Fear Has A Season: RITES OF SPRING

Up until now, the only thing I ever feared about Spring was Spring Cleaning.  Read on for the details.

Rites Of Spring doesn’t sound like a terrifying movie.  It sounds more like a Minnie Driver drama.  However, let me run through a quick check list to prove to you how terrifying Rites Of Spring can be…

Creatures lurking in the shadows?  Check.  Wealthy socialite being kidnapped?  Check.  The ability to scare the heck out of an auidence?  Check.  Getting scared yet?  Excellent.  Check out the synopsis.

A group of kidnappers abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite and hide out in an abandoned school in the middle of the woods. 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.

Written and Directed by Padraig Reynolds and starring AJ Bowen, Anessa Ramsey, Sonny Marinelli, Marco St. John and Katherine Randolph, Rites Of Spring may just become the cult film of the decade.

Rites Of Spring is in theaters and available nationwide on IFC Midnight Cable VOD and Digital Outlets (SundanceNOW, iTunes, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune, Playstation Unlimited) on July 27, 2012.
