John McNaughton's unsettling psuedo-biopic on Henry Lee Lucas remains a genuinely shocking portrayal of a week in the life of a serial killer. Upon its release in 1985, Henry was deemed too much for the American public, and the film languished unreleased for five years. Finally, the MPAA was forced to create a new rating - the NC-17 - and HENRY was released to strong critical acclaim. The film anticipated a grim new turn for the horror genre, but it is far from an excercise in obscenity; twenty years later it remains a mute and all-too-sobering look at a week in the life of an all-too-real urban prowler.
I love this movie. It's one of the best serial killer movies of the 80's. They're playing a 35mm print tomorrow at a local theater, it's going to be even better on the big screen.
