HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER

RE: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

In regards to your review.....

I am a very successful 18 year old college student, making great grades and am very happy. The one thing that would make my life complete is something that nearly everyone has but me...my mother. Henry Lee Lucas killed my mother in 1983, when I was only three years old. She was a pretty, petite 17 year old who was hitchhiking and had no clue as to what fate would bring her that night. She was raped, beaten, and drug almost 10 miles naked by a vehicle that had one end of a rope tied to her neck and the other end tied to the bumper.

In short, I have never seen this movie, nor have I even heard of this movie until now. I think that the way you "celebritize" Lucas and make him out to be God is atrocious and it is demeaning, both to me and to my family. Put yourself in my shoes--do you think that you would react the same?

T3: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

T4: I have to say, when I first rented this movie I had my doubts. When I started the movie my doubts were already gone. At the beginning when it show the lifeless body of that women, I already knew that raw brutality was going to be present throughout. I loved this movie so much I had to rent it twice, the second time I rented it at Blockbuster and the rental box said "NO ONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO WATCH THIS MOTION PICTURE" and I thought to myself, even Blockbuster knows who good this film is. The thing I like about this movie is that director John McNaughton is not afraid to take this movie to extremes. The murder scenes are presented ina original fashion it will show the body and then play a piece of the strugle( the victim and Henry had). The part where it showed the partially naked hooker wtih the glass bottle stuck in her blood-drenched face was a classic(and you could hear their brief confrontation). The director is not afraid to show even children being murdered, most directors will not have to the guts to do that. The incest/rape scene was disgusting, but if that would not have happened Otis would have been stabbed in the eye, and get his head chopped off and put in a bag. The finale is the real shocker, it proved that he would kill anyone, even people who were nice to him (actually I think he killed her because he was afraid she'd tell). A masterpiece in every way. One of the most controversial releases of the 80's. Originally Rated X. It the best serial killer film though. If you have any objections, questions and comments, well take a guess what to do (it begins with an e and ends with a L, ok ok e-mail)

T3: Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer

T4: I have to say that this was an excellent crime/horror film. I just wished the MPAA would not have given it such a hard time. Henry's murderous aftermath was presented in such an explicit fashion, which make the movie all the more interesting. The graphic violence is why most people who hate this movie hate this movie, if not the unpleasant rape/incest scene. All together this was an excellent movie.
