Late Phases director wraps supernatural horror film Black Circle — exclusive
Writer-director Adrián García Bogliano has wrapped principal photography on his new film, the Swedish-language supernatural horror movie Svart Cirkel (Black Circle) in Stockholm, EW can reveal exclusively. The film follows the story of two sisters whose lives change dramatically after going through hypnosis using a mysterious vinyl album recorded in the 1970s.
Black Circle stars Felice Jankell and Christina Lindberg, whose performance in the 1973 film They Call Her One Eye partly inspired Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies. The film also stars Hanna Asp, Hanna and Erica Midfjäll, Madeleine Trollvik, Hans Sandquist, Inger Nilsson, Iwa Boman, and the singer Johan Palm. Bogliano’s previous directing credits include 2011’s Penumbra, the 2012 horror anthology The ABCs of Death, the 2014 werewolf film Late Phases, and the recently-released, Scherzo Diabolico.
”It was a blast to shoot this film with an amazing cast of performers from the most different backgrounds and coming with exciting approaches to the material,” said Bogliano in a statement. “It was exciting to have the chance to do something that takes place in a country with such a unique culture and an overwhelming film history.”
Rickard Gramfors and his partner Bo Gramfors are producing Black Circle for Sweden’s Klubb Super 8 in association with Scherzo Diabolico producer Andrea Quiroz Hernandez and her company Salto de Fe Films.
