"Fear has a season!" Coming to select theaters and VOD July 27th is Padraig Reynolds's crowd-pleasing thriller Rites of Spring. This gritty, edge-of-your-seat ride follows a group of kidnappers who abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite, hiding her in an abandoned school out in the middle of the woods. Feelings of guilt soon overtake the group, dividing the captors 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. We have three exclusive photos from this IFC Midnight treat. Check out genre favorite AJ Bowen and Anessa Ramsey moments before their lives take a drastic turn for the worse.


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