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, All Movie Guide

Strange film, Hilarious commentary(best I've ever heard!!!) by lotusnug May 16, 2003 - 2:59 AM PDT

Trust me fans of Abel,this movie's commentary
is priceless. Abel sounds out of it & or trashed
throughout the whole film, speaking about his film
in ways NO other directors before or after him will.
In my book, this is the ultimate directors' commentary. Never boring, and on the edge, much like most of his films. Tony Coca-Cola is the other
reason I love this film. Too bad we never saw him
in anything else, he too, is gone throughout this whole thing and it's hilarious. Great film.
