A couple more limited-release horror movies have been added to the summer slate, both of which seem promising:
- Rites of Spring: The Signal stars AJ Bowen and Anessa Ramsey reunite in the story of kidnappers who find that their hiding place is in the hunting ground for a murderous creature. It hits both theaters and video-on-demand on July 27.
- The Awakening: Fans of The Woman in Black might want to take note of this, another period British ghost movie -- this one set in the 1920s and starring Rebecca Hall (The Prestige, The Town) as a skeptic who has written a book about debunking the supernatural. Her beliefs (or lack thereof), however, are put to the test when a teacher, played by Dominic West (The Wire, 300), asks her to investigate rumors of the ghost of a recently deceased student haunting his all-boys boarding school. It hits theaters on August 10.
Mark your calendars!
