The first images have arrived for Roxy Shih’s (Dark/Web, The Tribe) Painkillers following its international premiere at Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF).
Painkillers, the thriller from Title Media and Lone Suspect, stars Mischa Barton (Sixth Sense), Adam Huss (Power), Madeline Zima (Twin Peaks), Grant Bowler (True Blood), Debra Wilson (Mad TV), and “American Horror Story” actress Naomi Grossman (interview).
In the film, “After a terrible car crash in which his son dies, brilliant surgeon John Clarke, tormented by guilt, becomes prey to an unbearable physical pain. While his marriage starts disintegrating, John soon finds out that the only thing that can ease his pain is the taste of human blood. When he encounters Herb Morris, a man who claims he can help him get his life back, John embarks upon a nightmarish journey through which he will either have to come to terms with his pain… or become a monster.”
Luke Barnett and Vincent Masciale are producing under their Lone Suspect banner alongside Giles Daoust and Catherine Dumonceaux of Title Media. Mike Macari (The Ring franchise) and Alain Berliner (My Life in Pink) are executive producing.
