“An impressive film which has made the absolute best of its key elements”
– Keri O’Shea / Warped Perspective

“[A film] which those in the know will enthusiastically discuss and dissect.”
– Michael Flett / Geek Chocolate

 

“Adopts recognisable genre elements and defamiliarises them by turning them on their head or sending them down odd narrative pathways. — The result is a low-key journey into the uncanny, where a ragtag ensemble of hypnotists, technicians, psychics and ancient creatures work together to restore to this world (and to the next) a balance that perhaps never – or perhaps always – exists. Along the way, Black Circle – which prominently features celluloid reels and even, in late scenes, an actual cinema – confronts us with the anxiety-inducing possibility that when we watch films, we may be relinquishing control and losing a part of ourselves. In short, the five chapters of this spinning psychodrama combine to mess with your head, leaving their haunting trace from the parallel plane that is cinema.” – Anton Bitel / SciFi Now
