In 50 Words… Circle (2015)

CIRCLE (2015)

Directed by: Aaron Hann, Mario Miscione

Starring: Julie Benz, Mercy Malik, Carter Jenkins

Taggart Productions, Votiv Films

A group of fifty strangers wake up in a dark chamber, unable to recall how they got there. One by one, they are executed by a bolt of electricity that emanates from a sphere in the center of the room. The victims are not chosen at random, but by the captives themselves through a strange voting system. Strategy and prejudice will determine a lone survivor. Circle is an interesting film and would make a great game show. The concept; How much do we value another persons life in comparison to our own? As the film progresses, it unfortunately becomes somewhat predictable. This is a dialogue driven film, which takes away from the suspense. A little action would have gone far. Pretty well written with some good acting. Tries to keep us guessing but falls a little short, but I do admire the concept.  3/5 Bloody Moons

  1. What lost me in this film was Eric;it was obvious that he was up to something throughout the film so the results when it came down to him,the little girl,and the pregnant woman didn’t surprise me much.It seemed to me though that once he was released he sought out the next group which also contained a pregnant woman and a child.This leaves me to wonder if he was working with the aliens in their little experiment.
