Rituals… Finally (Most Likely)

I posted this story back in November of 2009. The news was that Rituals was set to hit DVD players from Code Red in November/December of that year. Rue Morgue mag even gave the anticipated release a cover and accompanying piece. Rituals, though, didn’t happen. Now it looks as though this backwoods Canadian proto-slasher is going to be released as early as next week! It’s available for pre-order at various sites online (though not always the most obvious ones), and people are reportedly picking it up in some retail outlets. Code Red has just listed it in its Coming Soon section with an April 19 release date, though people have received notifications that their pre-orders have already shipped. I know I’ve pre-ordered my copy! Regardless, it looks good for this cult favourite that will hopefully reach a wider audience via Code Red. Be on the lookout!

    Isn’t a little late for April fools jokes guys?

    In all seriousness though, any release date from code red could be a joke in the works, but i hope this release come out on it’s date.

    This good news. It’s easy to forget companies like Code Red are putting these films out as labours of love. And the fact that they spend time remastering them and tracking down interviewees f is great for fans.

    Import cds and Axel Music have already started shipping RITUALS out. And the release date has been listed on the Code Red website for a solid week now.

    Thanks Lorrie Lives — I’ve changed the piece to reflect the April 19th release date.
