| An endurance test in how much boring filler you can withstand
The plot: A crazy serial killer believes that he can harness the power of his victim's souls through ritual murder.

Circle had a premise that, in capable hands, could rise to become an above-average genre movie, perhaps memorable for its outlandish ideas or graphic violence. In the hands of this inept crew, however, it turns into a horrible, boring, tedious, and stupid movie. I can not stress how boring and uneventful this movie is. Insipid dialogue, delivered without conviction or interest, takes up roughly half the runtime, while ridiculous filler takes up the remaining half. It's mind-numbingly boring. In the last few minutes, there's finally some action, but it happens so late in the movie, you'll probably be asleep. And then the movie abruptly ends. Now, I'm not saying that I wanted the movie to go on any longer, but the ending seems to serve as nothing but an open-ended cop-out, leaving open the possibility of a sequel. I can only hope that nobody is stupid enough to finance a sequel to this crap.

There's a bit of sex, violence, and nudity, but it's so inept that you'd be better off looking for fan-made films on YouTube. I can't see any reason at all to watch this.
