Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer

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.

This controversial horror classic follows a serial killer and his partner-in-crime.

I've read a few reviews below that said they downvoted the film because of how disturbing it was. I think that should elevate it. For a film that was made over 30 years ago, it is still extremely disturbing and haunting. Michael Rooker gives a subtle but mesmerizing performance as Henry.

Kind of hard to watch very gritty. A little too close to reality

Watch Angst (1983) instead if you have the option, for this was dull and cheesy.
