This is THE best serial killer film concerning the sick exploits of Henry Lee Lucas, period. Yeah, it's better than Henry: Portrait of by a ways really. Robert A. Burns, the mastermind behind the set design of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, plays this role perfectly. The story here concerns Daniel Ray Hawkins, but for all intents and purposes, this is Henru Lee Lucas. The story is so very closely followed, the name changes don't matter. Burns even looks like Lucas here and plays him to perfection. He's low key, unfeeling, and a perfect sociopath, and that's exactly how Lucas was. This movie is filled with sick situations and murders, so don't let the laid back nature of it fool you. All the sick details of the Lucas life story are here. The slutty mom that screws right in front of her kids, a threesome in this movie, Lucas' partner in crime Otis Toole, called moon here, the necrophilia, the lies, it's all here kids. I can't tell ya' how cool this movie is and how good Burns does this character. The scene of where Hawkins lubes his tube with cold cream and sodomizes some poor woman they've tricked into letting them in her home while Moon cuts her throat is priceless. Listening to the confessions is awesome also. The shit this guy may or may not have done. I think many have overlooked this gem of a movie in favor of the always-hyped Henry. That's a shame to, as this film is grittier and more real. If you want a realistic look in the life of a killer, get this one. It demands attention. Lucas buffs definitely need to see this. It's one tough piece of film.
