Recently in the network appeared the new film Padraig Reynolds "Spring rituals". The film calls itself a Thriller, but I think he is well imbued with the mystical atmosphere, and it can be safely counted among the horror movies with mystical delivery...

First and foremost, the film drew to its standard plot. As always, a group of people who fight for their lives and a stupidly die from the hands of an unknown maniac. To be honest, I love those movies. I no matter what they are the same, only with different actors.

I just want to mention that all the actors are convincing, but the characters are not all time to open up, so how they were killed it is very fast. Liked the game Anessa Ramsey and Katherine Randolph. Even though they and main characters, they are the often, but enjoy I have time. "Spring rituals", you can compare with such films as  the"Attacker" and"Holy place".

The film is a lot of advantages, how and cons. The main advantages of the film, that the murder look quite real. The blood — not some sort of paint or ketchup. Actors as I have said not replay. The atmosphere of the film delivery. I wonder what all over. Well, perhaps of the minuses, I will provide undisclosed the identity of the maniac: Who is he? Why kill? Why spring? Also, who knows what happened little girl. And in a hurry made the ending of the imagination to think out everything yourself.

Since ancient times, people made sacrifices to their gods, — food, gold or life. And all done in order to go rain, have the cows would not born two-headed calves or the harvest died. But changed to replace the blood-thirsty gods, came other, more kind, however, believers will not gone away, just changed to a different location and now live in small remote villages. In today's movie we will talk time about these guys, and about their deity. So, it — "Spring rituals".

The plot of the picture is simple and uncomplicated. A group of criminals kidnaps the daughter of a millionaire in the hope of receiving a ransom. They hide in an old mansion which has been neglected for many years. Mansion and really abandoned, and here is the village next to him — no. The thing that near hanging around a certain crazy that brings a human sacrifice to his dark deity. Well, well gentlemen bandits here it — justice.

That is not say a beginning of the film was quite intriguing. Here that every year in these places, lost a lot of people here and a sinister looking figure in a hoodie who steals young people, and then feed something living in the basement with the blood of young maidens. In other words, at the film had all the chances to become a fairly good horror, thanks to which it would be possible to while away the evening. But the Director, who is also and screenwriter, managed to fuck up everything good, that was this film literally moments over twenty. Frankly, for this takes talent, but it would be better Mr. Reynolds sent him on creation, and not the destruction, but let's order.

In the course of watching this "movie" is a feeling that the Director had a few ideas, which he shoved in there could, and everything else is left to the mercy of improvisation. Why I came to a similar conclusion? Yes very simple. Have we have a redneck who kidnaps people in mostly girls, and then feeds them... their deity? Son? The victim of genetic experiments? The film is not bother to answer. So that's the creature lives in basement for some strange reason, the twenty-first of March all begins to crumble. Uh, human sacrifice, as was developed for in order to appease an evil monster, isn't it? Most of all, I behind life and people in sacrifice solely for the sake of fun. So the characters in the movie have just did an incredible margin of safety, which can only contribute to their nonsense. One of the characters in hand, cut the vein and she is so, surprise, then felt just fine. Another character three hit with an axe on the back, and he showed some physical activity. And the chloroform from our superheroes and even the immune system. Yes, too, such adolescents America and really is invincible...

What to acting then in this film it simply no. The heroes go with wooden faces, sometimes portraying something similar to cry, characters characters not opened.

Cinematography pleases the eye and fills the heart with joy. The picture is constantly blurry, and the camera manages to even in peaceful scenes slightly shaking a little. Camera angles for filming are selected most unfortunate, so what the viewer will be pleased, Yes. And here the scenery turned out to the surprise is good. Well, well, we have before us another operator, which destined to make films about wild and not cheap horror movies.

So the result? And in the end, we see a movie at which were quite good skills, but not a script, terrible actors, the lack of atmosphere, and so bad camera work put an end to these undertakings. So my advice — spend your time on more worthy movie, thank you.
