This circle is a zero.
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Uninteresting tale of a nutjob who escapes a psycho ward after 9 years, thanks perhaps in part to the leniency and thrall of the doctor there who thinks he's a "genius". However, not before he kills 5 other patients, arranging them in a semi-circle seated and tied to chairs. Seems that the crazo believes that if he arranges his victims in a half circle and that their numbers somehow correspond to 432 (something to do with Pythagoras and ancient Greek ideas, I dunno) the accumulated energy of their deaths will allow him to see their souls or some such sh!t.

In the mean time some psychology students are sent out to the whackjob's former home for some kind of field study trip wherein they're supposed to get into the mind of the psycho by studying his habitat (I think you know where this is going). They don't know that the loony they're studying --or are supposed to be-- is out and about and headed home while they're goofing off and vacationing at his house.

After the murders and escape, the cop who caught the fruitloop 9 years ago is back on the job but this time has to contend with a female FBI agent who has been authorized to head the case. So there's a little friction there but nothing serious; they eventually start getting along as they try desperately to find out where the basketcase went.

I found the movie boring basically because nothing creative, surprising, or interesting happens. After the 5 murders at the outset (and we only see one since the other 4 were already dead where the movie begins), nothing else of note happens for almost an hour, less 3 or 4 minutes. Up until then the 3 male and female students never say or do anything interesting. Studying the nut site for clues to his personality, or an education in general, is the last thing that one guy and one girl have on their minds. They would rather make out --which I'm not against if it's erotically interesting-- but, alas! it was not. Just some stupid, dull, clumsy fumbling in a van where the girl maniacally implores the guy to say he loves her. At this point, I'm wondering if she too didn't escape some mental institution. While that's going on there is another couple who spend time talking about their relationship and the camera alternates between the 2 scenes. That leaves another guy and girl but they're not doing anything together, or anything interesting either. The guy here has a little camera which he occasionally uses to shoot scenes more boring than the movie he's in. Avoid. Love, Boloxxxi.
