Movie Info

Detached and ruthless psychotic killer Henry returns in this grim, low-budget and violent crime melodrama that is only a pale sequel to the powerful and deeply disturbing original film. Following a montage of brutalized, bloody corpses, the story begins as Henry (Neil Giuntoli replacing Michael Rooker) calmly gets ready to slay his latest victim in a lonely storage building. After spending a night in a hellish homeless shelter, Henry gets a job installing portable toilets and meets Kai, who invites Henry to stay in his home. Kai's wife Cricket welcomes him as does her niece Louisa, a troubled art student who paints pictures of shocking violence. Kai turns out to be a part-time arsonist and teaches Henry how to do it. In turn, Henry teaches Kai about the joys of cold-blooded killing. Meanwhile, Louisa finds herself falling in love with Henry. Like the first, the film is filmed in a flat, Spartan style. There are few really gory scenes.

This 'portrait' is like watching paint dry.

A genuinely creepy and entirely worthy follow-up to McNaughton's film.

Audience Reviews for Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Part 2

It's not so bad but definitely nothing compare to the first film. There are so shocking scenes but it appears they tried too hard, also this time there is actually a motive behind the cruelty so that defeated the purpose of criminal profiling.

Well this movie is pretty simple Henry now pretty much living on the streets going from place to place decides to settle down when he finally gets a job cleaning toilets at job sites he is taken in by a husband and wife who couldnt be more trailer park and there neice who has a very bad case of crazy also turns out the husband likes to burn stuff down and decides to take henry along for the ride while in return henry shows him how to kill. i really thought the first Henry was perfect in everyway but this one let me down of course Michael Rooker isnt back and the actor taken his place is kinda stiff and wooden still not a bad watch but dont compare it to the orignal in anyway this one stands alone
