HASH(0x9ad65e58) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9acf060c) out of 5 stars thanks to the good folks at mountain dew... Jan. 28 2012
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

HASH(0x9acd47b0) out of 5 stars Unusual horror flick with an non linear plot. March 16 2012
By Anja Rebekka Schultze - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I watched Circle of Eight today and I honestly could not decide if I like it or hate it. The first you should be aware of is that this movie do not have a linear plot, the movie keep switching between various point in the story's time line, one scene from the end here, and then something from the beginning there. Some might see this as a interesting and original new way to tell a story but it can also be extremely confusing, and it took some time before I got used to it to the point where I could enjoy the story.

The story in Circle of Eight is more than the usual haunted house story and while it starts confusing it do come together in the end. I think the story is quite good, it might not be perfect but it is original enough to stand out among other low budget horror movies. The characters of this movie is interesting, they might be a bit to stereotypical, each of them are one truck ponies where you could sum up their entire personality in one word, you have the hippie, the party girl, the creepy geek and so on, but for this kind of story the characters do not need to be to detailed, and their strange, single track behavior actually adds to their creepiness.

Circle of Eight is about a young woman who movies into an old factory made apartment building called the Dante, there she meets her very strange but apparently friendly at first neighbors and the odd manager who have his office in the elevator. Soon strange things starts to happen and the main character start to see the other tenants dead in horrible ways only to find them alive and well the next moment.

The action of Circle of Eight quite good, the imagery in the film is stunning, the music however falls flat and is completely forgettable. Circle of Eight is an original and interesting movie who tries to hard and get just a little to jumbled and confusing for my tastes. If you are looking for a traditional haunted house movie then this is not it, if you are looking for a dark story about facing the consequences of of one's past and you can deal with a non linear storyline then this might be just the movie for you.

HASH(0x9acf0aa4) out of 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!
HASH(0x9acd4f0c) out of 5 stars 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.
