    henry portrait of a serial killer is a brilliant movie based on the exploits of henry lee lucas, a serial killer from Texas who confessed to killing hundreds of people in the 80's, this movie is based on his confessions, even though most turned out to be lies, all though he did murder at least 11 people. michael rooker is great as henry and gives a truly great horror performance. of all the serial killer biopics this is still probably the most gruesome and disturbing, with only the secret life of jeffrey dahmer and ted bundy coming close, to some of the depravity in this movie, it isn't for everyone as its very gruesome and sick, but it remains a brilliant horror movie, and a classic of modern cinema, i highly recommend
