Unexpectedly Stylish and Unusual Movie Feb. 28 2010
By Compay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Circle of Eight was an interesting little movie that wasn't shot for DVD, but for the web. The film is a cooperative effort between Paramount Pictures, Mountain Dew, and Myspace that was part of an online series. The DVD, however, is a bit different from the online version.

I'm big on visuals, so I was happy with the directing job by Stephen Cragg, who mostly shot for television in the past. The colors and lighting are great, and the editing is fresh and different, like watching an episode of The Shield or a music video. The movie was shot in the former Linda Vista Hospital, which is supposedly a haunted building. In any case, the apartment building that serves as the setting is definitely dark and foreboding. I also enjoyed the movie's score, which ranged from upbeat rock and electronic, to haunting melodies.

As far as the story, it's difficult to get into details without spoiling it. There's a mystery that pulls you in from the very beginning, and even though the concept has been done before (by both Eric Bress and Harold Ramis), it's still a decent surprise. The movie scores points by not making the conclusion too obvious, although I thought they tried a little too hard to make some of the characters quirky. As a side note, I know this was co-produced by Mountain Dew, but the product placement was just a little too overt.

Bottom line: the film gets confusing at times, but it's still more entertaining than other straight-to-video movies. The film's ending leaves room for interpretation, so it's worth checking this movie out to form your own conclusion.

thanks to the good folks at mountain dew... Jan. 28 2012

Circle of Eight (2009), a suspense thriller that originally appeared as a multi part "movie" on MySpace, is a very oddly paced, surrealistic journey that makes almost no logical sense. Set in a gloomy apartment building (actually a former hospital), the film features some weird and creepy characters that initially may raise your curiosity, but as the story progresses, they tend to become increasingly irritating, as you get the uneasy feeling that the movie will not end very well. Sponsored by Mountain Dew, the production also includes some interesting product placement.

It's New Years Eve, and Jennifer (Austin Highsmith) is moving into an apartment building called the Dante located somewhere in LA's art district. She arrives in reasonably good spirits, but that soon changes when she meets Ed (John Bishop) the building's creepy manager, who operates from a desk located inside a freight elevator, and cryptically warns Jessica not to enter the file room.

Jennifer enters her eighth floor apartment, and almost immediately begins receiving visits from what seems to be nearly every resident of the building. The parade includes Randall (D.J. Quails) is a nerdy type, who walks around with a video camera, because he is filming a documentary of the building. India (Natashia Williams) a model, and her boyfriend Damon (Jesse Johnson), drop by to invite Jennifer to a party that will be held on the roof later that night. Bale (Josh Kelly) and Elaine (Katie Lowes), a married couple who are expecting a child, also stop by to say hi. And rounding out the group of eight is Evan (Ryan Doom) an artist who finds Jennifer in the bath, after entering her apartment unannounced, and seems overly concerned that Jessica understands that she can trust him.

There is tragedy in Jennifer's past. As events unfold, almost nothing she does makes any logical sense, as she sees the dead bodies of her neighbors, which then mysteriously disappear. She visits Evan's apartment, and is so impressed by his unusual artwork, that she finds herself flat on her back on his light table, with Evan on top of her, when he abruptly changes his mind about making love.

While visiting the off limits supply room, Jessica discovers a clue to what may be happening. With increasing frequency, Evan shows up wherever she turns. All this madness builds up to not one, but two endings to the film. Listening to the awful dialog twice, and experiencing some terrible acting is an ordeal, but at least there is a resolution to the story, although it may be unsatisfying.

Circle of Eight is a curiosity that veers away from reality early, and never attempts to get back. Little that happens inside the Dante makes sense, and the film generates more feelings of frustration and exasperation, rather than scares. With a cast of eclectic and often irritating characters, this film will probably be a major disappointment to those looking for straight horror or suspense. The issues lie squarely with the writing, rather than the actors.

The plot gets maddeningly repetitious at the close, as Evan appears again and again, sprouting the most insane dialog. Although the actors may have had a blast playing such goofy characters, the result is not as enjoyable for the viewer who is presented with a weak story, and insubstantial characters that you have little reason to care about. Production values are decent, contributing to a rating of 2.5 stars.

The Circle of LAME! Oct. 18 2010
By Zoe Paris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A young, attractive woman moves into creepy loft apartment...SO many cool things could have been done with this beginning but NO, we get some fake looking dead people, strange neighbors who randomly walk in and out of her apartment sharing their life story, some creepy "File Room" and creepy manager and just a generally weird, nonsense plot. It is kind of a shame because the ambiance would have set a great stage for a really cool horror movie! But we don't get a horror movie...we just get a horrible movie!

There was a lack of character development and everyone just seems superficial. We never get an idea of who these people are, including the main character. The dialogue and the pace of this movie seem awkward too. The 'suspense' doesn't seem suspenseful enough. All the events are leading up to this New Year's 'party' on the roof and yet I really didn't care. There wasn't anything scary enough to build fear and dread, just some creepy music...and then...the 'gore' if you can call it that looks fake and obvious and it fails to shock. It looks like some people using movie props to play a prank.

The ending is more of a romance movie/drama ending and is more depressing than scary. If you have seen the movie "The Sixth Sense" and the movie "Groundhog Day" you probably will figure out the ending. The only difference is those were GOOD movies! The setting is good and I think the actors were probably decent too...but they didn't have a good script to work with or good direction. The only thing of real value I found in this movie was the recipe to make Mt Dew glow in the dark. I haven't tried the mixture out yet but if it doesn't glow I will have one more reason to dislike this movie!
Great Movie... if you remember that it was originally a game April 27 2015
By Kasey Benton - Published on Amazon.com
This was not created to be on DVD so it's not as good when you watch it that way. I think that's why it has just as many bad reviews as it does good ones. It was originally a project put together by Paramount Pictures, Mountain Dew, Myspace, and Deviantart. When this movie was first released it wasn't just posted to MySpace or somewhere as a whole. When it was released it wasn't a movie it was actually more of a mini series and you had type in codes or phrases you learned from Mountain Dew bottles or Deviantart. When you put them in they either unlocked special content (mostly clues or games that had hits about what was going on in the "movie") or (once a week) it would unlock the next episode. There were also two alternate endings that you could get based on the codes you interned and games you won. That is why the "movie" is paced so oddly and isn't as good if you just watch it how it is in the DVD version. Without the game it isn't as good, but if you were lucky enough to play it like I was this is a great movie that you become quite sentimental about lol cause you had to work so hard to actually see the ending. I didn't like the original ending, but the alternate was awesome. I'm not going to go into the plot though cause I don't want to ruin it.
HIGH RISE HORROR March 17 2011
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You know right from the start what this movie's twist is, so you just go along wondering when our heroine wakes up and smells the ectoplasm.
Ostensibly a ghost story, the movie is actually a study in choices--what would happen if we made different choices and how those choices affect others.
While CIRCLE OF EIGHT is nothing special, it managed to hold my attention without ticking me off. Perpetual nerd DJ Qualls has a small role and once again sets the standard for quirky actors.
Should please GHOST WHISPERER devotees.
