Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is a 1986 American psychological horror film directed and co-written by John McNaughton about the random crime spree of a serial killer who seemingly operates with impunity. It stars Michael Rooker as the nomadic killer Henry, Tom Towles as Otis, a prison buddy with whom Henry is living, and Tracy Arnold as Becky, Otis's sister. The characters of Henry and Otis are loosely based on real life serial killers Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole. Henry was filmed in 1985 and was intended to be released in 1986, but was not in fact released until 1990. It was shot on 16mm in less than a month with a budget of $110,000. ... more on Wikipedia
