Rites of Passage Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Nathan (Ryan Donowho), an anthropology student, invites a few of his classmates and their professor (Stephen Dorff) to his family's abandoned ranch once a sacred Chumash burial ground to recreate an ancient ceremony. There they meet Nathan's psychotic older brother Benny (Wes Bentley) and drug fueled Delgado (Christian Slater). The students then embark on a rite of passage that no one will ever forget.

Review: This film didn't give me a lot of hope going in, but I ended up truly enjoying it.  The basis is that an anthropology student brings some classmates into the woods to do a mock ritual for extra credit and someone takes advantage of this to exact some menacing revenge.  A notable performance by Christian Slater in this one.  Its definately worth the watch.

Interest Range: Drama, Thriller
