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

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 »
Under Surveillance is a carefully crafted murder mystery tale by indie filmmaker David Campfield. He keeps things moody, atmospheric,and tense throughout the entire film. Part of the fun is guessing what will happen next.It pays homage to the films of Hitchcock, with a little Sliver thrown in for extra spice. The movie keeps you glued to your seat until the very end. It makes you think and reflect on human nature in general. What is it about snooping on other people that is so interesting? Everyone plays their lives out differently, and it's human nature to want to observe and learn from that. With a solid cast and very nice cinematography, I recommend Under Surveillance for a night of murder,mystery and intrigue. Keep up the good work Mr. Campfield, I look forward to seeing your future projects.
