3.0 out of 5 stars A different and well-made B-movie horror 29 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
It seems that there has been an influx in low-budget horror films of late, and the go-to genre is the Zombie apocalypse. Thankfully a few low budget horrors have drawn there inspirations from other avenues, like the body-horror of "Splinter". "Needle" has chosen to eschew the undead in favour of a story centered on voodoo technology with a hint of Clive Barker's seminal Hellraiser.

It's a solid film that may not bear frequent re-watching, but its the kind of film I'd stick with if it came on television.

I'd like to see more from this production team.

Far better than the Hellraiser rip-off I expected.
The opening is not particularly startling, but it intruigues enough to grip, and when we fast forward to the present and meet main character Ben and his friends, they're all just well characterised and played enough to stand out from the usual slasher fodder. As a result, you care just a little more when someone bites the dust.
Archeology student Ben has pretty much moved on after the death of his father when he gets an unwelcome visit from his estranged brother Marcus trying to make amends, and receives one last heirloom - a strange box that no-one can figure out. Almost as quickly as it appears, it's been stolen, and people he cares about start dying in nasty, very bloody ways...
Needle is interesting because it plays the murder mystery card more heavily than most slashers, which are normally just concerned with ways to up the body count. Instead Needle has the heroes pursue the case while they try to deal with their sibling issues, in between brutal murder scenes.
The plot device is fun and allows for some inventive demises, and the leads play their roles better than usual. In addition, the plot is nicely staged - and while it's not completely unpredictable it has enough nice moments and red herrings to keep you very entertained.
A fine example of modern Aussie horror, and an above average 'college kids' slasher flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars This film is well worth watching 12 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I happened onto this movie by chance and I thought it was excellent. The writer may have been inspired - so I read - by teen horror films, this one is innovative and well presented. There are clues to the killer, and there are red herrings, but - the gore apart, which I never really go for - I thought this was that oddity, an intelligent horror film. I'd strongly recommend it.

By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on the basis of a few good reviews on Amazon. They were wrong. I'm right. Trust me.

The supernatural premise is basically a macguffin. There's this magic box, see, and you have to insert a photo of your victim, add some drops of your blood and a somewhat larger quantity of molten wax, turn a key to start it, wait for it to whir for a few moments and then out pops a wax voodoo doll for you stab, maim, or mutilate according to taste. Congratulations! You now have the means to commit a perfect untraceable stabbing/maiming/mutilating/ murder.

So basically this is another teen slasher and there is plenty of teen slashing. Yes, there is plenty of gore as our unseen slasher has lots of fun usually intercut with shots of the victim and shots of what's being done with the voodoo doll. However, as the killer is not in the same place as the victim there's little sense of menace and none of the one on one brutality normally associated with a slasher.

Ah yes, the story, what little there is of it. It's set on an Australian university campus and revolves around a group of twenty year olds, one of whom receives the magic box from his dead father's estate and it gets stolen almost immediately.

I was pretty sure I knew who did it before the killings even started. Slasher rule 1: if it's one of a group it's always the one who seems the least likely. So I sat through this not very impressive movie waiting for confirmation. Except I forgot Alternative Slasher Rule 1: if it's not the one who seems the most likely, then it's the one you never even considered because there was completely no point. Okay, okay, I got it wrong.

Not for the first time recently, I thought the 18 certificate was rather harsh. While gory, it's not brutal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good. 4 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
I quite enjoyed Needle.
It's nice to see something different from the norm in horror films these days, and this is a very good attempt. It draws a little from the Hellraiser films, but overall it was very enjoyable.
There's some strong acting, and the plot is good enough to stand up against much of what is out there now.
