** Of the "serial killer lead" subgenre of the {{villain protagonist}} genre, i.e. all the serial killer and slasher films of the 90s and onward that have us root for the villain and may sometimes even give them a sympathetic motive.

Unlike such protagonists as [[AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]], Henry is socially awkward, plain-looking, not particularly intelligent, and downright vicious.
