In a 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.

Press Quotes

While retaining the movie's grungy vibe, Arrow's transfers give THE DRILLER KILLER a visual polish it has never had on home video before, with a rock-solid image and fine colors, pointing up the evocative and occasionally quite expressive lighting. With this restoration, the movie benefits from being viewed not only at top volume but also on big home screens, thanks to its truly impressive 4K restoration.

Arrow Video's presentation of the film is definitely the go-to choice for seeing it on home video and will likely remain so for years to come
