Henry ( Antonio Sabato Jr.) is in custody of the Texas Rangers and is treated like royalty as he confesses to many crimes seen as flashbacks. Raised by an abusive mother and living dirt poor all his life, Henry embarks on a killing spree unlike anything in history. Henry teams up with Ottis (Kostas Sommer) as they are a natural pair. Henry is a necrophilia, because women talk too much. Ottis is a cannibal. He has sex with the women while they are alive. They kill the girl, then it is Henry's turn. Ottis then eats her..."She ain't a girl, she's just juicy white meat."

I enjoyed the 50's style soundtrack and theme song. The movie is not extremely graphic. The acting was fairly decent with Becky (Kelly Curran) having an accent and lines bordering on camp. The plot moves slow so as to develop Henry's character. Think of this slasher film as "Natural Born Killers" light.

F-bomb, sex, rape-like scenes, necrophilia, no nudity.

While nowhere near as good as the fictionalized Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, this film is much, much more based on fact than the other film. Sobato playing Lucas is excellent, i originally thought he would not be up to it, boy was i wrong, this guy really committed to the role, even mimicking Henry's backwoods speech pattern & he even looks just like Henry after his capture, Kostas playing Otis Toole was great also, Otis was a real sick-o & Kostas does him justice. The film is really low budget, which is it's main downfall, though director Mike Fiefer has done a few of these killer flicks & he more than makes up for it. The kills are not that graphic or gory. Overall, fairly good killer film, really nice to finally see a "true" re-telling of the Henry and Otis story.

I purchased this movie after having researched these two killers and was impressed at the accuracy in which Henry Lee Lucas at least was portrayed. The movie itself was not gory but does get the point across as to how vicious and sadistic these two psycos were. Totally callous to their victims and very brutal in their rapes. These men were definetely better off dead which they both are now. Ottis Toole died in prison in 1998 and Lucas in 2001. This movie will show you how the mind of a true psycopath works.

This truncated look at infamous serial killer suffers on many levels. Casting underwear hunk Antonio Sabato as the titular character is one of filmdom's most ridiculous miscastings ever, as is German actor Kostas Sommeras his psycho sidekick Ottis. In actuality, they were both un-handsome males.
The movie moves too slowly and its production values unremarkable. Michael Rooker's PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER did it much better years before. While it has some disturbing moments, DRIFTER is ultimately a dud.
