‘Rites of Spring’ Slashes To VOD/Limited Theaters This Summer

Rites-Of-Spring

IFC Midnight has announced a July 27 VOD and limited theatrical run for Padraig Reynolds’ kidnapping thriller Rites of Spring, which stars genre faves AJ Bowen (The Signal, House of the Devil, A Horrible Way to Die, Hatchet 2) and Anessa Ramsey (YellowBrickRoad, The Signal). It also features creature design by Aaron Sims (A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child, Wrong Turn, The Mist, I Am Legend, Clash of the Titans, The Thing).

In the film, “A group of kidnappers abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite and hide out in an abandoned school on the edge of town. But feelings of guilt soon overtake the kidnappers, dividing the group and putting their entire plan in jeopardy. The evening further spirals out of control when their poorly chosen hideout becomes a hunting ground for a mysterious creature that requires springtime ritualistic sacrifices.

    Saw this at Screamfest last October. Glad to see it finally coming out. Surprisingly cool flick and can’t wait to buy it.

    Danny-E, good to hear you liked it! i think this sounds pretty cool. was the creature design good?

  • Danny-E

    The Creature design was pretty cool and old school. Think Jason mixed with a mummy. No CGI crap. It’s been awhile since I saw it but the movie has that Texas Chainsaw Massacre feel.

    Same trailer as before and it’s still weak. “A mysterious creature that requires springtime ritualistic sacrifices.” Where have I heard that before? Oh right, jeepers creepers! Duh! Hey djblack1313, after you see this film give us all a review ok? I trust your judgement. And what is the name of the new film with the serial killer known as “Gippetto” I forgot.
