A group of anthropology students take a road trip to the family ranch of one of them for a weekend of drinking and taking drugs, the latter under the pretense of researching ancient rituals. They run in trouble, however, because the brother that lives on the seemingly abandoned premises displays disturbing behavior in his search for a "bride" and a stranger named Delgado turns up to enact revenge for a misdeed in the past by one of the students.

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 »

I think the overall movie was okay. Wasn't my type of movie but it kept you on the edge of your feet. I like how it was based around college students, made it more interesting. Not a fan of scary movies like this but its was okay. I think they could have done a better job marketing the movie so i would have gotten to more people. I think it could have been a movie that more people would want to see.
I whole story of the movie is very interesting. I like the start of the movie but not the end. I think it got a little fake.
I would recommend this movie for people like like watching thrillers and don't mind getting jumped from there feet.
