Black Circle Boys ★½ 1997 (R)

Depressed high schooler Kyle (Bairstow) is still trying to fit in at his new school. He makes the mistake of getting involved with the “Black Circle Boys”—a clique of losers involved with drugs and the occult that's led by Shane (Mabius). The Boys enjoy malicious pranks and Kyle begins to have qualms about his participation but Shane doesn't want to let him go. Murky script gets increasingly silly as pic progresses. 100m/C VHS, DVD . Scott Bairstow, Eric Mabius, Heath Lourwood, Chad Lindberg, Tara Subkoff, Dee Wallace Stone, Donnie Wahlberg, John Doe; D: Matthew Carnahan; W: Matthew Carnahan; C: Geary McLeod.
