    Driller Killer
    Iconoclastic filmmaker Abel Ferrara made his directorial debut with this gory but fascinating horror tale about a troubled artist (played by Jimmy Laine, aka Abel Ferrara). Haunted by bizarre hallucinations and the fear he'll end up a wino like his father, the artist eventually snaps and begins taking out his frustrations on a growing number of homeless people, attacking them with a power drill. In time, his violent obsessions get worse and he begins attacking people closer to him, including an art dealer and a woman he's been dating. Ferarra also wrote several of the songs performed by a punk rock band in the film; he gained greater notoriety with his next film, the cult item Ms. 45. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      First saw this movie somewhere online and was not too impressed with the video quality. I bought this version and wow I was so glad the picture was so clear. If you are a fan of grind house movies check this one out. It is a little out there.

      Starts out a little slow, but when it gets going it's pretty bloody and Gorey! Definitely a b movie classic
