excellent and chilling film

PAINKILLER is a tense and chilling look into the world of biological tampering and the results that come from it. This short film from writer Jerry Janda and director Jeremiah Kipp explores a danger that seems all to real in the world of big business pharmaceutical production. They took me back to the days of watching the great horror anthology films like ASYLUM, and creepy nights watching THE NIGHT GALLERY from under the covers. The makers of this film manage to hook you in from the very start and keep you on the edge until the credits roll. Thriller and horror fans will find just what the doctor ordered with a prescription for this PAINKILLER. I look forward to seeing more work from this talented cast and crew.
