When someone gives you a creepy box with mysterious writing on the lid, perhaps you should just leave well enough alone. John V. Soto’s upcoming horror outing “Needle” is structured like every other slasher on the market, though from the looks of the trailer provided below, the acting, direction, and production values seem a little more polished than the most of the films that fall into this wonky subgenre. Of course, any film that provides an abundance of gore is probably going to get a viewing in my demented household, simply because I’m a sucker for pictures that aren’t shy about spilling copious amount of blood. Yes, I’m sick. Yes, I’m twisted. Isn’t that the way you like it? That’s what I thought.
Here’s a short synopsis to set the stage:
A college student inherits an 18th Century machine with deadly supernatural powers. When the machine goes missing and his friends start dying, the student must team with his estranged brother to find the thief and stop the killings.
As of this writing, “Needle” doesn’t have a release date, though I’m almost positive this thing will see the light of day before the end of the year. If you’re still curious, check out the preview embedded below. And if you’re at work, be sure to take the proper precautions beforehand. You can thank me later.
