RUST BELT DRILLER (2021) Reviews and overview of insane artist movie



‘Urban decay… of the mind’

Rust Belt Driller is a 2021 American horror film about an artist who becomes gradually descends into madness.

Directed by Tilke Hill and David R. Williams (Red Scream Vampyres; Red Scream Nosferatu; FrightWorld) from a screenplay written by Aaron Krygier who also stars.

The Razor Wire Alchemy-Hi Glennn Films co-production also stars Jillian Geurts, Veronica Knightly, Stephen Jakiel, Sarah Jeanne, Derek Powell, Andy Rich and Anthony Pacella.


Renn Maxwell (Aaron Krygier) seems to have everything going for him. He has a manager that cares, he’s good enough at his craft (visual art) to have private gallery screenings. He seems to live in a nice looking house and he has a committed, streetwise, and beautiful partner in Carol.

However, Renn has been followed all his life by something dark. And now with the chaos of the modern world, and his own inner horrors, that evil has finally got close enough to reach out and touch. What follows in the next few days will paint the city of Buffalo, NY a whole new canvas, mostly flowing red…


“The bloody special effects are very well done, and the camera lingers on the big industrial drill pounding into the flesh of Renn’s victims […] Hill, Williams, and Krygier have no boundaries on this film, nor should they. The filmmakers and their cast are unapologetically diving into the Grindhouse vibe and genre fans will be pleased.” The Movie Review
