We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who gave to our crowd-funding campaign, who helped us with screenings (by showing the film or showing up to watch), who reviewed our film, who gave us awards, and who generally supported us over the last 3 years.
If you enjoyed the film, please share with the horror fans in your life.
You have our undying appreciation for everything that you’ve done. When it comes to expressing our gratitude…we can never do enough.
Jerry Janda (PAINKILLER’s writer/producer/co-star) shares some thoughts about his directorial debut in this latest blog post about KAISHAKUNIN (a short film that he also wrote and is co-producing).
PAINKILLER has received three nominations for 2015 HorrorHound Weekend Film Fest awards: best director (Jeremiah Kipp), best actress (Kelly Rae LeGault), and best short.
The film screening and award ceremony all take place on Saturday, March 21, at the HorrorHound Weekend event in Cincinnati.
Want to find out why the film received so many nominations — and why critics are calling it a must-see short? Then watch it! You can order the DVD, download the video, or rent it. See for yourself why PAINKILLER has garnered so much praise and attention.
Attention supporters and friends of PAINKILLER: The wait is almost over! We have DVDs. We have T-shirts and posters. We’ve even set up a Vimeo VOD page where people can rent or download the film. We plan to start shipping to our donors within a week, and we’ll also officially announce the release of the film — just in time for Halloween!
Thanks for your patience and support. It won’t be much longer now!
Editing on PAINKILLER is complete, and we now have a finished film!
Thanks to all of you who supported this project. If you made a donation, you’ll receive a message soon with details on what you can expect in the near future. Depending on what you donated, you’ll receive recognition in the credits, a copy of the DVD, a T-shirt, and/or a poster autographed by our cast and crew.

That’s it for now. But remember: PAINKILLER is coming soon!
We’re happy to report excellent postproduction progress on PAINKILLER! Our awesome editor, Jeffrey S. Gould (also our director of photography and an executive producer), has been putting in long hours, logging footage, editing, color grading, as well as creating visual effects to enhance the film. This is the beginning of the collaborative process that will include our sound designer and composer, Barbara J. Weber, as well as director Jeremiah Kipp and Jerry Janda (writer, executive producer, and co-star). We can’t wait for you to see the end result. For now, here’s a taste of what’s to come!
Jeremiah Kipp recently joined a panel of directors on the Horror Happens Radio Show for a round-table discussion about their experiences, their work, the horror genre, and indie filmmaking.
Jeremiah shared his opinions on a variety of subjects, chatted about his projects, and talked a little about directing PAINKILLER.
No genre fan will want to miss the lively, insightful conversations featuring some of the most creative talent in indie horror today.
Give the replay a listen!
More positive press for our talented director, Jeremiah Kipp!
FANGORIA has published an overview of his current projects — including PAINKILLER.
Check out his take on the film at the FANGORIA Web site, and learn more about other cool stuff coming from Jeremiah.
We have T-shirts! The shirts feature the image from our movie poster, and they look great!
These T-shirts are part of the perk packages that we offered during the crowd-funding campaign. Supporters who donated $100 or more will receive a shirt, along with a DVD and poster signed by the cast and crew, later this year.
Thanks to everyone who helped make Painkiller possible!
