The Devil's Circle



True crime writer Pete Rutherford takes a drastic diversion in his career when he’s persuaded to research the deaths and disappearances near the mysterious “Tramping Ground” in a rural town. Unable to ignore its fascination, Pete presses forward with his project, establishing the groundwork for a chilling prophecy that has simply been biding its time in releasing one final evil upon mankind.

We have a great track record of producing quality motion pictures but we still need support in certain departments to help bring The Devil's Circle to the screen. In the narrative space, a team certainly isn't complete without the sum of its cast, crew and other partners, to actualize a story like this and we certainly love the idea of building a relationship that could lead to other future projects.
