Utterly disturbing masterpiece. The horror in this one comes from the fact that it feels utterly real.

Even more disturbing than the violence and heartlessness of Henry is the increasing desensitization to killing that Otis transitions through. I've had nightmares about that and this film. Absolute masterpiece.

Every Movie I've Made in Chronological Order. (20 movies items)

"Serial-Killed (2012) Plot: A serial killer who has killed a few people gets killed by a little kid. Pros: - For Windows Movie Maker, the editing is pretty damn good. - It is probably one of the weirdest movies I've ever made. Cons: - The second half is kind of stupid. - It's possible to die while getting kicked, you poorly-developed movie character. 7/10 "

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"12.11. (DVD) Erityisesti loppua nuuskiessaan ahdistavaksi alkava Henry Lee Lucas - sarjamurhaaja värittää historiaa omalla synkällä tavallaan. Chicagon likaisimmista white trash -naapurustoista piirretään eräs synkkä selitys sille, miksei tuntemattomia murhaava Henry jää kiinni: potentiaalisia tekijöitä on yksinkertaisesti liikaa. Ihmisiä hakataan kadulla ja alati jonkun kerrotaan tappaneen toisen. Väkivalta on yksinkertaisesti läsnä kaikkialla. Kaiken loan keskeltä on vaikea"

My Favorite 199 Films From The 80's, y'all. (199 movies items)

"Before it became the caricature that audiences were assimilated to with the advent of slasher pics, the idea of the serial killer was usually enough to carry the horror of any scare flick based on the premise. Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer reintroduced this bare bones approach to this type of multi-murdering movie mayhem. Portraying the killer as the type of person that you could easily run into the local corner pub or in the next pump at the gas station, this is a film that reminds us that"
