Trivia

This film making adventure started more than 35 years ago when Peter Iliff and Rick Halsey attended the University of California, Santa Barbara. Iliff went on to become an extremely talented screenwriter (Point Break, Patriot Games) and Halsey spread his passion for the natural world as a biology teacher/writer. Every once and awhile, the two pals would drive up to Santa Barbara and stay at Halsey's land to write. The property has a large number of greenhouses that are slowly falling apart since they were taken out of prodction in 1980s. Both always thought the place would provide an excellent set for a movie. Then suddenly, November 2009, the time was right. Iliff and Halsey wrote their story, finished the screenplay, attracted the necessary capital, and rolled into action. By the end of August they were in pre-production. With their assembled cast of remarkably talented actors and dedicated crew, they started filming "Rites of Passage" on October 13. They wrapped November 17, 2010. See more »

Better than I was expecting!
5 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is by no means an amazing film. However, it was pretty funny and I left the theater ultimately satisfied. This film was made in Santa Barbara which is my home now and it was cool to watch this movie knowing that aspect. It was a cheesy popcorn thriller but if you watch it knowing that, you will be pleasantly impressed. Overall I did enjoy this film. I can't say it was my favorite movie but definitely worth seeing at least once. It was definitely a breath of fresh air having the comedy mixed with the thriller. I did happen to see the premier of this movie and it made my experience a little more exciting. The directors and some of the actors stayed after for a Q and A, which made me enjoy the movie a little more because you got to sense their passion and how much they enjoyed making the film. This gave me a lighter opinion of the film.
