Rites of Spring

Two horrifying plot threads become inextricably intertwined in the unnerving thriller Rites of Spring. Two female office workers are taken captive by the Stranger, a mysterious farmer who must, at the start of every spring, present young women as a ritual sacrifice to a hideous supernatural creature living beneath the farmer's barn. One of the girls escapes and winds up seeking refuge in an abandoned schoolhouse - where kidnappers happen to be holding the daughter of a wealthy socialite for ransom. The frightened intruder puts the kidnappers' entire plan in jeopardy, especially when their poorly chosen hideout becomes a hunting ground for the deadly monster.

A unique blend of crime thriller and supernatural suspense tale, Rites of Spring shocks from start to finish and showcases a fresh new take on the horror genre. The IFC Midnight theatrical release stars Anessa Ramsey (Footloose, The 5th Quarter), Katherine Randolph (iCrime, Knifepoint), Sonny Marinelli (Rosewood Lane, Vegas) and AJ Bowen (The Signal, The House of the Devil, A Horrible Way to Die). John Anderson of Variety said, "Helmer-writer Padraig Reynolds creates a dizzying pastiche of genre conventions, and he has a terrific actress in Anessa Ramsey, who's that rare thing in horror, a thoroughly convincing victim."
