      Joshua Blackman FILMINK (Australia) While it may not be innovative or stylistically impressive, this modest horror flick still delivers decent scares. Jul 25, 2011 Full Review Andrew L. Urban Urban Cinefile Taking a fresh twist on the college campus serial killer sub genre of horror, John V. Soto delivers an engaging and well executed supernatural thriller in which mechanical voodoo (not the hip hop band) is the weapon of choice for the killer Jul 23, 2011 Full Review Simon Foster sbs.com.au To the film's credit, it lacks the smug self-awareness that predominates the modern teen horror genre, but that commitment to integrity gives Needle a retro familiarity that the key demographic may find a little too quaint.

      Lesley E Not a bad concept, but this movie is overall a typical run of the mill low budget slasher flick. 2 things that bother me about this picture; why do the 2 protagonist have to pretend to be American (listening to those 2 guys trying to pull off an American accent is cringeworthy to say the least). There's nothing wrong with an Australian accent - you don't have to fake an American accent to try and be appealing to an American audience. Also the other thing that bothers me is Michael Dorman and Travis Fimmel's acting. I know this is a budget film, but these 2 need a bit of work with their acting skills. If they were young, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt, but these 2 were in their early 30's and late 20's when this picture was released so there's really no excuse for their poor performance (especially Michael Dorman's acting during the climax scene toward the end). Final verdict: 2 and half stars. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Hot Aussie cast, pretty juicy, a bit silly, and badly acted. An enjoyable bit of horror fluff that starts to get a bit dull and I drifted off halfway through. The killer is a complete twot. Their reasoning blows in my eyes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Why can't Australians just be Australian? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Nothing new and nothing exciting, but an easy enough watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Here's my review via my blog https://multiscreenmotivision.wordpress.com/2015/02/19/sewing-suspense-and-horror-with-needle/ Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review william s More thriller than horror but just enough thrills to warrant a one time watch....just do not over think it.
