“Socially, the Internet is as unifying and divisive as it’s ever been; only now, when the entire world is connected, it’s never been harder to unplug.” — Dark/Web
That statement rings true for many who find themselves constantly engaged with the internet.

For others, it means venturing to a place few are aware even exists — such is the premise behind the new online series, Dark/Web.

A Vicious Circle of Liars: A Film Review
Circle is a psychological horror feature. From Taggart Productions and Votiv Films, the film stars Julie Benz (Saw V), Mercy Malick, Autumn Federici and Michael Nardelli. Circle had its World Premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, in May of 2015. And, Circle is a compelling feature that looks at people's inherent biases, in a psychological fashion. The characters are diverse, but most of their motivations are unified by their will to survive. Though, some find their own demise a little quicker than others. Overall, the film is an entertaining feature. But, the social message is a little disconcerting; dishonesty has its rewards.

SIFF 2015: Festival Roundtable (Week Two)
Circle chronicles the attempts of a group of reluctant prisoners in a darkened room as they try to figure out why an energy bolt is killing one of their number every two minutes. Before too long, they figure out that they can vote on who lives and who perishes, which invariably leads to human nature turning ugly. Yeah, it’s 12 Angry Men and The Twilight Zone sitting on a picnic bench with Cube, but if its characterizations are a little one-note in places, it more than delivers the goods in the tension department.

SIFF Cinema Uptown hosts world premiere of ‘Circle’
We live in a world of labels. People face them everyday in our society by assigning race, color, religion, financial status and education to people and ideas. In the end, this leaves us filled with prejudices against each other. These prejudices and their value to each individual are what stand at the core of the psychological sci-fi thriller “Circle” (2015).

“Circle” (#SIFF2015 review) – The allegory of the grave
Many high-concept horror films have striven for the strong, minimalistic dissection of the value of a human life that is on display in Circle. And yet all of them, whether Saws or Purges, have gotten lost in the weeds either going for audience-pleasing gore or on-the-nose class warfare. Circle, from web-series directors Aaron Hann and Mario Miscione, is the apotheosis of the concept – placing 50 participants in a room and murdering one of them every two minutes with a simple bolt of CGI lightning. The body is immediately shuffled from the room by an unseen force, and the remaining participants are momentarily insulated from the horrific truth and consequences of their predicament. With simple (and completely secretive) motions of their hands and fingers, they are choosing the next person who will die.

SIFF 2015 CAPSULE REVIEWS: UNEXPECTED, H., CUB, CIRCLE, BLIND
Once you get past the rather obtuse sci-fi-cum-psycoliogical-thriller setup in which a round-robin of people vote for who’s to die next, Circle has some half-decent philosophical positioning to offer. It attempts to be a sci-fi offshoot of 12 Angry Men in breaking down prejudices in a one location environ made lively by votes, alliances and paranoia per a good “Survivor” season and matched with a suspect robotic Russian Roulette MacGuffin. The script can be decent enough but is undone by an abundance of telegraphed overacting, fool-hardy plot resolutions and an underwhelming head-scratcher
of an ending.

SIFF Thriller 'Circle' Isn't Spinning its Wheels
Stiefel and Votiv are once more staking a claim at the 2015 Seattle International Film Festival with a new thriller, Circle. If it’s not going to set the world ablaze with its originality, the movie’s undeniably an extremely entertaining, well-engineered nail-biter that mines some genuine jumps and surprises from a time-honored setup.

SIFF 2015: Twisted ‘Circle’ is an irresistible thought experiment
Society loves a good label. After all, labels allow us to judge people without the hassle of actually talking to them. But what if these superficial judgments were a matter of life and death? That’s the question posed by the fascinating new psychological thriller, Circle. Writer-directors Aaron Hann and Mario Miscione mix satire, horror, and science fiction into an irresistible social experiment that puts all of us under the microscope. Relentless and gripping, Circle is a battle royal for “civilized” society.

SIFF 2015: ‘CIRCLE’ MOVIE REVIEW
A spooky mind-fuck suspense drama reminiscent of The Twilight Zone (or more recently, the BBC’s superb Black Mirror series), Circle hits its marks more often than not, and only rarely stumbles. Right off the bat, the movie tosses the audience into the void of the unknown right alongside the featured characters, who emerge from the pre-credit darkness observing a crowded room full of strangers. Each of these 50 strangers stands on a red circle not more than two feet in diameter, and are arranged in a larger grouping that is likewise circular. After a handful of deaths, the men and women realize that they are trapped in-place by an impersonal device, which sits in the middle of the room and zaps/kills people if they move outside their personal sphere. It gets worse, though: every few minutes, a countdown is initiated that forces
the group to vote for a sacrificial victim lest a random one is chosen for them.

May 07, 2015
If you want something darker, look no further than the World premiere of Circle. Directors Aaron Hann and Mario Miscione turn up the psychological warfare by throwing 50 strangers into a circle and killing one of them every two minutes. It becomes clear that the next victim is not random; the surviving players can determine who dies next. It’s a deliciously-wicked premise, sure to expose the good, the bad, and the ugly of human nature.

This isn’t a new form of the Carousel from Logan’s Run. Instead, Circle is a new thriller with an intriguing concept.
In a massive, mysterious chamber, fifty strangers awaken to find themselves trapped with no memory of how they got there. Organized in an inward- facing circle and unable to move, they quickly learn that every two minutes one of them must die... executed by a strange device in the center of the room. At first the attacks seem random, but soon the strangers realize that they, as a group, have the power to decide who will be the next to be killed. A vote. A chance to control the machine. But how can they choose who deserves to die? And what happens when there is only one person left?
