The uncut version of Abel Ferrara's directorial debut, which became infamous for being banned as a 'video nasty' in the early 1980s. Struggling New York artist Reno (Ferrara) is very much down on his luck: his desperate attempts to complete a painting for sale are frustrated by the punk band next door rehearsing 24 hours a day and the activities of his girlfriend and her lesbian lover. Unable to face up to the situation, Reno goes on a murderous rampage, dispatching his victims with an electric drill.
