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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mild Waste of Money April 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recieved my copy of The Driller Killer within only a few days of purchase. Great quality and great shipping. Problem is, a good ten minutes of this film, and two pretty big deaths, are blurred out totally in red. You can only hear what's going on. It's not a problem with the film, and I haven't read any other reports or reviews of this supposed to be in the movie, so If you're going to get this film, which isn't completely horrible, don't get this copy of it. You'll be missing out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Power Tool Abuse May 8, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie initially seemed to have a lot of promise in the slasher flick category. You have a guy quickly going crazy because of stress and punk rock. You have an early cordless drill. You have lots of people in a big city just waiting to be drilled. The guy quickly going crazy seems to be psychotic. This movie has everything for a recipe for fear and terror! I would not count on much fear and terror.

Reno Miller is an artist with a couple of live-in girlfriends, an obnoxious agent, and neighbors that like to practice their punk rock music when he wants to paint. Reno is under pressure to pay bills. In addition to the stress, at least one of his girlfriends is ditzy. The stress is driving Reno crazy, literally. One day, Reno uses an early cordless drill and starts to have visions. In a movie like this, you take one drill, add visions, and mayhem is sure to start, and it does. Reno soon practices his drilling technique on an array of people. So, is Reno an artist or a budding doctor with a drill? Trust me; Reno was much better at art than drill surgery. I consider what Reno did to that poor drill to be drill abuse.

Even though drill surgery without anesthetic sounds bloody, there was a surprisingly small amount of blood. On the other hand, that sort of special effect requires money and this movie seems like it was very low budget. Nor was there much excitement in this movie. In fact, much of the movie was devoted to the rock group next door or downstairs or wherever it was. It seems like the rock music was a substitute for an actual plot, of which there was too little. We did have some scenes that supposedly communicated Reno's descent into madness, but I thought the scenes were annoying and tedious.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Ferrara's normal standards. November 30, 2005
Format:DVD
The Driller Killer (Abel Ferrara, 1979)

Abel Ferrara and Nicholas St. John have been working together for a long, long time. They'd been doing their thing for years on the indie and porn circuits before The Driller Killer, Ferrara's first feature film (and the first of many scripted by St. John) appeared. And yet somehow this movie still has all the hallmarks of a first film, without really having any of the strengths one expects.

Reno Miller (Ferrara) is an artist, living in Manhattan with two women, Carol and Pamela (Carolyn Marz and Baybi Day, neither of whom ever appeared in another film-- and with good reason). While on the surface this would seem to be every man's dream, Miller is struggling to pay the bills, and to make matters worse, the landlord has just rented the apartment upstairs to a horrible new wave band who practice at all hours of the night. In order to combat the stress, Miller does what any normal person would-- he starts carrying a portable power drill around with him and using it to randomly kill bums on the street.

I'm still trying to figure out why this film was cut for release (two minutes were shaved off for UK release). I haven't seen the cut version, but I'm guessing the majority of the cuts were made in the cheesecake scenes (Carolyn and Pamela are just as happy with one another as they are with Miller, a minor character feature that adds absolutely nothing to the film save a modicum of watchability during one or two of the slow bits) rather than the pedestrian, uninspiring violence (and it's not a time-frame thing; the movie came out a couple of weeks after Dawn of the Dead, shot on a similar shoestring budget, but with far more explicit, and everpresent, gore effects).
