Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (UK) in October

Studio Canal have announced the UK Double Play release of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer on 24th October 2011. Based on the harrowing true story of one of America's most notorious mass-murderers, Henry Lee Lucas (portrayed by Michael Rooker), John McNaughton's Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer builds to a disquieting and horrific climax and provides a sobering, nightmarish glimpse into a deranged and damaged mind. On its initial release, America's MPAA gave the film the notorious X-rating, claiming that they "wouldn't know where to begin cutting". While in Britain, Chief Censor James Ferman took a whole year to give the film a certificate. "One of our psychologists said the film was remarkably accurate," he argued, effectively giving it its best review.

This 25th Anniversary Edition is a Double Play set (includes both DVD & Blu-ray) with the following extras:

  • Portrait: The Making of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
  • The Serial Killers: Henry Lee Lucas
  • Interview with Director John McNaughton
  • John McNaughton in conversation with Nigel Floyd
  • Censorship History
  • Deleted Scenes and Outtakes with commentary by John McNaughton
