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.

"One of the most well-regarded horror films of all time"? Now that's a bit of an exaggeration. Honestly, I'[m so bored I'm turning it off a third of the way through.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I felt uneasy while watching. I usually feel nothing, but this movie was very good. It was supposed to make you feel uneasy and it definitely hit the mark!!
This isn't a very faithful adaptation of Henry Lee Lucas's crimes, but Michael Rooker gives one of the best performances ever and MAKES this movie a must see.
