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!
