Rites of Spring (2011)
Rites of Spring will come to VOD this upcoming July 27, 2012. Talk about mashing up two horror genres. Rites of Spring first has us viewing a kidnapping then presumably some form of torture in the process. Only to be followed up with the whole abduction happening on the land of some mad blood thirsty creature looking for sacrifices. Seems worth watching this horror film just to see where the story goes.
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 them, 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.
