer devoid of remorse or empathy. Making this documentary has been an eye-opening experience, knowing that one day soon Mackay could be released from prison puts an entirely different perspective on this historic crime story.”

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."
