Movie Info

A chilling profile of a cold-blooded killer that, 30 years after its historic festival premiere, has lost none of its power to shock. The film, loosely based on a true story, has been hailed as one of the most disturbing and terrifying examinations of mass murderers ever filmed. Henry is a psychopathic drifter who has coldly murdered a number of people for no particular reason and without any remorse. Leaving bodies in his wake, Henry makes his way to Chicago, where his he settles into the run-down apartment of his drug-dealing former prison friend and occasional roommate Otis.

Critic Reviews for Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer - 30th Anniversary

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4)

  • The overall tone of quotidian horror, despite the occasional dated stylistic touch, remains powerfully disturbing, a vision of evil that's man-sized, random and unexamined.

  • A gruesomely riveting sucker punch of a movie.

    Oct 20, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's genuinely upsetting in a way that no previous movie about a murderer had been, and that very few such movies have been since.

  • 'Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer' still manages to pack a punch. It's arguably still as shocking as it set out to be, and for all its dated '80s aesthetic, it's deeply disturbing and unnervingly complex.
