The Canadian sci-fi flick Painkillers
comes out on VOD and DVD in the U.S. on January 12th, thanks to RLJ Entertainment. We have an exclusive clip to share with you featuring two of our country's better known exports in the genre circles, Colm Feore and Tahmoh Penikett (BSG
). Feore plays Dr. Troutman and he is interviewing Penikett, a U.S. Marine after his mission went all pear shaped.
PAINKILLERS tells the story of a squad of marines sent on a classified mission deep in the war-torn mountains of Afghanistan, but when they find the mysterious item they were sent for... it's not what they were expecting. The next thing they know, Major Cafferty (Penikett) and the surviving squad members wake-up in a military medical facility with no memory of what happened or even who they are. Using an experimental drug, doctors try to "reboot" the soldiers' memories, but one by one they fall prey to bizarre hallucinations and homicidal fits of rage. Only through snatches of resurfacing memories does Cafferty begin to question the true motives of the hospital staff and discover the shocking, deadly reality behind the otherworldly artifact they found.
was directed by Peter Winther who helped produced a lot of Roland Emmerich's films in the 90s (Stargate
, Independence Da
, and The Patriot
). All his prior directing work was in television.
