About

The Ritual is a film that can only be produced outside of the studio system at this point... Every investor we've talked to has wanted things about the film changed to lessen the extremity of the film. As film makers we value our story and think that it deserves to be told in the way it was intended and not softened or dulled to appeal to a larger amount of the viewing population. Which means that it is up to YOU the audience to help make it happen. Follow us on facebook Here.

The last film to be made by Adam Ahlbrandt and most of the cast and crew involved in this project was "Cross Bearer" a highly stylistic slasher film in the vein of those produced in the late 70's and early 80's. The film has gained a large measure of cult success, including being named by Patrick Dolan of Rue Morgue as one of the top 5 independent horror films of 2012. The film has played numerous film festivals and various theaters across the United States. It was produced much in the same way that the Ritual will be, by a group of hard working film makers who made it for the love of the work. To find out more go to www.crossbearermovie.com or check us out on facebook at www.facebook.com/crossbearermovie 

We as film makers are operating in true independence, we don't let our lack of capital make creative decisions for us. We try and stay true to our vision and goal even if this means that we must put our every resource into the matter. This film needs very little in the way of funds to be made(Which is evident by the low target goal). It centers around a small world filled with despotic pimps, hookers and junkies and as such is intended to have an aspect of grit and grime to its production. We as the cast and crew are only asking for the small amount that we need to cover the most basic of our needs to produce the film.

Risks and challenges

We as the cast and crew are only asking for the small amount that we need to cover the most basic of our needs to produce the film. Food, gas, hard drives, hotel rooms, locations, equipment rental and special effects all have a measure of cost. While we implore you to give what you can, we also ask that you look at the landscape of modern film making and ask yourself what types of films you want to see. Projects like this one represent the counter balance to the bigger budget cookie cutter films that are produced with profit before creativity in mind. We thank you for taking the time to look at our page and hope that even if you decide not to support us that you will seek out other new voices who need your support. Thanks again for your time!-The Cast and Crew of The Ritual
