Movie Info

When Los Angeles newcomer Jessica (Austin Highsmith) moves into a historic downtown apartment building populated by amiable, twenty-something bohemians, she quickly discovers that her new home harbors its fair share of dark secrets. The Dante may not be the most posh apartment complex in town, but what it lacks in style it makes up for in local color. When Jessica moves in, overprotective building manager Ed (John Bishop) offers some helpful tips on getting comfortable and her new neighbors seem unusually accommodating. But why does that camcorder-obsessed creep Randal (DJ Qualls) always have his lens aimed in her direction, and what's the deal with secretive artist Evan (Ryan Doom). Later, the tenants at the Dante begin to die off in the most gruesome of ways, prompting Jessica on a frantic mission to solve the mystery of the eerie building before she too falls prey to its malevolent curse.

...there's a fascinating idea in here somewhere that simply gets lost in all the silliness.

Audience Reviews for Circle of Eight


I heard of this awhile ago via MySpace I think they were doing some test run on there for it, it looked sort of like a horror movie but it's VERY mild if you want to even call it that. It's more of a suspense mystery thriller. That really they should have left it online! I think around 30 minutes into the movie I knew what the ending was going to, more or less be. Our lead character Jessica moves into a large building (which looks like an old hotel or asylum I have seen on one of those haunted places shows) and meets a few of a tenant that have a tendency to just invite themselves in, without knocking or otherwise. One of them a pregnant woman who is just way too perky & pushy has got to be the MOST annoying of the bunch unless the one with the camera always in your face is. Suspenseful yes but predictable.. however if you figure out what it is... still suspenseful D+

Despite a few interesting ideas, and some delightfully odd moments, 'Circle of Eight' suffers from poor direction and hilariously inept screenwriting.

Indie horror movie that just wasn't quite up to snuff. Acting was surprisingly ok. It was more a writing or direction issue. Foreshadowing was a bit too obvious and not really polished in it's mystery and suspense. There was also a lack of build up to the big twist/reveal. The very last ending should have just been left off as it added nothing and was just a bit sappy. At least the sound track was good
