One of the most aggressively bizarre films in recent memory, Welcome to the Circle is a genuinely nightmarish, creepy, trippy, almost Lynchian Canadian "horror" film about a sinister mind control cult and the survivors who are trying to escape its clutches. A camping misadventure forces a young girl and her father into the realm of a demon-worshiping cult known as The Circle, a New Age-ish commune living in cabins in the woods and headed by an L. Ron Hubbard-like zealot. 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.

    Will not disappoint fans of deeper horror/thriller movies. Gave it a shot as a 99¢ rental, and after watching, would have spent more. No spoilers, but loads of psychologically disturbing fun.

    Fun ride. Kind of a “waiting for gotto” feel. Had me entertained throughout.

    Probably makes more sense if you are in a specific mental state induced by a psychedelic drug.
