Ep. 340: Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)


The GenreCast wraps up Shocktober 8: The Ocho (AKA Dead Spots) with Dalton's blind spot, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. In a fun twist, this was a blind spot for all three hosts. After a few film festival showings, Henry fought the odds and finally received a release and helped anchor the NC-17 rating. The film is an intimate character study about a serial killer, his sidekick, the girl that creeps into his life. Featuring an early A+ Michael Rooker performance, Henry shocks and saddens as it plays its tragic tale out. We discuss serial killer and true crime fascination, production, realism in film and how it factors into fear. So tune in as we pull the train into the station and discuss Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
