Was this review helpful to you? Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is a American psychological horror crime film directed and co-written by John McNaughton , about the random crime spree of a serial killer who seemingly operates with impunity.
Henry was filmed in but had difficulty finding a film distributor. It premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival in and played at other festivals throughout the late s.
Following successful showings during which it attracted both controversy and positive critical attention, the film was rated "X" by the MPAA , further increasing its reputation for controversy.
It was subsequently picked up for a limited release in in an unrated version. The original poster artwork was a painting by Joe Coleman.
It was considered too extreme and after being withdrawn, was replaced by the current official poster. Henry Michael Rooker is a psychopath drifter who murders scores of people - men, women, and children - as he travels through America.
He migrates to Chicago , where he stops at a diner, eats dinner and later murders the elderly proprietors of a liquor store.
Otis Tom Towles , a drug dealer and prison friend of Henry's, picks up his sister Becky Tracy Arnold , who left her abusive husband, at the airport.
Otis brings Becky back to the apartment he shares with Henry. Later that night, as Henry and Becky play cards, Becky asks Henry about the murder of his mother, the crime that landed him in prison.
He tells her he stabbed his mother because she abused and humiliated him as a child, often having sex in front of him, though he later claims he shot her.
Becky reveals that her father raped her as a teenager. Henry reveals that he is disturbed by sexual violence against women because of his prior child abuse at the hands of his mother, forming a seemingly protective bond with Becky.
Later when Otis makes an incestuous pass at Becky, Henry violently threatens Otis. Otis promises not to do that again.
Becky indicates a romantic interest in Henry for his actions having protected her. The next day, Becky gets a job in a hair salon.
Otis is shocked and disturbed and confronts Henry about his murderous lifestyle. Henry invites him to join his philosophy of murder, trying to convince him of a relativistic nature of murder.
Otis worries that the police might catch them, however, Henry assures him that everything will work out.
Back at their apartment, Henry explains his code of immorality: the world is "them or us". Otis seemingly accepts and drops the argument.
Later on, Otis becomes frustrated at his television's poor reception, kicking in the screen, destroying it. Henry takes him to a fence to buy a new TV at a discount.
The man is rude and sarcastic and begins to berate Henry and Otis when they refuse to buy his black-market goods.
Henry uses the threat as an excuse to indulge his murderous impulses, and Henry stabs him repeatedly with a soldering iron nearby.
When he fights back, Otis grabs a rope and starts to choke the man. Henry then smashes a TV onto his head. At Henry's urging, Otis plugs in the damaged TV, electrocuting the man's corpse.
They then steal a high-end TV and a camcorder and return home undetected. When Otis is punched in the face by a young teenage boy he tries to sexually assault, he complains to Henry that he wants to murder the boy.
Otis is convinced by Henry to abandon that grudge for fear of being caught if he harmed the boy and, bolstered by the thrill of their previous homicide, decide to go on a random serial-killing spree together.
They set a trap at night for drivers on the highway, faking a broken down car, shooting a man to death who pulls over to help them.
Henry advises Otis that every murder should have a different modus operandi so the police will not connect various murders to one perpetrator.
He also explains that it is important never to stay in the same place for too long; by the time police know they are looking for a serial killer, he can be long gone.
Henry tells Otis that he will have to leave Chicago soon. Later on, the pair watch a recording of a family they kidnapped, tortured, sexually assaulted and finally murdered.
Becky quits her job so she can return home to her daughter. Otis and Henry argue after their camera gets destroyed while Otis is filming female pedestrians from the window of Henry's car.
Otis gets out of the car and goes for a drink, while Henry returns to the apartment. Becky tells Henry her plans, and they decide to go out for a steak dinner.
Afterward, she tries to seduce him, but a drunken Otis enters and asks if he's interrupting anything. Using Otis's return as an excuse, Henry leaves to buy cigarettes and get some air.
When he returns he finds Otis is raping Becky anally and is strangling her with her shirt. Henry fights Otis however Otis gets the upper hand, smashing a bourbon bottle onto Henry's face.
Otis is about to kill Henry when Becky stabs Otis in the eye with the pointed handle of a rattail comb.
Henry brutally stabs Otis with a knife, murdering him, and then dismembers his body in the bathtub. Henry and Becky dump Otis's body parts in a river and leave town.
Henry suggests that they go to his sister's ranch in San Bernardino, California , promising Becky they will send for her daughter when they arrive.
In the car, Becky confesses that she loves Henry. They book a motel room for the night. The next morning, Henry leaves the motel alone, gets into the car and drives away without Becky.
He stops at the side of the road to dump Becky's blood-stained suitcase in a ditch, for which something large is stuffed into, then drives away.
Becky's screams from the night before can be heard as he drives off. In , executive producers Malik B. Ali and Waleed B.
Ali of Maljack Productions MPI hired John McNaughton , a former delivery man for their video equipment rental business, to direct a documentary about gangsters in Chicago during the s.
Dealers in Death was a moderate success, and was well received critically, so the Ali brothers kept McNaughton on as director for a second documentary about the Chicago wrestling scene in the s.
A collection of vintage wrestling tapes had been discovered, and the owner was willing to sell them to the Ali brothers for use in the documentary.
However, after financing was in place, the owner doubled his price and the brothers pulled out of the deal. With the documentary cancelled, Waleed and McNaughton decided that the money for the documentary could instead be used to finance a feature film.
McNaughton decided to film a fictional version of Lucas's crimes. In the meantime, the Ali brothers brought Steven A. Jones onto the project as a producer, and Jones hired Richard Fire to work as McNaughton's co-writer.
With the producer, writer, and director in place and with the subject matter decided upon, the film went into production.
During filmmaking, costs were cut by employing family and friends wherever possible, and participants utilized their own possessions. For example, the dead couple in the bar at the start of the film are the parents of director John McNaughton's best friend, while the bar itself is where McNaughton once worked.
Actress Mary Demas, a close friend of McNaughton's, plays three different murder victims: the woman in the ditch in the opening shot, the woman with the bottle in her mouth in the toilet, and the first of the two murdered prostitutes.
The four women Henry encounters outside the shopping mall were all played by close friends of McNaughton. The woman hitchhiking was a woman with whom McNaughton used to work.
The clothes Michael Rooker wears throughout the film were his own apart from the shoes and socks. The Chevrolet Impala driven by Henry belonged to one of the electricians on the film.
Art director Rick Paul plays the man shot in the layby; storyboard artist Frank Coronado plays the smaller of the attacking bums; grip Brian Graham plays the husband in the family-massacre scene; and executive producer Waleed B.
Ali plays the clerk serving Henry towards the end of the film. Rooker remained in character for the duration of filming, even off set, not socializing with any of the cast or crew during the month-long shoot.
According to the costume designer Patricia Hart, she and Rooker would travel to the set together each day, and she never knew from one minute to the next if she was talking to Michael or to Henry as sometimes he would speak about his childhood and background not as Michael Rooker but as Henry.
Indeed, Rooker remained so in-character, that during the shoot, his wife discovered she was pregnant, but she waited until filming had stopped before she told him.
Because the production had so little money, they could not afford extras , so all of the people in the exterior shots of the streets of Chicago are simply pedestrians going about their business.
