From such early erotic classics as Maid In Sweden and Anita to her unforgettable performance in Thriller: A Cruel Picture, Christina Lindberg has captivated audiences for over 50 years, and now she returns to the screen courtesy of writer/director Adrian Garcia Bogliano in the psychedelic shocker Black Circle, coming to Standard Edition (no Slipcover) Blu-ray from Synapse Films on September 5, 2023!
Two sisters, Celeste and Isa, fall under the terrifying spell of a mysterious vinyl record from the 1970s. Used to help with stress and bring the listener to a state of calming self-hypnosis, the recording has the unfortunate side-effect of manifesting a doppelganger of the listener into our world. This “double” then grows stronger by the day to copy and take over the life of the person who played the vinyl.
Seeking the help of the woman who originally created the recording, hypnotist Lena Carlsson (Christina Lindberg, Thriller: A Cruel Picture), Celeste and Isa try to banish the doppelgangers back to their own world before their lives are lost forever.
Directed by internationally acclaimed horror master Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Here Comes the Devil, Late Phases), Black Circle is “top-notch psychological horror with a sci-fi bent that, as a doppelganger tale, rivals the best of the remakes of, and films inspired by, the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers” (scariesthings.com).
