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.

Stark and riveting. Deeply disturbing. You can't take your eyes off it. We are complicit.
A classic. So ahead of its time.
its pretty tame and leaves me wanting more but its well acted its worth a watch
Utterly disturbing and well written. It feels realistic and I imagine it is what it would really be like to be around a killer and in his life. Perfectly shot and hauntingly existential in parts, this is a must see.
I feel like this was probably really controversial and shocking when it came out but my god it is so boring. There are some shocking scenes but pretty much all the murders happen off screen. It is absolutely not one of the most shocking films ever and whoever says it is, is a liar,
