Director Roxy Shih (who helmed the horror movie The Tribe) is set to helm Painkillers, a new supernatural thriller movie based on a script by Giles Daoust. Here’s a teaser poster:
“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.”
So he’s going to drown his sorrow in fresh human blood? Damn, he’s going full vampire!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
