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.

The build-up for the film is good and the acting is strong, but it becomes a run of the mill slasher flick
29 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

"Black Circle Boys" seems promising enough. It's about a group of devil worshipping band members led by the devilish Eric Mabius who take in an outcast (Scott Bairstow), broken by the death of his best friend. The kid is cool with them, often taking bad drugs and p***ing off people, until he starts seeing their more violent sides. The film is worth watching for the strong performances from the cast, the script is realistic for the first two-thirds, and the low budget, grainy look makes things more creepier. The problem with the film is that the after an hour and fifteen minutes into the film, the screenwriter had no idea what to do with "Black Circle Boys" and turns into a silly slasher flick, with all of the typical horror movie cliches thrown in. The ending especially is a big cop-out for what seems like a great film. Overall, I recommend it for late night viewing, and if you're into independent films, it's a very interesting one, but the finale of the film is a big letdown and left me disappointed.
