Abel Ferrara’s 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, trash, pre-punk and horrific, Driller Killer is a misunderstood film. Ugly and transgressive, it is for open-minded viewers only. The film is a disturbing look into the recesses of a grubby city and a disturbed mind and refuses to make concessions to any notions of good taste or commercial filmmaking.
