NotesI am dubious about including this film. For me it's low budget dross from a director who has a cult following. The story is of an (unsuccessful) artist. His masterpiece is an uncompleted painting of a buffalo whose sale will he hopes pay the rent. The rent can't be much since he shares a seamy appartment with two lesbian drug addicts. Apparently because his surrounding get to him he goes off kilter and starts killing derelicts with a portable drill. This being 1979 before there were truly portable drills he uses an AC powered drill with a "Pot-O-Pak". Such resourcefullness creates a lot of blood but a combination of bad photography, loose direction and awful acting result in a really bad film. http://www.bigzines.com/eccentricity/hardlywood/reviews1.htm#driller
