The seedy side of Chicago, the 1980's: Henry (Michael Rooker) likes killing people, he just does, ever since he has killed his mother, and most of his murders at least seem to be sexually motivated. Henry lives together with Otis (Tom Towles), an easy-to-impress redneck Henry has met in jail, whom Henry eventually lets in on his secret - that he is a serial killer - and Otis soon becomes Henry's willing accomplice, even though he's much less contained than the rather stoic Henry.

Eventually, Otis' sister Becky (Tracy Arnold) comes to live with them, as she has just run away from her abusive husband. It doesn't take long before she falls in love with Henry, without knowing about his secret obsession of course. After quite some time of romancing, Becky wants to get intimate with Henry, which is when he starts to panic slightly, and when Otis catches them in Henry's room, his sister half naked, Henry grabs the chance to make an escape and go for some cigarettes. When he returns though, Otis is in the middle of raping his sister, and the two men get into a fight which ends in Henry killing Otis in self defense.

Becky wants to call the cops, but given that Henry has already been in jail for matricide, he doesn't think that's such a good idea, and they decide to make a getaway together, to hide out at his sister's. On the way there, they spend a night in a motel ... and the next day, Henry, now traveling alone, drops a large bag, large enough to contain a human body, at the side of the road.


Truly powerful serial killer flick as it refuses to take sides and provide its audience with simple answers - and yet the film, very loosely based on real life serial killer Henry Lee Lucas, is scary and disturbing as hell. Plus John McNaughton, who had to make this movie - his debut feature film - on a very low budget, knew how to make the best of the little he had got without making his film look shabby - and has turned out the best film of his career probably. In fact the lack of funds makes the film all the more authentic and realistic - which is not necessarily a good thing, but in this case it works. Add to this a wonderful central performance by Mcihael Rooker and able support by both Tom Towles and Tracy Arnold (who in some scenes seems to be begging to be killed to everyone who knows about Henry's favourite pastime), and you've got yourself a near-perfect film.
