A supernatural horror film. A camping misadventure forces a young girl and her father into the realm of a demon-worshiping cult known as The Circle, whose compound is nestled deep in the woods. As the pair become trapped in The Circle’s increasingly frightening sphere of indoctrination, a case-hardened professional cult deprogrammer and his two clients attempt to kidnap/reclaim one of group’s members. Grizzly rituals are soon revealed to be part of a terrifying, surreal, alternate reality that has been constructed by the cult’s mysterious, isolated leader. Escape is the only objective, but all of them are trapped in The Circle. Starring Heather Doerksen (Pacific Rim), Matthew MacCaull (Star Trek Beyond), and Taylor Dianne Robinson (Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn).
Reviews

“Pitching its camp somewhere between Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s The Endless (2017) and Riley Stearns’ Faults (2014), Fowler’s literal cult movie will leave you bewildered and shell-shocked – and perhaps, once its crazy ideas and dizzying topographies have got into your head, it will be impossible ever to leave them fully behind.” – Anton Bitel, SciFi Now
