Realistic, factual, frightening.
9 October 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am really surprised by the amount of negative criticism this film has. I believe it is a well made, well scripted film that portrays the 'abnormal' life of one of Americas most notorious serial killers : Henry Lee Lucas.

The screenplay is very similar to the true events that occurred in Henry's life.

His mother was a drunk, prostitute and an abusive woman of whom beat her son day after day. The amount of physical and mental abuse he stomached, would be too much for a lot of us to handle.

Although this was a low budget film, I don't believe anybody should give it a low rating. The point of this film was to give people an insight into the life of Henry Lee Lucas, not to be judged by its quality and budget. Overall, I believe it shows pure realism. 10/10.
