Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer
Directed by John McNaughton
This controversial horror classic follows a serial killer and his partner-in-crime as they slowly begin to kill for fun. Michael Rooker is unforgettable as Henry, a soft-spoken loner masking an inner rage. When fellow ex-con Otis invites Henry to move into his apartment, he becomes Henry's wicked wing man. Meanwhile, Otis' unsuspecting sister Becky develops a childish crush on Henry. It took years - and the championing of Roger Ebert - who thought the film was powerful and brilliant - to turn HENRY into one of the most well-regarded horror films of all time.

Cast: Michael Rooker, Tom Towles, Tracy Arnold
To be expected, lots of killing. Not as much depth as I would have liked given the title of the movie. The ending is predictable but still disturbing.
Interesting movie, very sick
Its an interesting movie. Its more a true crime sort of thing, but it definitely is a good examination of a serial killer mind.
AMAZING movie! must watch!!
A classic...I have the special release dvd and one interveiw struck me in praticular. One of the crew doubled as Mr. Rookers driver. She said in the morning she picked Michael Rooker a nice,polite and funny man. By the time they arrived on set she was dropping off Henry and was happy to have him out of the car. That is method acting folks...top knotch performace.
