Cannes 2018: Character Posters Released For PAINKILLERS

Out of the Cannes Film Festival and Market comes character posters for Painkillers, the second feature from Roxy Shih. The film follows a surgeon who, after a car accident, will go to any lengths to reduce the constant pain his body undergoes every waking moment.

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.

It was written and produced by Giles Daoust of Title Media. Executive producers are Mike Macari, Catherine Demunceaux, and Alain Berliner.
