Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
1986
***
Director: Jim McNaughton
Cast: Michael Rooker, Tracy Arnold, Tom Towles, David Katz, Mary Demas

A chilly and reserved crime drama about a serial killer (loosely based on Henry Lee Lucas). The story portrays Henry’s atrocities without judgment, and the narrative doesn’t offer traditional dramatic high or low points. This approach is fresh but the result is underwhelming.
