Acclaimed by some as the greatest movie ever made about a serial killer, John McNaughton's Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer is finally getting the special edition DVD release it so deserves.
Dark Sky Films (a division of MPI Home Video) will release H:POASK with a new hi-def transfer personally supervised by John McNaughton who has also recorded a commentary track for the DVD. The director also joins cast and crew for a full-length documentary, which includes producer Steve Jones, cinematographer Charlie Lieberman, editor Elena Maganini, and actors Michael Rooker, Tom Towles and Tracy Arnold.
The DVD will also feature storyboards, a documentary about real killer Henry Lee Lucas, a new Dolby Digital soundtrack and more and it will be released in the US (Region 1) on September 27th.
Dark Sky also plan to release Henry's sequel, (called Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer 2) by director Chuck Parello, uncut and widescreen, also on the 27th.
Henry was originally shot in 1986 but the ratings board in the US gave it an X rating because of it's "moral tone". The release was stalled until 1989 when it was released unrated.
The film was heavily censored in the UK until the 2003 cinema re-release, which had all its previous cuts waived.
