Special Features

Long available in incomplete or full screen editions, Abel Ferrara's 1979 cult classic The Driller Killer here receives its definitive presentation. The Driller Killer stars Ferrara himself (under the pseudonym 'Jimmy Laine') as Reno Miller; an artist being driven mad by the pressures of New York life who takes to the streets and begins murdering derelicts with a power drill. Although Ferrara intended to make a film in the tradition of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the end result bore an even greater resemblance to Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver. The Driller Killer is an indispensable addition to the collection of anyone interested in 1970s horror, the work of Abel Ferrara, or off-the-wall cinema.

Special Features:
  • Driller Killer Widescreen Version
  • Audio Commentary By Abel Ferrara
  • French & Spanish Subtitles
  • Porto-Pack Commercial
  • Trailer

1.0 out of 5 stars HE TOUCHED MY HAND August 29, 2014
Format:DVD
Reno (Abel Ferrara) is a disagreeable artist who lives with two women. He has both money problems and anger management issues, imagine that. As the pressure in life build up on him, he takes it out on the homeless with his porta-power drill. Reno is his own worse enemy and we really don't know why and really don't care.

The plot goes no where and the acting sucked.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, groping, nudity (Carolyn Marz, Baybi Day)

Opening credit: "THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD." Why, I don't know.

1.0 out of 5 stars A completely pointless and forgettable slasher. September 19, 2014
Format:DVD
What can one truly say about this highly exploitative and utterly mindless piece of garbage? Well how about wtf?! Was there really a need for this movie in the first place? Let's just see.

This movie centers around a troubled New York City painter named Reno Miller. Reno is struggling to find an inspired concept for his latest painting, his art dealer is a rude, pompous elitist who puts a lot of pressure on him, his landlord expects rent money from him soon, his relationship with his girlfriend is becoming strained, and on top of that a loud rock band moved in his apartment building only to make a lot of noise on a fairly regular basis. To make matters worse Reno's landlord doesn't care a bit about the noise that the rock band make.

As a result Reno who was initially passive and emotionally numb, just snaps. The incomprehensible thing about his emotional breakdown is he takes all of his frustrations out on the homeless. Come that point of the movie, the whole thing falls apart. And that's when he goes from Reno Miller the painter to Reno Miller "the Driller Killer". I mean I get his aggravations with other people but why the homeless? What did they ever do to him in the first place? He just invades any alley, street corner, or alley seeking out any homeless person he can find and slaughters them with his drill. WTF?!!

The acting is this movie is terribly lackluster in that everybody in it is amateurish and wooden in their performances, the characters are mostly annoying and forgettable, there are way too many filler characters and filler scenes that prove a distraction to the already going nowhere plot.

The sound quality to the DVD is dreadful and requires one to turn their tv up a little high.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Driller Killer December 9, 2013
Format:DVD
Initially I thought this would be good.

An artist flips out and runs around killing people in NYC because a punk rock band practices in his building all night long, day after day until he just can't take it anymore!! The problem is both the band and the artist are some of the most irritating characters to ever grace a bad film. Supposedly the film stars Abel Ferrara (?), but there's no such listing in the actual film credits.

Prepare to be annoyed.
