John McNaughton’s “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” about the nomadic killer Henry and his murderous exploits, based on the real-life serial killer Henry Lee Lucas, made its world premiere at the Chicago International Film Festival in 1986. It then traveled the festival circuit throughout the late 80s, including Telluride and Boston, where it garnered acclaim and controversy from critics, distributors, and the public for its graphic violence and nihilistic tone. Finally, in 1990, Greycat Films picked it up for limited release and it entered theaters unrated, as opposed to the Mppa’s X rating, which was usually saved only for pornographic films. Now for its 30th anniversary, Dark Sky Films will release a 4K restoration of the film that will open in theaters nationwide. Watch an exclusive clip from the restored film below.
