Critic Reviews for Painkillers

All Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • Before getting carried away, if it sounds like this is a great film, it's no Near Dark but it's much better than expected.

  • 'Painkillers' certainly does not reinvent the wheel when it comes to the physicality or emotional presence of pain and suffering. [It] definitely works on the nerves and reinforces a certain kind of fixation that is more than imagined or hallucinatory.

    February 7, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Star Adam Huss is better than the script in this incomplete vampires-as-junkies tale.

    February 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Painkillers, which makes a bold effort to take on this large and complex subject, not always getting it right but, overall, acquitting itself pretty well.
