[4.75/10] Rites of Spring (2012)

Rites of Spring (2012)

QuickRating: Part tired slasher flick, part kidnapping thriller, part Jeepers Creepers-inspired monster movie, "Rites of Spring" has some intense moments and gruesome death scenes, but at the end of the day, from the formulaic opening sequence to the disappointingly unsatisfying conclusion and largely stereotypical characters, everything about this mess of an indie horror film is heavily built on cliches and shamelessly borrowed from many others and better genre movies.

I have never even heard of this. Not at Fangoria, nothing. I think I will probably avoid after reading your review here. :)

Me neither. LOL. I'm kidding, of course. :)

It's an indie flick, but not a cheap one. It looks okay, but it's all way too familiar to be interesting. Give it a miss.
