Serial Thrillers

MUBI Special

An encore return to our horrific autumn: a double feature of supremely creepy serial killer classics from West Germany in the 1970s and America in the 1980s.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

John McNaughton United States, 1986

expired 342 days ago

This underrated work born from the American indie film boom of the 80s is a potent vision, bringing horror close to home with fresh, live-wire intensity. Hailed in 1986 as one of the best, most important films of the year—but a tough watch. See if you can take the trip.

Tenderness of the Wolves

Ulli Lommel West Germany, 1973

expired 343 days ago

Frequent Rainer Werner Fassbinder collaborator Ulli Lommel directed this stylish portrait of a serial killer. Replete with the several talents from Fassbinder’s cabinet of actors (including Rainer himself!), this unfairly forgotten film is an incisive look into a warped mind in a troubled society.
