Help Me Figure Out This Clip From ‘Ritual’

4-ritual

After Dark Films’ Ritual, arrives on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Digital HD and Video on Demand December 31st from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. And now we have a new clip from the film, which doesn’t really put the best foot forward. Why show us this? We don’t know the characters yet. Why not tantalize us a little?

Directed by Mickey Keating (Ultra Violence), and starring Lisa Summerscales (Web Series “Destroy the Alpha Gammas”), Dean Cates (TV’s Freshman) and Derek Phillips (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”), Ritual tells the tale of a young woman and her estranged husband, who become entangled with a horrifying cult and find themselves swept into a world of kidnapping, violence and satanic rituals.

A long time ago, Tom and Lovely were married and everything was perfect. But that’s over. When Lovely kills a man after he tries to drug and kidnap her, she calls Tom for help and while cleaning up, they find a VHS tape that depicts a satanic ritual in which a woman is brutally murdered. When they’re forced to return to the scene they discover just how far this cult will go to perform their ritual.

    I agree that the choice of clip to show is indeed pointless. Without the article to introduce the clip to the reader, one would not have the slightest hint that the clip is from a horror movie. The trailer itself is ok; a blend of Vacancy & The House of the Devil. My interest is peeked.

    Blegh.. how did this make it to the front page? (The movie in general, not just the clip)
