Horror icon Lance Henriksen, beloved by Horror Freaks as the actor who played Bishop in Aliens, has a knack for vastly improving the films he stars in. Just seeing him in the cast is a sign of good things to come. Which is why I’m excited to check out Needlestick, a B-horror throwback that looks like Frankenstein, Flatliners, and Re-Animator tossed into a blender! See the trailer and poster for Needlestick below.
Official Synopsis: The doctor is in! The indie horror-thriller “NEEDLESTICK” stars Lance Henriksen, alongside Michael Traynor (THE WALKING DEAD), Harry Lennix (THE MATRIX Sequels, BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, THE BLACKLIST), Katie Savoy (NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, SEQUESTERED, SHARKTOPUS VS. PTERACUDA), and Jordan Trovillion (JACK REACHER, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF JOHN GOTTI) with a music score by Harry Manfredini (FRIDAY THE 13th) and cinematography by Bryan Greenberg. Filmed entirely in Detroit, the story develops as a young intern (Traynor) who comes to work for his mentor (Henriksen) but uncovers his macabre experiments to lethally extract a cure for aging from unwitting patients.
“NEEDLESTICK” injects stores at Family Video, online at Amazon.com, and video on demand on iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Dish, and numerous other outlets on FEBRUARY 21st!
