Holy shit. I was excited for the man known as John Fallon, aka Arrow from Arrow in the Head, when I found out that he was starring in a new film called Pain Killer, which he also wrote. Fallon’s good people, as they say.
But man, I had no idea it would be making its international premiere at freakin’ Sitges, for God’s sake. Such is the case, however, as Arrow announced in a story yesterday. Pain Killer will be out of competition, as John’s serving on the jury this year (also something very cool), but it will be showing to a host of international filmgoers.
Killer, for those unaware, tells of a man (played by Fallon) who survives his family getting slaughtered and goes on a drug-fueled revenge rampage. Sitges, for those who have not heard of it, is a prestigious festival held in Catalonia that will see the premiere of Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth this year as well. More info on Pain Killer can be found here, more on Sitges here.
And, in case it wasn’t clear by the tone, congrats to everyone involved!
