PIERCING

de Nicolas Pesce

Synopsis

To shake off a recurring fantasy where he murders his baby with an ice pick, Reed decides he has to kill someone. So he takes Sharon Stone’s favorite weapon and goes to a motel where a prostitute he’s called will soon appear. Everything is perfectly planned out, except nothing will turn out the way Reed thought it would in this psycho-thriller based on a novel by Ry? Murakami (who might sound familiar from Audition).
