#SummerOfSlash 2017: The Driller Killer

We’re dipping into the video nasties once again for an Abel Ferrara classic: The Driller Killer. This movie was first brought to my attention when we talked about the Arrow Video Blu-ray release (which you can buy below). It was the first time I’d ever heard of Abel Ferrara. And to be honest, we mocked it relentlessly. And then I watched it. It’s… you just have to watch it. It’s 70s NYC, hot, sweaty, ridiculous. Oh, and marvelous.

If you haven’t seen the movie The Driller Killer is about a visual artist in NYC who starts to feel the stresses of a deadline. He combats those stresses by purchasing the latest and greatest invention (as advertised in the movie): a fanny pack battery pack. He then plugs an electric drill into it and storms the streets of New York to kill the homeless. And that’s it.

For your own DIY Driller Killer set, just purchase these things…

Or buy a cordless drill… Or don’t kill anyone. But you SHOULD buy the Blu-ray from Arrow Video.
