MovieStudio Quote >> “It’s gripping, but it’s a story about something very tough to exist!”
In John V. Soto’s Needle, a killer uses an 18th century box with extraordinary and deathly powers to rein havoc on a group of friends at Saint Mary’s College. The box is the size of a jewelry case and when a picture of someone is put into a secret slot, a wax figure of the person is created to where the killer can stick pins, break off limbs and just make life miserable for the person the figure represents.
We get introduced to the box when student Ben Rutherford inherits the relic from his recently deceased father. But before you can say, “Oh my god, I am bored”, the device is stolen and soon an unidentified killer begins to use the machine on Ben’s group of friends leaving them butchered, blind and bleeding with nothing more than a few pin pricks.
Ben (Michael Dorman) and his brother Marcus (Travis Fimmel) figure out the sinister nature of the device and begin a search for the killer while attempting to warn their friends of their impending deadhood.
