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.

Cast: Michael Rooker, Tom Towles, Tracy Arnold
An absolutely fascinating and artistic take on a slasher; it feels so much deeper, so much smarter then any other slasher I’ve ever seen. I love slashers, but they don’t hardly ever feel thrilling, and I almost never care about the characters, really. This is thrilling, with likable characters, disturbing scenes, an incredible score, that all put together just makes your skin crawl.
disturbing, yet meaningful
Great movie! Definitely kept me on my seat!
A truly great horror film
