Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer 2 : Mask of SanityA somewhat disappointing follow up to John McNaughton's classic shocker is all I can really say about this sequel, which picks up some time after the events of Part 1.

Henry (now played by Neil Giuntoli) is broke and living in a homeless shelter, along with a lot of street low-life's. Looking for a way to earn some money, he stumbles across a job at a plant hire firm where he befriends co-worker Kai (Rich Komenich) and and his wife Cricket (Kate Walsh), who allow him to rent a room off them.

But Kai and his boss are also secretly running an insurance scam racket, burning down properties for greedy landlords and Henry soon gets involved as well. However, when a couple of hapless teenagers stumble in on them during a job, it gives Henry the chance to introduce Kai to the joys of cold blooded murder.

And so each night after work, they go out together and burn a few buildings down, then stop off and murder a few couples on the way home. But tensions run high when Kai finally decides that killing is not his thing, and Cricket discovers that her simpleton niece Louisa (Carri Levinson) has been visiting Henry's room during the night (if you know what I mean).

Looks like the end of another beautiful relationship, but then what did you expect from a serial killer? To be fair, the film isn't bad, but pales in comparison to the original. Directed by Chuck Parello, fans of the original will undoubtedly be disappointed by the absence of the original star Michael Rooker.

Overall Marks : 4/10.
