Exclusive trailer: “PAINKILLERS” messes with military minds


We gave you the first look at photos from the upcoming sci-fi thriller PAINKILLERS here, and now we’ve got the exclusive debut of the movie’s trailer, which you can see past the jump.

Arriving on DVD and digital January 12 from RLJ Entertainment, PAINKILLERS was directed by Peter Winther and stars Tahmoh Penikett, Lesley-Ann Brandt, SMALLVILLE’s Erica Durance, STORM OF THE CENTURY’s Colm Feore, Julia Voth and Rick Bognar. The synopsis: “A squad of marines sent on a classified mission deep in the wartorn mountains of Afghanistan finds the mysterious item they were sent for…but 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.”
