For those of you who have been fans of IFC’s steady release of genre offerings – which include Penumbra, Kill List, and most recently The Pact – you’ll want to make sure to check out their latest bit of psychological horror, Rites of Spring, which we’ve been notified is hitting limited theaters and VOD on July 27th. Starring AJ Bowen (The House of the Devil, A Horrible Way to Die) and Anessa Ramsey (YellowBrickRoad, The Signal) this film looks to be a terse pulse-pounding horror flick. But of course, you’ll want to keep an eye out for our official review so we can let you know what we really think. All I’m saying for the moment is that AJ Bowen gets some mighty creepy roles.

For the time being, check out the trailer and official synopsis below…

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.

Edit: we’ve now got a review from Dustin, which you can read here.
