Storyline

After ten years, Justin Besler has moved back with his father. But his father's house isn't as Justin remembered. It's been renovated to support three apartments, housing somewhat shady neighbors. So when the victim of a cult killing turns up on his property, Justin grows increasingly suspicious of his new housemates. That's when Rick, a questionable friend, talks Justin into using pinhole surveillance cameras on the apartment residents. But the deeper Justin and his friends dig, the more they put their own lives in danger. Written by Rick Varlin <sunofsun@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The cult featured in the film, the Black Circle, was based on an actual group. In 1984, in Northport, Long Island, a few High School dropouts formed a cult named the Knights of the Black Circle. Two of its members, who were both heavily involved in drugs, brutally murdered one of their friends when he refused to profess allegiance to Satan. Their story became the basis of the book, "Say You Love Satan". Incidentally, the exteriors of the Besler house were shot in Northport, only one block away from the crime scene itself. See more »

Inventive, Entertaining Thriller
10 August 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw Under Surveillance at the Cleveland Indie Gathering film festival and was very impressed.

The film is clever, very well presented, and most importantly has a sense of fun lacking in many other films. The use of space and digital photography really shine, creating a moody atmosphere rarely visually present in DV film-making.

Though the opening is slow in a classic sort of way, and there are some confusing bits, Under Surveillance is well worth the watch. Some parts are absolutely brilliant, and the film is definitely entertaining. (It also seems Mr. Campfield might have an acting career ahead of him). Check it out if you get the chance!
