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

Fresh and fun horror film
25 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched most of the horrors at Screamfest and I saw this with my BFFs. I was impressed with the look of Needle...visually its pretty much perfect...definitely not a film for the hardcore gorehounds, as there isn't much blood, instead there are some good scares with some cool spfx...two of the kills were impressive.

I really enjoyed this film for two main reasons, firstly it uses a new killing device/machine which i've never seen in a horror film before and secondly because of the great acting. I have seen Travis Fimmel in the Beast and he's way better in Needle...the other actors are great too.

My ratings are as follows;

Story - 8/10 Acting - 8/10 Visual - 9/10 Efx - 7/10 Score - 7/10 Blood & gore - 6/10

I guess overall I'd give it an 8.

Definitely worth seeing, I can't wait for the DVD!
