Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Review

Synopsis:

Henry, a drifter, commits a series of brutal murders, supposedly operating with impunity.

I watched this last night after hearing never ending praise for it. Right away I noticed that it was basically an 80’s cheesy b-movie. The acting was eh and the story was ehh and the gore was ehhh…

But yeah, all in all the movie was done very well. It was very disturbing, even though you didn’t see most of the brutal murders, just seeing like, the bloody suitcase you knew was full of body parts made you uneasy. They did a very good job of making you uncomfortable.

As for the infamous family rape/killing video tape scene.. all i gotta say is.. give me a break. I’ve seen much worse.. I’ve been told this was like a snuff film.. I dunno..

The movie was good, but it’s way overrated in my eyes…
