IFC to release 'Rites of Spring'

I have to say the artwork for IFC's latest acquisition, Rites of Spring, is suitably striking. The film opens theatrically, digitally and on IFC Midnight Cable VOD on July 27th, and is about the kidnapping of the daughter of a wealthy socialite. Rites of Spring is directed by Padraig Reynolds.

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.
