Storyline

After the death of his father, archaeology student Ben Rutherford inherits an 18th century mechanical device known as "Le Vaudo Mort". At a college party he flaunts the machine in front of a group of his closest friends and later discovers that the machine has a sinister past and may harbor supernatural powers. After class he returns to his dorm room to find that the contraption has been stolen. One by one, Ben's friends begin to die in strange and horrific circumstances. Now he must reunite with his estranged half-brother, Marcus, a forensic photographer, and delve deeper into their father's past to work out who is behind the grisly murders. As the terror mounts and the clues seem to suggest the unthinkable, a surprising twist will reveal the true identity of the killer... Written by Filmscope Entertainment

decent killings
25 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Needle is one of those so-called horror flicks that you easily can watch with your teenagers. It is not all about the red stuff or a slasher or whatsoever. It's more about who's the killer. Oh yes, there are a few red herrings but still, it's more a thriller than a horror.

Was it bad, no it wasn't because some killings were rather good and even one is a bit gory but the ending was really a bit of a letdown. This was John V. Soto second feature and it was okay. the reason I bought it was because my wife is a huge 'V' fan and Jane Badler is one of those V icons that appear here in this flick. She did well although some did give a mediocre performance.

But overall it wasn't a flick that you will tell about the next day as to say this is a must see. It's one to warm up just before you are going to watch the real stuff.
