A Star of David with a circle round it is known as the Seal of Solomon.
"In Medieval Jewish, Christian and Islamic legends, the Seal of Solomon was a magical signet ring said to have been possessed by King Solomon, which variously gave him the power to command demons, genies (or jinni), or to speak with animals." from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_of_Solomon
A five-pointed star with a ring round it is probably what you have seen in movies. This is called a "pentacle" and has been misappropriated by movies - it does not necessarily have an evil meaning: http://www.religioustolerance.org/wic_pent.htm

The Star of David has four points.

A star of David is 6 pointed.
The image used in horror movies is 5 pointed and is called a pentagram and represents the head, hands and feet of a spread person or demon confined in the circle.
