The film raises a very interesting question, regarding the topic, who for your family? Your biological parents are your blood brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts? It is, in other words we can say that the family is not choose. Your "right of blood" and is fundamental to the relationship and the tree. But we live in the modern world, and know all of our progressive society moves on and then, no matter what. Foster parents, "children of tubes", children's homes, all it creates a contemporary set of our society, without which have no way. But unfortunately it factor the horrifying popularity increases, the entry of people in the religious (and not only) communities and sects. History knows many cases when people join in such groups are already has ceased to be a person, losing this is their identity, according to the essence of being a weak-willed puppet in the hands of cunning puppeteers. With then you do not belong to me, your main task is to serve and fulfill the whim of his "master", not noticing anything around. To all more and more people fall in such cases of "voluntary slavery".

Director and editor, known for its direct involvement in the creation of the horror franchise "Saw," Kevin Greutert shot is decent, but fairly ambiguous Thriller "the Jackals". The film which is very good is loyal to the atmosphere of rhinestone, nervousness and despair, to admit, in some scenes of the degree of suspense really tense to the utmost, why, all my attention was riveted to the monitor screen. But the illogic, and even a slight absurdity in the actions of the main characters, literally forced me, and it irritably clicked his tongue at the view. Adding this, frankly, far nelegalnu acting, in the performance of Deborah Kara Unger. The whole film, it character walk with a sad and sleepy face when not try to give at least one strong emotion, at this track record of this actress are pretty strong pattern. But to its the game became for me a rather unpleasant surprise. It the colleague "on shop" in the face, Chelsea Ricketts coped, much better. What as for male actors, then these claims was. To pay my opinion, one of the most underrated actors Stephen Dorff, in this film also nothing remarkable noted, due to the fact that his character was given not so much of the time. Operator and composer's work, proved to be quite good.

So, the film "the Jackals" 2017 release — it is quite a watchable Thriller with a good share of suspense, it is an average script, though, and raising a rather relevant topic of "family", with more or less distinct acting. But this close the spirits of the paintings, such as "You're dead!" and"Strangers", the film loses literally all the parameters.

From the outset Kevin Gramerta forced to watch this painting the corner of a family relationship, where one of the members, a man of 23 kind, fell under the influence of the sect, the main attribute which are the images of jackals. How Justin came under the influence storonik of the cult of violence is not clear this is the main mistake the filmmakers. Would be much more interesting to watch a story that has a base, and so we see a slightly crumpled version.

And it is worth noting that the family of Justin stole it from the clutches of occultists. The composition of the rescuers classic: parents of a hero, a brother, a girl with a child of course the cool guy in the past military. In turn, the sect is not going so just give your cock and because during the movie we will struggle the choice of the hero between the family and the cult. Perhaps this choice will cost the lives of his family, but all the cards will reveal the actual film.

The film keeps in suspense, and netoroplivo development allows the Director to reveal the images of the characters and their relationship K. "the Possessed"

Acting caste to cope quite well, but nothing outstanding to us does not show. Good Ben Sullivan, it zazombirovanny the hero believe and genuinely feel the hate.

Small duration also contributes to the relative success of the film, because she bored shows exactly what the Director intended,.

What the decision will leave a hero? The interchange will have an interesting.

As the verdict, a good opening theme of cults of violence and family relations, which leads to a decent Thriller.

After the first opening scene, not bad, but still meaningless allusions to"Halloween" John carpenter, "the Circles of the devil" are dipped into a prospective, neurotic, and mysterious scenario. Director Kevin Greutert, according to all chose to give the audience something that was popular in the horror of the 1980s and is currently used is that in rare horror movies, retro. Of course, admittedly, I Director of it succeeded his goal, he realized very effectively, but the final nihilism of the film and the implementation level are able to transform what is happening in an annoying waste of time. "Jackals" — project the level that will appeal to hardcore fans of the genre, but nothing will give the rest of the audience, because is forgotten before the blood of the victims has dried on the wooden floor of the hut.

"Circles of the devil" not wasting lying unnecessarily. Basically the story tells about the events of 1983, the year when a certain family is trying to save them 20-year-old son Justin from the clutches of a murderous cult. Mom, dad, brother, girlfriend of the individual (a child!), and also trimmed and neat Stephen Dorff in the role of Jimmy, a master extract of sects, are collected in a small isolated cabin in the depths of a California forest. Jimmy needs to open his mind Justin, but it doesn't help that Justin is obsessed (?). In any case, the plot thickens and transformirovalsya soon in some children of Satan: the cabin is surrounded by unpleasant personality with axes.

Meanwhile, the script of "Circles" is constantly mistaken. Conventionally, the history can be divided into two parts, where, of course, the main characters — the people inside the house. In one case, they solve their personal problems, and another — trying to survive. Alas, the family members stuck not only the cabin, but in clumsy conventions of the scripts of horror films. Relatives of Justin go back and forth, I explain to each other the obvious, complain, throw a ridiculous lines of dialogue... in short, doing everything to how to go the light. The script, by itself, contains in itself clever moments (for instance, the characters made improvised weapons from the kitchen utensils), but the "Circles" looks sad. I think it would be much acquired, if the heroes have made all forces for survival.

Antagonists, with facing the characters, nor adds a sense of fear. Members of the cult of the dog name all as selection of a nameless, faceless and silent. This ambiguity is not brings a sense of mystery, although the creators apparently at this is expected. To really silent cultists makes them even less intriguing as villainous force. All they want to, well, bring back Justin, and probably chop of the inhabitants of the hut. Frankly, they are boring its directness.

What about the protagonists? The characters are not contain anything that could surprise: brother Justin's shrill yelling, the girlfriend is crying and cares the fate of the child, the mother always complains, Jimmy was need to Stephen Dorff was where to do and the hero of the occasion Justin (Oh, excuse me, Thanatos) taunts and threatens. The father of the family scenario gave presence of mind, but not means it made an interesting character. And despite outline the field of the history of the family, the psychodrama here is rather weak.

In the "Circles of the devil" family in captivity seems doomed with the beginning. Alas, the desire of the Director to make Frank "dill" in this plot plan is probably devalues the work: the audience is confronted not with the characters, and with some mannequins doomed to die. In connection this question the results of Justin's becoming more obvious plot twists do not surprise you, but from the actions of the characters want to shrug my shoulders. Some elements of the "Circles" indicate the influence of Rob Zombie, but there is no involuntary mix of Comedy and violence, I want to say that "Circles of the devil" — operating a typical horror film, smugly brandishing hopelessness as the hallmark.
