Quotes

Shane: Sleeping bags. Me and Ronnie, we used to sleep out in the backyard in a tent, and every time it wasn't raining we'd be like all over the place. Ronnie would sneak back in the house and steal eggs and we'd nail houses with them. And Ronnie would be like do whatever you want, I'm just gonna lie here and listen to the crickets. I'd be like okay, just for one minute. And boom, I'd be out. I'd wake up. It'd be the next morning.

Worship The Father
17 April 2004 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

B. C. B is an interesting little movie about Kyle a teenager that moves to another town and starts hanging out with the local "bad boys". The gang call themselves Black Circle Boys and are into worshiping Satan and Gothic culture while doing heavy drugs and wrecking havoc in school. Kyle has a huge trauma about a friend's death and soon he forms a close relationship with Shane the boss of the movement. However things begin to go wrong as Shane goes deeper and deeper in his love for chaos and Kyle decides to leave. The problem is no one leaves the brotherhood.

Scott Bairstow and Eric Mabius are both equally good with strong performances that hold the movie together. The direction's independent style gives the movie personality and a more 'reality' feel to it.

BCB manages to be quite creepy at times and keeps you interested with a good story and nicely written characters. It however fails in giving us a proper ending. The conclusion is rather disappointing and takes much away from the movie's overall value.

Still mainly because of the cast and the mysticism behind the Gothic world BCB still provides some entertainment.

It deserves a chance.
