Audience Reviews for Rites of Spring

  • Aug 11, 2015
    The coolest thing about this film is the old-school poster, bringing up posters from old, 70s exploitation films. I mean that pretty much tells you all you need to know about the film. It's not what I would call a particularly good mix of horror and kidnapping caper genres. I suppose that keeps the film from being just a generic horror film but, instead, it's a generic kidnapping caper AND a generic horror film. Not to mention the fact that these two stories simply take forever to converge and it's simply too late by that point to make this any interesting. The script is uninspired and underdeveloped. The acting isn't really much better. I like AJ Bowen, but he doesn't really do much of anything here. Not like the rest of the cast really made an effort. Either they weren't motivated, they were poorly directed or the worst cuts were chose in the editing process. It could very well be a mix of all three, but the acting is pretty bad all things considered. The horror aspects themselves are pretty much all the generic slasher cliches you've come to know and loathe. I mean there's some gore, but it looks bad and it isn't particularly effective. It just feels like it's the section where people die horribly, not cause it felt like it was a logical step in the story. If we can call what this film did an actual story. It is what it is, but this just isn't a very good movie. It pretty much fails on every level imaginable. It's not like it fails so horrifically that this ends up being a terrible movie, but it does fail at a lot of the things that it sets out to do. The movie is 80 minutes long but it feels considerably longer than that due to how the film is paced. I'm trying to think of anything the film did right. Some of the gore looks ok, but it's not as ridiculously violent, like The Evil Dead remake was, in order to make it any good. I just don't have much else to say about this movie honestly. It's a bad horror movie in genre that's pretty much littered with them. It won't stand out due to its badness, it's not an entertaining kind of bad. It'll be an obscure horror film that, might, in the future get a cult following. Because almost every movie now has a cult following. Either way, this movie is bad and I wouldn't recommend it. You can do much better.
