In career that has encompassed such controversial classics as Ms. 45, Bad Lieutenant and Welcome to New York, none of Abel Ferrara s films have quite managed to match the shock, extremity and downright notorious nature of The Driller Killer.
Ferrara plays struggling artist Reno, a man pushed to the edge by the economic realities of New York living in the late seventies and the No Wave band practising in the apartment below. His grip on reality soon begins to slip and he takes to stalking the streets with his power tool in search of prey...
Forgot Taxi Driver, The Warriors and The New York Ripper, The Driller Killer is the definitive look at NYC s underbelly a slasher that is as much at home in the arthouse as it is the grindhouse.

Well, like the mighty UFO once sang, "oh how the times have changed"...
Somewhere along the way I let my taste in film genre off of it's leash one day and the dang thing went wild. You know when a Horror film fanatic starts watching Musicals, there's gonna be trouble in the neighborhood, but among many other things, I got interested in the films of this Abel Ferrara guy.
Some of his movies were a challenge, but his style really started to to grow on me. This was a Director who not only took chances, but I believe he did so because he FIRMLY BELIEVED IN HIS VISION and would not allow them to be presented in any other way than what he saw as his art.
So I began to desire a revisit of this early Ferrara effort, and after seeing Ms. 45 awhile back and having my senses knocked sideways over it, I knew another date with The Driller Killer was inevitable. When I heard Arrow Video was planning a Director-Approved Special Edition of it, I started remapping my destiny.
Little did I know what was in store for me. Remember what put me off of the film when I was younger? Those are the very same qualities that I loved about it this time around! Only now I see that THIS IS AN ART FILM which is undoubtedly why I couldn't comprehend it as a Horror film back in the day.
One of the many extras provided here is a documentary called Mulberry St. that still haunts me, and that's only a portion of the treats in store. Now that I own it, I can't imagine living without it, and let's face it, that means a movie (and specifically a Special Edition of that movie) has delivered the goods.
