Film Reviews: “Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer” (1986)

Michael Rooker (Mallrats, The Walking Dead) stars as Henry, a man who in real life confessed to over 600 murders, one of them being his own mother. Suffice to say, he is “deeply deeply troubled.” Henry lives with Otis. They kill people, and they don’t regret it. In fact, they video tape it. This film doesn’t have an objective eye, it only shows the two as they are, how they interact, and how coldly they interpret their lives. It’s disturbing and raw. Fascinating enough for a one time viewing, sick enough to keep it that way. Not much story, but one outstanding performance by Michael Rooker.

2.5 out of 4.0 stars.
