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.

Very disturbing how nonchalant Henry and Otis are. They act as if everyone is a killer, just that nobody talks about it. I found the background story of Henry and Becky sad. It seemed necessary to humanize Henry, despite his clear lack of humanity. A scary and cold film.
Title says it all.
God I love this movie. How is Mr. Rooker that fucking good. The acting in this is sooo great all the wat around though. I love the gritty look and feel to this movie.It definitely is not a movie for the faint of heart. This is some seriously disturbing and horrifying stuff. This movie gets to me in a way that most dont. What a gem.
Dark, gritty and doesn’t pull any punches. Rooker is genuinely frightening. Loved it 👍🏻
