Michael Rooker is simply terrific as "Henry". A man, who seems so ordinary in the outside but in the outside, he is a dangerous serial murderer, who kills mostly woman. While he is staying with a friend Otis (Tom Tolwes) in Chicago for a few weeks. Henry gets to meet Otis' shy, pretty if broken-hearted simple sister Becky (Tracy Arnold), who is staying with her brother for awhile as well. Henry brings Otis to his crimes by murdering prostitutes, motorists and families. Otis starts to love killing people with Henry. While Becky falls for Henry, but she doesn't know that Henry is a dangerous psychopathic murderer and her brother joins him in his unspeakable crimes.
Directed by John McNaughton (Wild Things) made an horrific horror drama with some darkly humourous black comedy. Rooker, Tolwes and Arnold are extremely good in their roles. As for Rooker, he did went on to be a major character actor in Hollywood. He always works as a actor. The Blu-ray Full Screen (1.33:1) 1080P transfer is good and PCM 2.0 Stereo Sound is fine as well. There is an great running commentary track by the director and David Gregory, deleted scenes with commentary by McNaughton and Gregory, Documentary on the feature and more. "Henry:Potrait of a Serial Killer" is not an easy movie to watch. It is extremely well directed, hard to believe the director made it as a Direct to Video project at that time. It actually taken an few years to be released after it was filmed in 1986. A near masterpiece. Grade:A. Grade:B+ for the Picture Quality and Sound.
