Movie Info

Having admitted to over 300 murders, Henry Lee Lucas was one of the most prolific serial killers in American history. Lucas's story has held particular fascination for filmmakers and has been loosely told in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Confessions of a Serial Killer, but director Michael Feifer (who has also made films about Ed Gein, Ted Bundy, Richard Speck, BTK, and the Boston Strangler) takes a more factual approach with this disturbing biopic. Antonio Sabato Jr. turns in a chilling performance as Lucas, who, after a lifetime of abuse at the hands of his sadistic mother, embarks on a coldblooded killing spree with the help of fellow drifter Ottis Toole (Kostas Sommer).

Audience Reviews for Drifter: Henry Lee Lucas

  • Apr 17, 2011
    Poorly casted and lacks shock value. It does touch on other parts of Henry's back story that other movies on the serial killer neglected, and the validity of Henry's crimes are also brought into question as detectives raise serious doubts about the apparant 3000 murders he comitted. Antonio Sabato Jr. is a decent actor and gives a good performance but I just felt he was miscast as Henry... he reminded me more of Richard Ramirez! The film is nowhere near as good or as disturbing as "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer".
