director Padraig Reynolds' Rites of Spring premiers at the Screamfest Film Festival in Hollywood CA this Friday for those lucky folks who are able to attend. Not us, though, as we're in Canada, eh!
The film follows a group of kidnappers who abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite and hide out in an abandoned school on the edge of a town. But feelings of guilt soon overtake the kidnappers, dividing them 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.
Sounds like fun, and it stars genre faves AJ Bowen and Anessa Ramsey. Plus the creature is designed by Aaron Sims, who's crafted monsters for films like The Mist, The Thing, and I Am Legend, just to name a few.
I have to admit the preview, featured here care of Bloody Disgusting, looks pretty slick. It's the kind of flick we dig in The Basement. We'll know for sure once we get our bloody little mitts on it. To learn more, check out the official website.
