Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
Crime • 1986 • 1 hr 23 min
Utterly chilling portrayal of the banality of evil.
Cult classic. It’s slower than movies now a days but the pay off way better
The best depiction of a serial killer that I’ve ever seen.
Seriously disturbing. You'll feel you need shower when it's over. Will stick with you for days. 80s indie starring The Walking Dead's Merle.
The documentary style keeps the film from sensationalizing the violence and makes it all the more disturbing for it.
Classic, cinematic-darkness featuring an iconic performance by Michael Rooker. Truly a chilling depiction of Humanity's blood-lust.9.7/10
Very dark and actually scary, humans are the real evil here
Great movie that makes you feel you're watching a real serial killer. Michael Rooker is phenomenal. Great pacing, good story.
Disturbing, graphic, no holds barred depiction inside the twisted mind of a serial killer
It had some amount of documentary way of filming, which made it even more disturbing
Henry likes to kill people, in different ways each time. Henry shares an apartment with Otis. When Otis' sister comes to stay, we see both sides of Henry: "the guy next door" and the serial killer.
Henry has wandered into a small town looking for work and a place to stay. He gets a job delivering and cleaning porto-potties and moves in with a co-worker until he gets his feet off of the ground. Henry and his new friend soon start to kill.
