"What ?? There's NO MONEY for any effects ?? Okay, So then we ...
16 February 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

-simply just can't show any special effects on screen - doesn't matter"

"Circle": My god, avoid it like the plague: it's disappointing from start to finish. It wants to be a serial killer/slasher movie but it's just plain bad. The cast is not that terrible, but the story is. There's no tension, no excitement and certainly no surprises.

A group of students spent the night in the house of an escaped murderer (Halloween: Resurrection anyone ?) and the killer returns that night. Meanwhile, the police is trying to figure out what his next move is.

"Circle" has a couple of attractive girls who show their breasts (trust me, nothing to be too exciting about) but fails on every other level: it's boring, stupid and just doesn't deliver. The killer is best known for his role in the popular TV series "Prison Break" (as "Haywire" so kind of the same character)He's not interesting at all and is supposed to be scary because of the 'albino' looking eyes. (come on..)

The worst problem is the total lack of any effects or gore. The killings happen mostly off-screen or are simply hardly seen at all. That's right: this is a horror-slasher without a special-effects team (How is that possible ?) and besides a couple of shots of blood you don't see anything at all !

To conclude with the "surprising"-ending: what the hell ? They already discussed this in the movie: As a viewer you know what will happen at the end. And it's once again a major disappointment. But hey, it's finally over and you can totally forget about this garbage.

No idea why they still make junk like this. It really gives the genre a bad name. Just watch something good for the second time instead of this turkey..
