Director: John McNaughton
Stars: Michael Rooker, Tom Towles, Tracy Arnold
Loosely based on the life of Henry Lee Lucas, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer follows the exploits of a crazed killer, played by Michael Rooker. During the film, Henry befriends a fellow prisoner named Otis, and the two go about a savage rampage of random killings, neither expressing even the slightest bit of remorse.
Henry seperates itself from other serial killer dramas by avoiding the investigating cops; instead, we're stuck inside the killer's head the whole time, a very dangerous place to be. In the end, even the people Henry calls "friends" and "lovers" don't stand a chance. —JS
