Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
I recently reviewed the controversial Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer for Flick Feast:
This is the kind of film that the phrase ‘gritty realism’ was made for. The startlingly bleak reality of ‘Henry…’ adds to the disturbing tone of the movie and it’s no surprise that the film spent 3 years in limbo due to the MPAA refusing to grant the film even an ‘R’ rating in America. Likewise in the UK, the BBFC insisted on over a minute of cuts before finally granting the film an 18 certificate four years after its initial release. The story is loosely based on real life killer Henry Lee Lucas and follows the horrific murder spree of heartless criminal. Henry’s increasingly grotesque actions occur with apparent impunity from the law and his emotional indifference to murder is unwavering.
