review by
Mike Haberfelner

Renn (Aaron Krygier) is a successful enough artist to open a show on the strength of his name, he has a nice home, a beautiful wife, Carol (Jillian Geurts), and his agent Abel (Stephen Jakiel) tries everything to keep the money flowing his way, albeit not out of pure selflessness. True, Renn's art is nightmarish, but that's part of his appeal. What nobody knows is that Renn is indeed a deeply troubled soul with homicidal tendencies, something that's embodied in a mysterious woman (Veronica Knightly) who's his partner in crime who pushes him on in whatever he's doing, but whom only he can see. Being not in the best state of mind, Renn becomes obsessed with a home shopping TV show where an inept host (Andy Rich) tries to sell an impractical driller to his audience - but like so many other things, that show might only be in Renn's head. The driller however is real, and he first uses it on an arrogant client's (Sarah Jeanne) eyes - and he even gets away with it. But that first murder only leads to more violence and deaths, though it becomes increasingly unclear to Renn what's real and what's only going on in his head, and what's art and what's just plain wrong ...

 

In a way, Rust Belt Driller is a perfect throwback to an era of more relentless horror of the grindhouse variety where showing more was actually more, and Driller Killer and even some Herschell Gordon Lewis movies, especially Color Me Blood Red and Wizard of Gore, readily spring to mind, due to this movie's rather explicit nature and also its welcome predilection for practical effects. That all said though, describing Rust Belt Driller merely as an hommage to yesteryear or an old school piece of gore cinema would be selling it short, as the film really comes into its own as a nightmarish experience with artistic ambitions that go far beyond just shocking its audience, and thus the movie relies at least as much on its rather labyrinthine, deeply disturbing story and on creating a creepy, slightly unearthly atmosphere as on its gore effects. And Aaron Krygier's central performance is fittingly unsettling, and he's supported by a solid ensemble. And all of this makes this movie one rather insane trip - in the best of possible ways.
