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.

Finally got around to watching this, and I definitely see why it’s so popular. It’s gritty and disturbing. Obviously, it’s very loosely based on Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole. But I’m glad they kept the mentor sort of situation, as you rarely see that in serial killer movies.
Sleazy, entertaining, fun! I loved the dialogue.
Literally the most boring movie I’ve ever seen. It wasn’t a “look at the mind of a serial killer” it was a guy showed killing a lot of people randomly. We didn’t see his thoughts or emotions or anything and the plot line is so bad and has no character development that I really didn’t give a fuck about any of the characters. I wanted to keep hitting the skip button just to get it over with bc nothing interesting ever happened
