The cult classic movie Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer details the homicidal killing spree of a man named Henry Lee Lucas and his partner Ottis Toole. Henry claimed to be the slayer of over 600 victims. But not everything is what it seems and a strange aura of the incredibly bizarre kind surround this man and his partner. A nationwide satanic cult of death. Human sacrifices. A conspiracy. Necrophillia. Jim Jones. Henry Lee Lucas made wild claims along with Ottis Toole about these very subjects. Max Call gave Henry a chance to tell his story in Hand of Death: The Henry Lee Lucas Story with the title Hand of Death refering to the alleged nationwide satanic cult that Lucas and Toole claimed to have been involved in.
This does seem strange and theres not really any explaination given especially when he seemed such a happy hangman both before and after.

Strange though, that Lucas would get exempted from execution. He is the first person in Texas to have his death sentence commuted. And who granted it... the Governor of course. Who was the Governer responsible? I do believe he's running the country now.
