Private Project

Circle of Bones

When Filipino police investigate a lone survivor from a series of bizarre and macabre cult murder-sacrifices that has left a trail of bloody, dismembered bodies and bones, they find a former American FBI agent living in seclusion - disfigured, traumatized and mentally unstable. Her accounts of supernatural events, demonic possessions, ancient prophecies and child sacrifices only sound too incredulous, where lines are blurred, bordering between truth, deception or delusion.

Director Statement

This film is a supernatural thriller based on my unpublished book, “Araw Ng Yawa (Day of the Devil)” - a tale of local superstitions and demon possessions in the Visayas region of the Philippines. Set in the picturesque island of Panglao, Bohol, the story is told by a lone survivor of a mysterious cult suspected of devil-worship, mass murders and human sacrifices.
