Dark Sky Films proudly presents HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER in a brand new 4K scan and restoration from the 16mm original camera negatives, and featuring a new 5.1 audio mix from the stereo 35mm mag reels, all approved by director John McNaughton. Sure to send shivers of mortal dread through a whole new generation of filmgoers, this amazing new transfer puts HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER firmly back into the vanguard of contemporary cinematic horror."
If you've never seen this gritty, bleak, far-too-realistic look inside of the life of a Serial Killer, you really need to give Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer a go. This movie messed with my head when I was a kid, and when I showed it to a girlfriend many years later, it freaked her out so bad that she didn't sleep for two days. True story.
From what we hear, the Blu-ray looks fantastic, and we can say with confidence that Michael Rooker puts on a clinic in creepiness in this one that just can't be missed.

One of the best low-budget Horror flicks of all-time, Don Coscarelli's Phantasm has never looked better on Blu-ray. In fact, it's never been on Blu-ray in the U.S. before, and what a debut this is.
A great flick, this is THE version to grab and add to your collection... which you really need to.
- NEW 4K Restoration.
- Audio Commentary with Director Don Coscarelli and cast members Michael Baldwin, Angus Scrimm, & Bill Thornbury.
- Graveyard Cars.
- Interviews from 1979 with Don Coscarelli and Angus Scrimm.
- Deleted Scenes.
- The Devil's Dolls looks good for a lower budget flick.
- In Order of Disappearance was a cool Scandi Noir flick that we still need to review, but really dug.
- Jason Bourne was cool, if you like the Bourne flicks.
- Both Mad Max releases are worth a look, especially the High-Octane Collection.
- Batman v Superman wasn't as bad as it was made out to be; it was just packed with too much shit, and ended up feeling over-stuffed and confused. In any case, there's a new "Ultimate" Edition Boxed Set on Blu-ray, so, yeah.
- You can skip the Shannara Chronicles unless you're a 12-year-old girl who likes shitty TV shows. It's an affront the the books, which all of us here at THC loved while we were growing up.
On the DVD front...
- Scream Queens is all kinds of shameless, offensive, ridiculous fun. Chad Radwell forever!
- Jack Goes Home was a solid flick. Read our review HERE.
- The Remains, Trash Fire, and The Unspoken look interesting.
- And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
