Controversial My Name is A By Anonymous to Finally be Released

After three years of controversy and legal battles, Shane Ryan's long-awaited, critically-acclaimed My Name Is A By Anonymous is set for home video release. The award-winning true crime film will come to DVD on September 23rd, and soon after will be available on VOD and PPV under the title Alyssa: Portrait of a Teen Killer, courtesy of Wild Eye Releasing and MVD Entertainment Group.

Over two hours of bonus materials fill out the DVD, and include two alternate cuts of the film, short
films, deleted scenes, trailers, music videos, and more.

Based on real-life teenage 'Thrill Killer' Alyssa Bustamante, who gained instant worldwide fame when she murdered her younger neighbor in 2009, My Name is A By Anonymous, which The London Film Review called "Bold Daring, disturbing and heartbreaking" is directed by Shane Ryan (the Amateur Porn Star Killer series). Producers include Ryan Nicholson (Live Feed, Hanger) and Kevin Gage (Laid to Rest, May, Heat). Katie Marsh, Demi Baumann, Alex Damiano, Kaliya Skye and Russian pop star Teona Dolnikova (formerly of the band Slot),  star in the film, which has left festival crowds around the world "haunted" and "shaken" and has been universally hailed by critics for its uncompromising, raw style. 

Inspired by real events. The search for a missing girl exposes a dark world of lost and emotionally unstable teenagers who are responsible for the girl's disappearance and eventual murder. A disturbing, fascinating portrait of the alienation and despair found in teens who have been left to fend for their own purpose. My Name is A By Anonymous is based on the true crime of Alyssa Bustamante, the 15 year old convicted and currently serving a life sentence for the 'Thrill-killing' of her neighbor Elizabeth Olten in 2009.
