Andrea Bianchi is not the first name you think of when you think of Italian horror. Hell, he's probably not even in your Top 5. But if you just hear some of the titles of his movies, you may be a little more interested; Malabimba: The Malicious Whore, Strip Nude for Your Killer, What the Peeper Saw. Those are some Grade A sleaze titles right there and yes, they do deliver the goods in spades. Bianchi is to Euro sleaze what Ed Wood is to "bad" movies. Even though his only zombie movie Burial Ground (aka Nights of Terror) doesn't have the most sensational name, it does bring home the bacon.

HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER Turns 30 and Gets the HD Treatment


It was a true game-changer, a film so upsetting in its blunt depiction of an amoral murderer that it made the slasher films of its time look like cartoons by comparison. HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER became a lightning rod in heated debates about cinema and censorship but has only grown in stature since its first showing in 1986. Now, on the 30th anniversary of its momentous debut, it returns in a 4K restoration on digital platforms and blu-ray on DECEMBER 6th, following a nationwide theatrical release.
