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.

It was a pretty good flick. It almost seemed like it was a true story. The end caught me off guard.
omg! twist basted i loved it
Definitely a triggering moment towards the end, but you can't watch a serial killer movie without expecting that. Rooker gave an extremely powerful performance almost to the point that yoj feel sorry for him. 5 skulls from me!
This based on Henry Lucas & Otis Toole?! Btw 5 skulls for me!👍🏽
God this movie is truly magnificent, but just in case anyone is going into this classic blind here are some trigger warnings (besides the obvious violence and blood): sexual assault (two scenes where it is explicit!), mentioned child abuse, and mention sex abuse. My fellow survivors, I love you, and please have a fun time watching this I just want y'all to have a heads up 💖
