Henry Lee Lucas (Michael Rooker) and his buddy Otis (Tom Towels) maybe your typical buddies but secretly they are murderers in Chicago. Henry has a fetish for having sex with dead bodies and animals including an appetite for murder at night secretly, hell even Otis and Henry both video tape killing people for their pleasures. Henry seems to be falling for his buddy's hot sister Becky (Tracy Arnold) but Otis doesn't want that, he wants to keep his horrible secrets to himself away from the girl he desires as he's actually a real monster within.
A powerful, brutal and unique horror drama thriller from writer-director John McNaughton is one of the greatest and most disturbing horror movies ever made. Based on the murders and life of Henry Lee Lucas who is a real-life killer, The film is very realistic and hard to watch at times even with the gory murder sequences and snuff-filmmaking scenes, the film is praised as a brilliant and horrific piece of cinema that really kicks you in the gut and never lets go. The film was made in 1986 but got an X-rating due to extreme violence and subject matter but didn't got to see the light of day in theaters until 1990 without a rating but tons of praise. It's not like your typical slasher movie, this is a very human and terrific movie that takes you inside the mind of a monster.
This Blu-Ray offers stunning picture with quality sound with wonderful extras like audio commentary, trailer, still gallery, documentary, deleted scenes and outtakes with optional commentary, storyboards and interview with the director."
