The chilling “Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer” is coming to Steelbook with a Zavvi exclusive
The controversial Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer is getting a Zavvi UK exclusive steelbook.
Pre-orders will be live around noon on July 4th (so ignore the’sold out’ button for now) – we’ll keep you updated.
Released from prison following his mother’s murder. Henry (Michael Rooker, JFK) supplements his job as an exterminator with a series of violent, indiscriminate murders. Crazed drug dealer and fellow jailbird Otis (Tom Towles) provides Henry with a willing accomplice in his grisly pursuits but as the depravity escalates and Henry begins to form a tentative bond with Otis’ sister Becky (Tracy Arnold) events spiral towards a chilling and violent conclusion.
Based on the harrowing true story of convicted mass-murderer Henry Lee Lucas (portrayed with a dead-eye passivity by a magnetic rooker), John McNaughtonis (Mad Dog and Glory, Wild Things) Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer is one of the most remarkable films in the crowded serial killer genre. Impressively building to a disquieting and horrific climax, the film provides a sobering and nightmarish glimpse into a deranged and damaged mind.
A bona-fide cult classic that as well as being long unavailable is presented here for the first time in its entirety and as the director intended: it’s a startling, morally complex and frequently uncompromising work of genuine daring and vision.
