HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER Restored in 4K
It was a true game-changer, a film so upsetting in its blunt depiction of an amoral murderer that it made the slasher films of its time look like cartoons by comparison. HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER became a lightning rod in heated debates about cinema and censorship but has only grown in stature since its first showing in 1986. Now, on the 30th anniversary of its momentous debut, it returns in a 4K restoration re-release nationwide via Dark Sky Films, with major theatrical engagements to begin on October 21, 2016.
The response from both critics and the public was as visceral as the film itself, and it went on to gain praise as one of the most compelling and disturbing films of modern cinema.
HENRY opens in New York on October 21 at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema and on October 28 at the Laemmle NoHo in Los Angeles.
I have only seen this film on my television at home. To see this film restored and on the big screen will be a real treat for me. I hope to see you at the Los Angeles showing.
