Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer @ YBCA (35 mm print!!)

This is one of my personal favorites ... a truly unsettling and disturbing movie, partly due to McNaughtons non-judging, matter-of-fact story telling and partly due to Michael Rookers grandiose performance. YBCA presents a 35 mm print.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

By John McNaughton


Nov 9,[masked]:30pm


This independently made horror shocker came out of nowhere, and has lost none of its power to disturb. Henry is a loose take on the story of real-life killer (and pathological liar) Henry Lee Lucas. The flat Midwestern tone and grim realism combine to create a work that is uniquely distressing and genuinely scary. Henry was actually released in theaters “unrated.” But that’s because, despite a long battle with the film’s producers, the MPAA wouldn’t budge on the X rating they assigned the film for “overall tone,” even suggesting that no amount of editing would ever get Henry an R rating. (1986, 83 min, 35mm)

      Yes, it hasn't list much of its power ... it's a daring experiment in filmmaking, showing the characters' across without judging or commenting ... Watch this in combination with 'Funny Games' and 'Man Bites Dog'

      Happy birthday Cami! However, I think I'd only be up for something close to the theater. Then I' headed home. For all you peeps who go with - have fun.

    Hi folks. Can anyone give me a ride from San Jose? I can even drive to you and we can carpool. I have a super tight budget this month and imagine parking is pricey in downtown SF. Is someone can be so generous to give me a free ride I would really love it. If I dont hear back from anyone by 5:45PM then I will change my RSVP. I really hope to go though. The film sounds fascinating.

      Leticia, I'd you can't find a ride I can take you but you'd have to come half way up - I live in San Mateo.
