The Driller Killer Gets Blu-ray Premiere
Arrow Video Release in the US and UK
Abel Ferrara's The Driller Killer (1979) was one of the titles during the British video nasty era that had to be slightly censored (see comparison) in order to get the permission to be released. In 2002, it eventually got uncut through the BBFC. On November 28th/29th, 20106, Arrow Video will release the British and American Blu-ray premiere of the film.
