Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition (MPI Home Video, Blu-ray)

Undeniably one of the most harrowing American films of the 20th century, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer hits Blu-ray with a restoration that cements its reputation as a shocking, thought-provoking nightmare-plunge into the depths of the human soul.

Henry, a psychopathic drifter who has left a trail of bodies in his wake, settles for a while at the dilapidated Chicago apartment of ex-prison mate Otis. Into this toxic environment comes Otis’ younger sister Becky, who’s fleeing an abusive marriage and looking for a place to stay. Deflecting her brother s incestuous advances, Becky finds herself attracted to Henry and sees him as a potential lover and herself as his possible savior. What she doesn’t realize is that Otis and Henry are now killing together, sinking to ever more terrifying depths of depravity. As Becky tries to get her life back on track, she looks to Henry for a way out. But is redemption even possible for a man like Henry?

In celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary, Dark Sky Films is proud to present Henry in a brand new 4K scan, restored from the 16mm original camera negative and approved by director John McNaughton and producer Steven A. Jones, featuring a new 5.1 mix restoration from the stereo 35mm mag reels.

There, he finds deadly, spectral creatures inhabiting the home's embalming cellar and comes face-to-face with the sinister Tall Man.
