Abel Ferraras 1979 breakthrough is one of his best-known but least appreciated films. The film thwarts any preconceived notions of what a horror movie should be. Glam, thrash, pre-punk and horrific, Driller Killer is a misunderstood film.
The film is a horrifying look into the recesses of a grubby city and a disturbed mind. It refuses to make concessions to any notion of good taste or commercial filmmaking. Ugly and transgressive, it is a corrupting tale of a mind liberated by psychosis by the director of the original Bad Lieutenant. A Video Nasty. Banned in Germany. Banned in England for nearly 20 Years
