"Rites of Spring" yields a slender bounty.

The acting is shaky, the scare scenes are fairly stock, and it takes way too long for Reynolds to put all his pieces in play, especially given that the movie doesn't have much of an ending.

What makes Rites of Spring worthwhile is that it plays like a kidnapping caper some slasher happened to slice its way into, which keeps the premise fresh enough to hold down a 90-minute feature.

Between uninspired acting and an almost insultingly underdeveloped script, Wormface and company fail to caputre any originality or creativity

Rites of Spring fuses two durable movie genres together, but neither supplies the requisite chills we demand.

Padraig Reynolds's film has no interest in self-awareness, and in fact wears stupidity as a sort of badge of honor.
