Bone Daddy (also known as Palmer s Bones and L affaire Palmer) is a 1998 Canadian-American crime thriller film directed by Mario Azzopardi and starring Rutger Hauer and Barbara Williams. The film has become a cult classic due to the graphic bone removal scenes.


Doctor Palmer, a former pathologist, wrote a fictional book based on his real cases. In the book, the madman gets caught, but in reality he is still uncaught. After the book is released, Palmer s editor is kidnapped. Palmer soon is sent a present containing a page of his book, and a bone from his editor. Together with the police, Palmer tries to find his editor, who might still be alive. In addition, his own son becomes one of the main suspects.
