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 »

Fantastic thriller with great characters and humor
11 August 2006 | by JakeJarviSee all my reviews

I've seen a lot of low budget thrillers and this one is the best. Fantastic writing and outstanding performances keep the movie constantly moving. The moments of tension are built really nicely but the thing that really took me by surprise was the comedy. Very intelligent humor that draws from what the audience expects, surprises them, and isn't cheap. It's always nice to find a movie that gives the viewers some credit and doesn't play to the lowest common denominator.

Often times when a writer or director casts themselves in a movie it does a great disservice to the picture. But that is not the case with Dave Campfield's performance in this movie. His character provides many of the great comedic moments. If he hadn't pulled it off the movie could have fallen pretty flat.

I really enjoyed this movie. Dave Campfield is a filmmaker to watch.
